Episode 312: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Pati invites a few of her girlfriends over for a much needed “girls’ night in.” But these girls are here to GRILL! Grilling isn’t just a guy thing — Pati’s got a great outdoor grill, and she’s gonna put it to work by cooking up a mouth-watering menu of Mexican food with a BBQ twist. One of Pati’s sisters shows up to help her mix some drinks, too!

  1. Great show, just watched it on PBS Austin KLRU. Pati, I’ve observed you and the growth of the show over the years, it’s a favorite. I really appreciate the travel and culture mixture; sharing who, how, when and where these foods originate.


    1. Thanks so much Brian, love to read that you enjoy the Show. New season is premiering the first week of October, stay tuned!

  2. Cannot find recipe for drink you made with your older sister while the ladies sat at the picnic table with your mango chunk dip. The glasses were ringed with salt, chili powder and one other item, you had grapefruit soda other liquid ingredients and was soft pink in color. You were bbq ribs w/honey chipotle sauce,romaine lettece and red bell peppers. HELP! Want to try that drink… Thank you for your show.

  3. I saw what I thought was the episode Girls just Wanna Have fun. I thought you did strawberries with Green Tabasco and Honey. where do I find that recipe?

    I love the recipes which combine classical ‘Mexican’ with the Asian, French and other influences.

      1. I must have imagined this recipe. I was sure you had prepared some strawberries with a little green chile sauce (Tabasco). As I frequently season strawberries with balsamic vinegar, I was intrigued. I am getting ready to do a post-wedding brunch — and thought those with eggs benedict and a mimosa flavored with lime and fresh orange juice would be perfect. I have looked at the web and found nothing either. So I guess I will just experiment. I think strawberries, green chile sauce, perhaps some melon (or mango) a bit of lime and maybe a touch of honey might be fun. I also wonder, if tomatilloes might not add a crunchy texture.

  4. Dear Pati. Me and my wife just watched your girl’s night in episode and are trying to figure out what was on the fish that you had at the restaruant in Mexico. Thank you, Cyrus.

  5. Pati,

  6. Pati,

  7. Pati, I just caught my first show of yours on PBS. Love your passion for great food and will be watching more shows as they air ! Just wondering if you have the recipe for the ancho chile sauce you made in the jar on your website somewhere ? Jim
