Recipes from Today’s Show: Weekend Cook

Published by

Today on MHTV: Mexican food is a Quinn family favorite so today a I’m cooking up a feast. In order to make really down-home Mexican food, you really have to put the time in. The husks need a good soak and then, I make the tamale dough; it’s the perfect “weekend kitchen project” so I’m making Tamales two ways: Cheesey Jalapeño and Shredded Chicken. Blistered tomatillos, jalapeños and onions make Salsa Verde to top the tamales and and colorful fruits are blended with a bit of sugar and lime create a refreshing Aqua Frescas to drink.

Recipes from this Episode:

Cheese and Jalapeno Tamales

Salsa Verde

Agua Fresca
