Shirley Solis is a Latin American mother of six. From a desire to share her Latin American heritage, she authored Not Just Tacos. It’s much more than a cookbook. It’s a wonderful resource to help your family learn about Latin American countries, geography, culture, and food.

The book begins by giving some information about Latin America. Latin America is a geographical region that includes countries from the top of Mexico to the bottom of Argentina. These countries were once under the control of several European countries, and this has influence their culture. Shirley discusses the diverse geography of Latin America, the charisma and warmth of the Latin American people, and some of the most common customs in Latin America.

Then the book becomes a cookbook resource. Shirley gives information about specific Latin American foods and spices and then gives a variety of recipes from the following countries:

  • Mexico
  • El Salvador
  • Honduras
  • Cuba

  • Panama
  • Venezuela
  • French Guiana
  • Brazil
  • Colombia
  • Ecuador
  • Peru
  • Bolivia
  • Paraguay
  • Chile
  • Uruguay
  • Argentina

This resource would make an excellent accompaniment to a geography study. My younger girls and I are doing geography and cultures this year, and I wish I had had this when we were in South America. I definitely want to go back to it and try out some of these recipes.
