Nopalito: A Mexican Kitchen Review


Nopalito: A Mexican Kitchen

By Gonzalo Guzmán, Stacy Adimando

I received a free copy of Nopalito for my honest opinion.

I needed some new recipes to give myself some variation in what I am eating. Nopalito gives a nice wide variety of Mexican dishes and also gives some useful information on how to prepare ingredients.

Whilst I have not been able to try any of the recipes yet, I do have a few that I shall be trying in the next few weeks like Paletas de Fresas (Strawberry Popsicles), Machaca De Camarón Con Huevos (Smashed Shrimp with Eggs and Salsa), and Tamales De Birria Con Pollo (Tamales with Stewed Chicken).

The layout was very clean. Ideally I would have liked more photos of each dish as I always like to see what it is that I can make, but apart from that the contest of the whole page photographs with the corresponding recipe on the opposite page as well as photo instructions on some of the more complicated techniques made Nopalito a very handy and easy to use cookbook.

My main gripe with Noplito is that their wasn’t enough options for people who did not like hot and spicy food (aka me). I know, what a stupid statement, what should I expect from a Mexican cookbook. They are known for hot and spicy dishes.

If you want a cookbook with different recipes than you normally have that are easy to make, then give Nopalito a try.
