Simple, easy, home-style cuisine that you'd find in just about any Mexican home, recreated for the American kitchen. This meal was my favorite "everyday" meal growing up in Mexico, and one I regularly make for my own family today. I am proud to share the steps so that you can enjoy it too. 

Hola Pati! I watched this episode and was amazed at learning about Chayote Squash - I'd never even heard of this before. Watching you make it with your beautiful presentation and explanations, I cannot wait to try it! Do you think I would have to go to a specialty store to find Chayote Squash? And your chicken looked so delicious, I could almost smell the aroma!!
I am such a big fan of yours. You articulate so beautifully as your words flow like music!! I even got my husband to watch this episode with me and he really enjoyed it as well!!
Thank you for all your great shows. I plan on learning so much more from you.

Happy Thanks Giving to you and your family.
Maeve Garcia

Hola Maeve, Thank you so very much for taking time to write me. I'm glad to hear you and your husband enjoy the show and am really grateful for your generous comments. You should be able to find Chayote Squash at any grocery store with a large produce section. I wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. All the best to you...
