Latina foodies abound. After all, we love food. La comida es vida y punto (food is life). Without it we can’t survive and those of us who are really lucky, can eat food not just to survive. By that I mean that we can create meals that satiate hunger as well as bring pleasure; we can also use food as a way to explore other cultures and share our own. Some Latinas have taken their love of food to a different level, and provide us with constant mouthwatering inspiration.
I invite you to salivate over and be inspired by the following top Latina foodie Instagram accounts.
11 Latina Foodies You Should be Following
It’s #ModernPressureCookingMonday, lovely people! I share with you a behind-the-scenes of our weeklong photo shoot…where the über talented @BibiFood brought my food to life and the crazy fun @kengoodmanphoto captured the vibe forever. Here I am making us some oxtail on our last day… after 65% of the book was photographed and the studio became my living room again. We’d had so much food over the course of 5 days that one more dish — for the second time — was very much appropriate. You know… to end a very long week on a delicious note! "Modern Pressure Cooking" is available online and in stores nationwide. Check it out on Amazon, Barnes & Noble's, and other retailers.

One of my all-time favorite #dinner ideas: #tacos dorados (AKA #flautas). My family always seems to request these when I visit and they're my mom's favorite too. I made these when I was visiting my sister a while back. I just love her placemats under the #colorful #fiestaware! PRO TIP: I always use a little sprinkle of cheese to keep the chicken moist on the inside. Topped with crema, shredded lettuce, #cotija and #salsa, you really can't go wrong!

Since many give up other types of meat, seafood dishes are abundant in Mexico during #Lent, such as Camarones al Tequila… In my version, shrimp are sautéed in garlic and butter until just cooked through and finished in a Mexican cream sauce with La Costeña chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. A douse of tequila is optional. #recipeoftheweek @mexico.rico
