Episode 113: Wrapped Treats

Mexicans have been wrapping and cooking food in leaves for a long time, and this episode will look at the reasons why. It will also share three scrumptious dishes you can make in your own kitchen with the wrapping method and with three different kids of wrappers! We’ll also look at some shortcuts and tips for cooking wrapped foods in your own kitchen, as opposed to the traditional method of digging a pit or steaming them in an enormous pot.

  1. Hi Pati,
    I was wondering if you could tell me and help me find a recipe for Chapparado?It has mexican chocolate,masa etc.and it is served hot…. My mother tells me that it is good for stomaches or just for drinking..I would appreciate the help..
    Thank You, Melinda

  2. Thanks Pati, we look forward to it. I am part of a family that has deep and abiding respect for traditional, true Mexican cooking and they are fast to point out that you know your stuff very well. And when you set your viewers straight about bottled lime juice, it was hilarious! Thanks again and take care. You have a lot of fans in the Maldonados of southern California 🙂

  3. Hi Pati! Are any more episodes forthcoming? We DVR’d the entire season but haven’t seen any more in months. Your personality, humor, and warmth pop out of the screen and make this a great and fun show. My family really misses seeing you. Take care and God bless.

  4. Good day and GOD Bless Patti! This recipe is awesome, I didnt know tamales could be made a “sweet treat”. I used walnuts because I didnt have pecans. It was delicious. Thank You and keep bringing us these glorious meals.
