If you think tacos are greasy, unhealthy fast food - think again.
Tacos are so much more than minced beef and grated cheese in a crispy shell; they include fresh, tasty ingredients that are good for you.
Tacos, burritos and quesadillas hail from Mexico and traditional recipes generally involve long-simmered meat or poultry, topped with crispy vegetables, wrapped or sealed in a soft flour or corn tortilla and served with a dollop of spicy salsa.
It is street food par excellence and as the trend has grown, so have the options for fillings.
This book offers a collection of recipes for taco, quesadilla and burrito fillings, with a good selection of contemporary twists to get you hooked on the taco-making and eating craze.
Ideas for Tacos include Chipotle Chicken and Ancho Chilli-Roasted Butternut.
More substantial Burritos include Chorizo, Bean and Pepper; or Chicken Mole.
Quesadillas are perfect for sharing - try a Ham and Egg Breakfast Quesadilla.
Also included are ideas for Sides & Salsas as, often, a taco is only as good as the extra bits you add to it, such as Guacamole, Tomatillo Salsa and Baja Slaw.
