Hi! I’m Mely Martínez, a Mexican school teacher, home cook and food blogger. I moved to the United Stated about 10 years ago, after living in Mexico my whole life. Now I love to share home-style recipes of authentic Mexican Food.

Triple Pepper Pork Stew

Made with three different kinds of dried peppers, this spicy, flavorful pork stew is based the Mexican recipe for guisado a los tres chiles and is best served with beans, rice or tortillas.


Mexican Red Hot Sauce

In Mexico, bottled hot sauce is used everyday to spice up street fare such as potato chips, fruit cocktails, popcorn, and other fried foods sold as snacks in plastic bags. It is also used in some seafood cocktail preparations and alcoholic drinks.


Desayuno Norteño: A Mexican Breakfast

Here in Nuevo León we have very unique dishes and customs. The key is to always try and use local and regional ingredients to prepare the recipes, as that gives them a particular authenticity and value. Out of the three meals we make everyday, breakfast is the most important one, for it’s the one that we commence our day with.


Red Chile Morita Salsa

There are many ways to use this Mexican salsa macha – on BBQ, something grilled, fried, just about anything you want to add a bit of rich, thick spice to really. If this is not on your plate, you’re losing.
