A handsome little promotional cook book, brought to you by the fine folks at Richfield Oil. Issued during the Depression, the foreword notes that recipes in this little book can be made from a variety of ingredients available at your local market "and a small amount of meat," creating "savory, healthful and inexpensive" meals. Recipes include enchiladas, chili verde con carne, and tacos, but also more exotic options such as bacalao, lengue con pollo (tongue with chicken), summer squash with cheese, and squash blossoms. Illustrated with small vignettes of stereotypical Mexican or Spanish scenes, but also the odd choice of a man in a sombrero walking his donkey and waving to the Richfield man at the gas pump. An interesting souvenir from your friendly local oil dealer.
