Recipes from Treasures of the Mexican Table by Pati Jinich

An in-person group of 18, including a few new faces, enjoyed recipes from this book in Oct 2022! The cookbook features lots of peppers, and a few hard-to-find ingredients.

Dressed-Up Chicken Soup (Kristine Hodlin)

Potato & Poblano Sopes (Mimi Graham)

Tamales with Fresh Corn, Cheese, & Green Chile (Aonghus O'Nia)

The chef recommends that you watch the author's Youtube video, which does a great job of visually explaining how to fold the tamales.

Served (and pictured with) the Coconut Shrimp.
