“Nacida y criada en Ciudad de México, Pati Jinich creció en una familia donde la cocina era muy importante. ‘De hecho, mis tres hermanas mayores están dedicadas profesionalmente a la comida’, nos cuenta Pati. ‘Yo iba por otro camino, pues estudié Ciencias Políticas. Ayudaba a cocinar a mi mamá y mis hermanas, pero sobre todo era una gran comilona. Cuando me casé hace 18 años, y nos mudamos a Dallas, Texas, me entró una inmensa nostalgia por los platos mexicanos y me empecé a meter en la cocina… Primero repetía las recetas tradicionales y luego comencé a jugar libremente con los ingredientes. Hasta que un día abandoné mi carrera, me lancé al abismo culinario y empecé a estudiar en serio…'”

“Lightness is not an attribute usually associated with enchiladas, the most comforting of Mexican tortilla foods. But these enchiladas, filled with a mix of blanched seasoned chard and succulent diced chayote and covered with a classic cooked tomatillo salsa, are both light and incredibly satisfying.

I didn’t skimp on oil to lighten them. When you prepare tortillas in oil that is hot enough, they absorb only a small amount. When I tested the recipe, I used about one-third of a cup of oil to get a half-inch of depth in the pan. After quickly frying 18 tortillas, I found that most of the oil remained in the pan, not weighing down the tortillas.

I take my enchilada-making cues from Pati Jinich, host of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ on PBS. Her instructions for frying are infallible. In the past, I’ve had trouble with tortillas cracking as I rolled them up, but because they were quickly fried, they remained light and intact…”

“When I was growing up, my dad often would make a big pot of beans, usually navy, flavored with ham, and offer us kids bowlfuls. He’d eat them all himself, though. We weren’t eating beans. Are you kidding?

Flash forward a number of decades and, of course, I love having a pot of beans on the stove. Whether dad’s favorite or black beans, cannellini or cranberry, a bowl of beans is a welcome comfort.

A recent hankering sent me searching out a recipe for charro beans, a Mexican dish with more complex flavor than the typical refried beans. I’d had them at restaurants, but never cooked them. They prove simple to make, deriving their smoky flavor from a few ingredients. A version from TV cooking show star and cookbook author Pati Jinich, of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ on PBS, was just what I wanted…”
