What's neat about Nicole and La Cocinera con Prisa is that her kitchen is a truly global one, reflective of the real culinary trends in Mexico. With influences ranging from German to Chinese, don't be surprised to find fantastic recipes for anything from Chicken Enfrijoladas to Stir Fried Beef & Bamboo! In fact, one of Nicole's favorite recipes is her Asian-inspired Sesame Noodles with Mushrooms.

"My recipes are simple, quick, but delicious! I'm focused on getting the best out of as few ingredients as possible." - Nicole, of La Cocinera con Prisa
From her kitchen in Mexico, Nicole has created a collection of simple, quick dishes that will inspire anyone to tackle a new recipe at home. She challenges herself by using limited ingredients in each of her recipes and focusing on making the most of the flavors offered by each. Because of that, it's no wonder that spices are such a key part of her dishes, whether it's the chili pepper so crucial to Mexican cuisine or an entire range of exotic aromatics, from curry powder to middle eastern Za'atar!
