With over 85 recipes, The Mexican Home Kitchen compiles the traditional home-style dishes enjoyed every day in Mexican households—with a great influence from the states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Veracruz, Puebla, Estado de México, and Yucatán—including soups, main and side dishes, salsas, desserts, and drinks.

For Mely Martínez, Mexican cooking has always been about family, community, and tradition. Born and raised in Tampico, Mely started helping in the kitchen at a very young age, since she was the oldest daughter of eight children, and spent summers at her grandmother’s farm in the state of Veracruz, where part of the daily activities included helping grind the corn to make masa. She started her popular blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, to share the recipes and memories of her home so that her son can someday recreate and share these dishes with his own family. Meanwhile, it has become the go-to source for those looking for authentic home-style Mexican cooking.

Recreate these favorite comfort foods using inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients:
  • Caldo de Pollo (Mexican chicken soup)
  • Tacos de Bistec (steak tacos)
  • Carnitas (tender, crispy pork)
  • Albondigas (Mexican meatballs)

Mely Martinez started her blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, in 2009 for her teenage son, hoping that someday he will use it to recreate the Mexican food his “mamá” made for the family.
