Convenient, portable, and affordable, tacos are equally welcome at a dinner party, for brunch, or as an afternoon snack. "Just Tacos "celebrates this versatility with 100 original recipes featuring beef, pork, lamb, seafood, vegetables, breakfast ingredients, and more. Easy-to-make and easy-to-eat, adults, teens, and kids can all try their hand at turning out a tasty taco (or making their own tortillas), whether it's filled with ethnic ingredients or pantry staples. And in these pages tacos don't go it alone--information-packed sidebars offer up excellent salsas, sauces, fun drinks, and solid how-to techniques. "Just Tacos "is a great showcase for this much-loved comfort food.

While there are recipes for basic Chicken Tostadas and fish tacos, many of Wiseman's dishes call for ample prep time, in the form of slow cooking (the pulled pork), marinades or sauces (her ambitious mole), or ingredients (homemade chorizo and homemade Hibiscus-Flavored Corn Tortillas).
