    Diane Kennedy and Rick Bayless are good authors for the topic. Any particular region of Mexico you're interested in?

    I lke Daisy Martinez (Daisy Cooks)for a more generally latin cookbook.

    There are a lot of great Mexican cookbooks out there but you really can't go wrong with just about anything from Rick Bayless or Diane Kennedy, as stated above.

    I would add The Taste of Mexico by Patricia Quintana (1986). Plenty of copies on eBay, alibris and other used book sites.

    Diana Kennedy is a great bet. I met her a couple of years ago and was impressed by her energy and knowledge, being over 90 years old.
