About this Cook
My name is Heidi. I am happily married and have 2 beautiful boys. I love to try new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food. I grew up eating out all of the time, so when I met my husband (who is from Mexico) I knew I needed to learn how to cook fast!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't have any from my childhood but I hope I am creating many for my children!
My cooking triumphs
I submitted my Chicken Tinga Tostadas to the local news channel for a contest and won a $800+ grill/smoker!!

Mexican Tinga
Ok, I have alot of things to add... We cook a chicken flavored white rice to put on the tostada before we pile the meat on, it's great. As for the chiles, I use 2-3 for 2 1/2 lbs. of shredded chicken. Be sure to use all of the adobo sauce from the can though. Sometimes I substitute the stewed tomatoes with tomato sauce or fresh, cooked tomatoes. We also top with queso fresco, shredded lettuce and sour cream (definately mexican). I always add 1 stick of cinn. while it is simmering. I pull it out when it's ready.
