Fresh Mex Cookbook  
In Chevys & Rio Bravo™ Fresh Mex Cookbook, for the first time ever, Chevys' classic recipes are made available for the home cook. Why are they giving away all of their trade secrets? Well, amigo, here's the biggest secret of all. The thing about Fresh Mex is there are no secrets! The Chevys and Rio Bravo™ philosophy is worn on their sleeves (and sometimes all over their aprons): Keep It Fresh.

When Chevys, everybody's favorite Mexican restaurant, first opened in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1986, they pledged that everything—and they meant everything— would be made fresh from scratch every single day. True to their word, Chevys and Rio Bravo™ (its cousin in the southwest and southeast) make their salsa hourly from blackened tomatoes and serve their tortillas piping hot less than three minutes after they are made.

  • Includes more than 70 easy-to-follow recipes plus color photographs, helpful cooking tips, and entertaining ideas.

  • Chevys, Inc.™ operates 160 restaurants coast to coast, making it the leading independent Mexican restaurant in the country.

In this flashy, full-color Fresh Mex primer you'll learn how to make fabulous fajitas, smoky salsas, tasty tacos, and more.

Recipes are organized into five chapters:

  • Fresh Mex Fun-damentals: Beans, Rice, Guacamole & All the Fixin's
  • Fresh Starts: Salsa, Drinks & Appetizers
  • Sol Food: The Best Tacos, Enchiladas & Tamales Under the Sun
  • Eat a Fajita: Hot Off the Grill & Ready to Wrap
  • Se Habla Dessert: Custards, Caramels & Other Sweets Spoken Here

Headnotes, sidebars, colorful captions, and Fresh Mex Tips deliver basic how-to information, mix-and-match combos, and entertaining suggestions, and with a healthy serving of Chevys attitude.

Chevys & Rio Bravo™ Fresh Mex Cookbook is your invitation to discover Fresh Mex firsthand, not just by eating at their restaurants, but by trying it yourself in your own kitchen.
