Got the Taco Legend book yesterday, it’s easy to follow and has infinite combinations for meals. Tried few recipes (Arroz Verde, Chicken Fajitas & Salsa Mexicano in the picture) and they are absolutely delish. Shame it’s only paperback.

That's great to see that you've got stuck in! We changed them to paperbacks as the pages in the hardbacks wouldn't easily stay open - I hope you find this one easier to use!

3/5

Spices are very well blended, can't expect anything less from the Spicery as that's what they do best in my opinion. This is a brief review of the new "How To Be A Taco Legend" Cookbook set. The recipes are nice, very authentic, very educated and well written. The layout of the book is lacklustre. For a cookbook set this way, surely the first chapter would be all the different tortillas & how to turn these into nachos first of all, as it is the basis for so many dishes. The recipes are also never linked to the recommended tortilla recipe of which is assumed to of been made for a lot of the recipes. For that 1 star is deducted. The second missing star is because of the quality of cookbook, I've bought every single one of The spicery cookbooks, and they generally are of a brilliant quality all the way down to the materials used in the creation of the book, this one in particular felt different. the embossing on the front is so minor it felt like save the money on that and spend it on a thicker cover to protect the book, as unfortunately in such a small amount of time the whole book has warped. Other than those points, the book and spices are great, I do wish they pumped the price up £5 more to include the lovely tin from the curry one, as it would really make this set. The recipes are brilliant and you have a great team writing them. I would give this 3.5 / 5 but there wasn't an option. Good luck for the next recipes!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our new Taco Legend book, Doug! So, the idea is that you can use any type of tortilla that you like the best with any fillings and condiments etc - there are no hard and fast rules as to what goes with what - play around with it and see what you like the best! As for the book itself, we chose to change it to a paperback as the hardbacks were proving difficult to keep open when using them - these new books will stay open making cooking whilst read

Delicious smoky flavour in the beef and really fresh salsa. Loving the Taco legend cookbook so far

Hooray, it's great to see you're loving the Taco Legend recipes! Everything looks delicious!

4/5

I cooked albondigas with arroz verde, esquires and a salad. I only gave me a score of 4 as I didn’t have enough coriander, but the meal was still very good. The meatballs were light and full of flavour

That looks fab! Nice work!

Enjoying the new taco legend book with a mole poblano and a squash guisado complemented by the essential reds also and some homemade corn tortillas, looking forward to discovering more.

It's great to see everyone is enjoying the recipes, it looks like it's two thumbs up for Taco Legend from the Spicery Little Chefs- terrific!

5/5

Another hit from The Spicery, received this week and cooked our first Taco feast last night - it was delicious! Really like the mix & match nature of the recipes and they were easy to make, the spice blends are flavoursome and its easy to adjust the heat of the dishes. Looking forward to working my way through the rest of the book but so far it certainly seems to be on par with the excellent Curry Legend kit. Very happy :-)

That's brilliant - we look forward to seeing your creations on the Wall of Fame!

First foray into the Taco Legend book but very happy, recipes look really easy and tasty as the three tacos in the photo would attest.

Great job!

4/5

Received my book last week and have been diving in. Love the recipes in the book and the spice blends are great. There are a lot of recipes that rate three chillies or less which is great if you are cooking for folks who aren't keen on hot spicy food. Now to buy a Taco press and other extras! I haven't given it 5 stars as the physical quality of the kit is not produced to as high a standard as the Curry Legend kits. The books are paper back, the tin has been replaced with a cardboard box and the opening and closing of the spice jars does not seem as good. The price is the same though!

Thanks for your review! We opted for paperbacks this time round as we found that the hardbacks wouldn't stay open so this was making them hard to use. It was also fed back to us that the tins weren't being used for storage so we thought we would make it a bit cheaper and send them in cardboard presentation boxes instead. I'm so pleased to hear you like the look of the recipes though - look forward to seeing some of your creations on the Wall of Fame!

5/5

Another incredible kit from The Spicery. I've now made six of the recipes and every one was excellent. I had no idea pickled jalapenos were so easy - and spicy, given that the chillies I used were mild. The spices are really well put together, aromatic and vibrant. There is a real range in the recipes - from simple, quick dishes to the significantly more complex: so like Curry Legend, there is an opportunity to make something that requires relatively little effort or to do a full-on epic meal, from taco fillings to stews. The inclusion of desserts is a nice touch. The style of the salsas and advice on how to make them easily is especially welcome. I made the roasted tomato salsa, which turned out very well indeed, with deep smoky flavours. Similarly to Curry Legend, the recipes invite customisation and are very adaptable: I used cooking chorizo for Chorizo Picante, rather than sausage meat, and simply halved the spices which worked really well. After the success of Curry Legend, I've been searching for a similar product for Mexican food - I'm very pleased that The Spicery has made Taco Legend and it is as good as I had hoped it would be. Well worth the wait! Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your wonderful review- it's great to hear that you're enjoying the recipes and we look forward to seeing your creations on our Wall of Fame! Happy spicing!

We made the chicken tinga, red rice and raisin salsa. Oh boy, it was an absolute treat. Its all over our hands, faces and cat but we don’t care because it tastes so good (cat is fine, just got dripped on). This book is wonderful!

Wow what a treat! Ha, glad the cat is okay- it sounds like this was a truly legendary meal!

5/5

My 12 year old daughter cooked us Chicken Adobo with Charro Beans and Salsa Mexicana- the first recipes we have tried from Taco Legend. We give it a 5 star rating - every bit as delicious as Curry Legend Recipes . Hurrah for Taco Tuesday!

Wow what a treat! Ha, glad the cat is okay- it sounds like this was a truly legendary meal!
