“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…”

I stopped by the Today Show to make a few of the avocado snacks we’ll be eating in my house for the Super Bowl.

“In the convents around Mexico during the colonial era, the nuns became serious cooks, says Pati Jinich, author of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ and host of the PBS series of the same name. The church was a major power, and it was in the kitchens of the convents where traditional Spanish recipes started to take in local ingredients; many Mexican classics like mole poblano and chiles en nogada supposedly came from the convents.

Rompope reportedly was invented in the convent of Santa Clara, in Puebla. ‘Puebla is known as the city of sweets,’ Jinich says, and the nuns had a reputation for ‘an incredible sweet tooth. . . . They brought all the Spanish recipes, the flans and the sweets made with almonds . . . and started mixing the Spanish recipes that were heavy on the sugar and milk — which was very uncommon for Mexico — with Mexican ingredients’…”

“Culinary heavies all charged up about energy poverty fanned out across the Capitol Wednesday in a last-ditch effort to illuminate lawmakers about the importance of empowering Africa.

The lobbying blitz was coordinated by ONE, a nonprofit that works to bring change in the global health and social justice arenas. The current campaign is focused on carrying the stalled Electrify Africa Act of 2014 across the legislative finish line before lawmakers put a bow on the swirling cromnibus package and wrap up their official business for the year…

‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ host Patricia Jinich, a one-time political analyst who said she jumped ship to join the ranks of the cooking world after exhaustively researching Peruvian ceviches, racked her brain to try and come up with a downside to passing the provision…”
