“What Dunlop does for China, Pati Jinich does for Mexico in Pati’s Mexican Table: The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking…She puts extra zing into the chicken and potato salad her mother used to make in Mexico City by adding vinegar and chipotle chilies in adobo sauce. Two small moves make a huge difference. It’s an instant classic…”

“Ever since she was a child, Pati Jinich has been passionate about food and sharing her love for all things culinary – what I didn’t expect was to have her literally share her love of food with me. When we met at The Senator restaurant in Toronto on a Monday morning, Jinich enjoyed a traditional diner breakfast while we chatted, and generously insisted that I try some of her meal, as well. ‘Can I give you a little?’ she asked. ‘Please, it’s so much food! Ask for a plate. Eat with me!’

American public television viewers have witnessed Jinich’s fun and welcoming nature through her popular television show, Pati’s Mexican Table, since 2007, and now with the launch of her debut cookbook of the same name, Jinich’s home-style Mexican cooking is making waves across the continent. Jinich is quick to emphasize, however, that what she cooks isn’t the fast-food, Tex-Mex food that many Canadians might usually eat. ‘Real Mexican food is healthy and wholesome,’ Jinich explains…”

Chipotle Cheesy Pork Sliders with Avocado Spread

It was my friend Tamara´s birthday party. Her husband, Sean, an American who speaks and acts like a Mexico City native (says a Mexico City native), made the dinner for the 40+ guests. The guests were drinking, eating and laughing until their stomachs were hurting, usual for their home. Sean came up to me when he saw me walk in, gave me a plate, placed two of these sliders on and said, “You are going to like these.”

I ate one. YUM.
I said, “There’s chipotle in them!”
I ate two. OMG.
I said, “I can take that platter”, and ate the remaining four. Of course, he was grilling some more.

No, I didn’t even try his Asian tuna sliders. No, I didn’t try his regular cheeseburger sliders. No, of course, I didn’t try his vegetarian sliders. All I wanted were these Chipotle Pork Sliders. I was hooked.

After I had my fill, I told Sean I had to post his recipe on my blog, as I was sure you all would love them just like I did. He obliged, and I tested his recipe many times giving it a few tweaks (hey, you know, I can’t help myself). I added a bit of onion, garlic and oregano to the meat mix and more chipotle (come on Sean, you talk like a Mexican!). I took some of the mayo out of the avocado spread and added the refreshing chives.
