  1. Sonia…I LOVE your recipes, thank you so much for sharing! I just read your post on the “Tarta de Durazno you made on 9/14, but the directions are not included, and one of the ingredients is “”turb” – whats this? One last question…you said you also made it w/beer…can you post that reciep as well?

    1. Thanks Liz! The recipe for Tarta de Durazno can be found on the Hispanic Kitchen site, but I will include the link here. Turbinado sugar or sugar in the raw is coarse natural sugar. When sprinkled on the pastry before baking, it creates this wonderful, crisp ans lightly sweet finish. All stores carry it in the baking isle.

  2. I have been looking for recipes like yours for forever! I could never get any of my family members dishes right because recipes were never written down. They’d do it all by memory, but when I’d ask them to tell me so I could right it down, they couldn’t remember 🙂 so thank you so much for taking the time to do create this site:)

    1. Thank you Joey for your feedback. My parents cooked the same way….no recipes. The hardest part for me was trying to figure out measurements, but little by litte and alot of tastings later, I think I finally get it. Lol!

  3. Hi Sonia,
    I noticed hispanic kitchen did an update to there website and the salsa subheaders is no longer there. I was looking for you recipe for salsa verde, In this recipe you add harina to thicken it up. Can I get that recipe from you please?

  4. I just made the chile Colorado with cube meat , and it was the best! Like someone else commented reminded me of my mother. Sonia, where can I find your recipes, this kind of cooking I want to teach my daughter and leave special memories for her and my grandson. So that one day he will say there no cooking like my Grammys 😉.

  5. Hello,
    In your favorites page you have an image with rice with peas in it. Do you have a link for that recipe of rice?

    Thanks
    Kathy

  6. Thank you for the link. I made your Caldo de Albondigas ~Mexican-Style Meatball Soup. It was so delicious. You are quite the cook. Thanks for sharing your recipes. Your recipes are true Mexican food at its best. You have so many great ones it is hard to choose which one I will make next. All your salsa and sauces look wonderful .

    1. Oh good Kathy! I am so happy you liked it. It truly is one of my favorite soup recipes. I actually will be preparing some tomorrow for dinner. Thanks for the feedback!

  7. Whenever I need an authentic Mexican recipe I come to you first! Love everything I’ve made so far!! I am looking to try Tamales for the first time and my husband was telling me that each State from Mexico makes them a little different. He is from Durango any ideas for me on that!? He did say it’s pork and he wants a red sauce. My mother in law will never give up the recipe or she leaves out ingredients so mijo will keep coming back for her cooking 😏

    1. Hi Teresa! My family is from Monterrey and out traditional tamal is a red chile pork tamal. Not sure if this could be similar to the one your husband is talking about. Here is the link in case you want to check it out. This is a simplified recipe for a smaller batch and beginners. If you want the original recipe, I can I will find the link as well. If you need any help, let me know. http://pinaenlacocina.com/2015/03/29/costillas-de-puerco-en-chile-colorado-chile-ancho-braised-pork-ribs/
