At Mamacita's, we take real pride in serving our guests authentic Mexican dishes made with the finest ingredients available. Like salsas made fresh throughout the day to ensure the ultimate in flavor, Guacamole prepared with only fresh avocados and handmade tamales prepared in the traditional way - wrapped in corn husks for the best taste and to retain moisture. These are but a few of the efforts we make every day to bring you the real flavors of Mexico.
Mexico presents a different face to each person who meets her. Traveling through the country is an experience unique to the individual, even to people on the same journey, whether they are tourists spending a week at an ultra-modern beach resort or ethnologists visiting remote indigenous villages. Each of us has a personal framework through which to view an unfamiliar place or revisit a favorite spot. One of the most people's focuses while traveling is seeking out the distinct cuisine of each region they visit, exploring authentic Mexican foods and beverages.
All travelers to the Big Sky Country know that experiencing the cuisine at Mamacita's Cafe is one of the major highlights of any trip, and everyone brings home with them tales of what they are and the memories they've placed in the scrapbook of their minds. Many request recipes, only to discover that they are family secrets handed down from generation to generation. Until now...Finally, Mamacita's offers a recipe book to commemorate your dining experiences at Mamacita's with tradtional Mexican and Tex-Mex recipes.
Mamacita's Cookbook is the essential resource for everyone wanting to celebrate and honor Hispanic Cooking. Making a special effort to keep cultural Hispanic tradition alive-we've included tamale making, salsa, tortillas and a variety of other recipes.
Her mother, grandmother and matriarchs before them have handed down all of the recipes in this book to Eva Sigsworth. I found myself having to measure ingredients they normally capture in their hands instead of a measuring spoon, following by heart the recipes that were passed down.
While putting this cookbook together I was enthralled with the irresistible nature of the Latino culture. It has been revealed to the mainstream culture through their food: salsa is now the number one condiment in the United States, surpassing ketchup, and tortillas outsell white bread in many parts of the country. At the end of the twentieth century, Latin music and it's starts were embraced overwhelmingly in this country. But there's much more to a community that its food and music. There's history, language and tradition. It is our hope that through this cookbook you will get better acquainted with the booming Latino population and some of their favorite foods.
When preparing your favorite foods remember that spices play a very important role in all Mexican recipes, more so than in most other foods. Most grocery stores have a Spanish aisle to find these specific spices. Rice and beans are a perfect complement to most Mexican recipes. They can make the dish. No cans, no jars, no premixes, and very little grease. We hope that you will be absolutely surprised by how easy cooking Mexican food can be! And fun!
Los amigos buenos, alimento bueno, y muchas bendiciones!
