Just Tacos: 100 Delicious Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner


by Shelley Wiseman

'Just Tacos' showcases Shelley Wiseman's mastery of the art of Mexican cuisine. She lived in Mexico as a teenager and returned in her thirties, when she perfected her Mexican culinary skills. Wiseman subsequently used her extensive knowledge of Mexican cuisine to develop recipes at Gourmet Magazine.

Tacos, once a humble Mexican street food, have entered the popular food culture to such an extent that other cuisines are discovering them as a way to sell their own ethnic dishes. Taco’s endless variety of great-tasting flavors satisfies any time of day—in all kinds of ways. 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.

About the Author
Shelley Wiseman was a Food Editor at Gourmet Magazine where she developed recipes and menus. She co-authored' The Mexican Gourmet' (nominated for a Julia Child cookbook award) in 1995 with Maria Dolores Torres Yzabal while she was living in Mexico City and running a French cooking school, L'Ecole de Cuisine La Place.
   Shelley's first contact with Mexico was as a teenager when her father, John Wiseman, a publisher with Time Life Books, and step mother, Sarah, moved to Mexico. She came back to live there in her thirties after six years in France and opened the cooking school. While teaching French cooking she learned more and more about the Mexican cooking that surrounded her. She worked with Marilyn Tausend of Culinary Adventures, Inc. helping to organizing market tours around Mexico, and learned from Diana Kennedy, Roberta Santibanez and Maria Dolores Torres Yzabal, all of whom gave classes in her kitchen. 'Just Tacos' is her second cookbook. Visit Shelley at
