More about my new tortilla press — I’m addicted now. I didn’t know tacos could be this good. My next try was a bit more improvised, and I can’t quite tell you how I made it. The shrimp was a little spicy with onion, garlic, cumin, and maybe some cilantro. I cooked that up fast in a skillet. The inspirationfor the sauce comes from a Sam the Cooking Guy recipe made with some canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, but I fancied it up a bit with heavy cream and a few other tweaks. Basically I just kept tasting it along the way until I was happy. These turned out so well. I really can’t rave enough about having my own tortilla press.

A lot of the books I write about are ones I've edited, so my opinions are very biased. And if I didn't work on the book, someone probably gave it to me for free. So keep that in mind before you take my word for it. Sometimes I just like to give a shout-out to my friends.
