"I'm always looking for new tastes and cuisines in different regions of the country, especially those that involve local culture. We went in search of big Tex-Mex cooking, which San Antonio is known for. I chose Los Barrios from the many Tex-Mex restaurants in the city because I fell in love with Diana Barrios Treviño and the entire Barrios family....The dishes they have created contain amazing combinations and flavors that many people don't get to experience. I wanted the rest of the country to sample what I was tasting. I wanted people to realize that true Tex-Mex cooking isn't just fajitas and burritos. Now, with the Los Barrios Family Cookbook, I am excited to know that people across the country can easily prepare and taste all the delicious dishes I experienced on my visit. Whether you like your food hot, medium, or mild—and these recipes have it all—you'll love the food in this book."
—Emeril Lagasse, from the Foreword.
A simple but great invention. Put this tortilla warmer to work, and you'll see the efficiency of this simple creation. It's as wide as a catcher's mitt. You slip corn or flower tortillas into a pocket along the edge. Put the warmer into a microwave and tortillas come out steaming hot. Heats up to 10 tortillas at a time Or, you can warm tortillas on a griddle and place them into the warmer. They'll stay hot for 35 minutes.
