Sonia Mendez Garcia
In 2011, I was fortunate enough to be able to return to Monterrey (Mexico) to visit my family for a whole month. I spent many hours cooking with my tía Minerva in her kitchen. I was always amazed on how quickly she could prepare la comida at a moments notice. I learned more about toasting dried peppers, and how nuts are used often to create delicious sauces. This is my version of Pollo en Pipian.
