      ~ Yvette

  2. I stumbled upon your link via wordpress (If you could change one thing about your theme what would it be?) And decided to click on it…so glad I did! I will be subscribing to your blog and keeping your recipes handy 🙂

    • Welcome Desiree! Thanks for clicking and staying a while! Who knew my venting on a forum would lead to you finding us. Thanks for subscribing!

  3. Hi! I’m glad I came upon your website, I’m from el paso but go to school in washington state. I was very excited to see that you had a recipe for chicos tacos!!!! Every time I go back for vacation, thats the first place I visit 🙂

    • Hi Kelli: We all know that Chico’s Tacos is NOT authentic Mexican food, but its ohhhhhhhhhh so delicioso!

  4. didn’t you have a pork pozole posted?

    • Hi Annamarie: I’m sorry we have NOT posted our posole recipe YET! We will be saving that one for our cookbook.

  5. Love your site. I am an American living in Mexico. Sometimes it is hard to find ingredients for the recipes I find on food blogs and it get frustrating. BUT, your blog will mostly likely not be a problem in that area! My husband is Mexican so I assume he will love me trying your recipes. Thanks for posting them! They all look so delicious!

    • Thank you so much Val! So happy you found our blog! Where do you live in Mexico?

    • I live in a town called Jalostotitlan. If you draw a line on a map from Guadalajara to Aguascalientes, Jalos is located between those two cities. We are just a tad closer to Aguascalientes than Guadalajara. I have been here for 3 years now. It was a huge culture shock at first. Now I have gotten used to things. It is a much more laid back approach to life down here.

  6. So far I have enjoyed EVERYONE of these recipes! Thank you so much!
    Just wondering if you would have recipes for ATOLE & ARROZ CON LECHE?
    If you would be so kind as to post?
    Thanks again!
    AND please keep the recipes coming!
    LOVE UM!

    • So happy to hear that Carmen! We have an atole de avena posted here: Our Arroz con leche recipe will be in our printed cookbook.

  7. OMG i can’t wait to try to make some of these recipes! I am not much of a baker or cook so hopefully they’ll turn out!
    Thank you!

  8. Hi, Just stumbled across your site, and I love it! the recipe for capirotada tasts just like my grandmothers, I was wondering when the cookbook wil be out?

    • That’s great Tiffany! So glad you found us! Bienvenida! Our cookbook is scheduled to be available Fall 2012.


    • Hola Rache,

      Have you purchased our Muy Bueno cookbook? Our flour and corn tortilla recipes are in there with step-by-step directions. Buen provecho!

  10. totally love you site jsut stumbled on it and you have so many great reciepes that I want to have I am Mexican and had asked my mom how to make flour tortillas for Bunulos; since she never taught us to make them she always said with so many of us it was cheaper to buy them but you know what she told me ” look it up on the internet” lol… my mom is so funny so I did but so happy to find you here ….

  11. Nice info about food. Thanx and keep it up.

  12. I just came across this site and I am in LOVE. Everything looks amazing and reminds me of my childhood. I shed a few tears reading about your Grandmother and the tamales. That is a tradition that we had growing up and that I continue now. Your story struck a chord with me since my grandmother was the same way. I am still very far from her tamales and I think you said it perfectly; I have a lot more miles ahead before I come close. My gringo husband hates the work but loves the end result.
    I am now a devoted fan!


  13. I am making the Tres Leches Pumpkin Flan…it’s in the oven now. You would think that I have a distinct advantage here in that I am married to Veronica, one of the authors. However, she is in El Paso and I am in Germany, not to mention I’m Gringo! However, Muy Bueno makes it so easy, even a Gringo can follow the recipes! Can’t wait to cut into it tomorrow. Thank you my love! (and Yvette and Mom, too) Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  14. Greetings:
    Thank you for your explanation of the rosca. I was finally able to make it look like yours
    And it tasted great. I bought your cookbook . I like all of the recipes. But my favorite is the pozole recipe. I love pozole but don’t know how to make it. I’m dying to try out your recipe.
    Your cookbook is superb. Thanks.

    • Thank you Maria! So glad to hear your rosca turned out. And very pleased to hear you like our cookbook. Mil gracias! Please keep us posted on your pozole making.

  15. hi! so nice to have met you at Compleat Gourmet in Littleton, CO. you made these amazing tarts with mangoes (think) and said i could find the recipe online. of course, i cannot find it! i bought 3 cookbooks but you said the recipe was not in the book. would you help me by letting me know where i can find this recipe for the tarts? thank you very much!

    • Hi Rosa!

      Thanks so much for attending our book signing and for purchasing 3 cookbooks. Thank you for your support.

      The shortbread tart shells we shared that day was inspired by our bunuelos recipe on page 251 in our printed cookbook. But instead of bunuelos I purchased easy shortbread tart shells, filled them with dulce de leche, and topped them with mangos and strawberries. Super simple!

      You can pre-buy shells and dulce de leche or make our homemade cajeta:

      Hope that helps!

      Buen provecho!

  16. Having grown up in Grant County New Mexico I grew up eating and loving Mexican food. When I married I moved to El Paso and lived there 14 years total. My husband was stationed at Ft. Bliss and upon his retirement we moved to Louisiana, his home state. I am widowed now, but I still love my “Mexican” and still look for authentic recipes any time I can. I know I will enjoy your cookbook, shed a few tears from being homesick even after all these years, and remember many happy memories of Old El Paso.

    • Welcome Mona! Thank you so much for the sweet comment. Please keep in touch. We always love to hear from friends who love Mexican food — especially El Pasoans 😉

  17. Love your recipes this blog is great. Keep giving us more recipes.

  18. At this time it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  19. I surely love reading your blogs

  20. Just wondering what spices are used for the recipes so that I may buy them ahead.

  21. I love your champurrado recipe. I used cacao powder instead of traditional chocolates and cut down on sugars for diabetic friends. They loved the bitter cocoa taste. And it went great with the spicy savory tamales.
    We have one vegan in our family so I made a separate batch for him using almond milk. He loved it.

  22. Receipe for green posole
