These over-the-top Shrimp Tacos are extra-saucy and extra-cheesy

Right before the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States, I was making my way back from the northern Mexican state of Sonora, where I was filming my public-television series, “Pati’s Mexican Table.”

Sonora is known as mainly a cattle state, so I was surprised to find there some of the best shrimp tacos I have ever had.

For years, I taught my sons to cook. Now, I’m learning from them.

As I walk into our kitchen, I see Juju looking determined. Tonight is the night for orange chicken. My 14-year-old has taken out the ingredients he needs and is following a recipe, step by step, from someone I have never heard of, who has a gazillion followers on YouTube and whose instructions, to me, sound kind of absurd.
