In our latest podcast episode, I got to chat with Yvette Marquez all about Mexican food. As a second generation Mexican-American, she has been sharing cherished family Mexican recipes since 2010 on her food blog Muy Bueno Cooking, which has been turned into its own cookbook. 


I love Mexican food but like all ethnic cuisines, it can feel a bit intimidating when you’re getting started. There are ingredients you’ve never heard of, a new set of pantry staples to get to know, and new techniques that might not feel familiar.


So in this episode, I asked Yvette to break it all down for us and make Mexican cooking totally approachable and accessible. You’ll learn all about:


  1. Peppers -- the difference between dried and fresh, plus which ones you need for simple sauces
  2. Sauces -- basic master sauces that will help you create a wide variety of Mexican dishes
  3. Plus other Mexican staples like spices, beans, tortillas, and cuts of meat.
