Thanksgiving is not only about the food, but also about the experience and the moments you create around the dinner table. Latinos don't usually need a particular reason to plan a family get-together, but Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to combine some of our Latin flavors with an American custom.
In most homes, the Thanksgiving menu often features classic recipes like turkey and mashed potatoes. To help you host your perfect Día de las Gracias with a Latin twist, we asked Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza, owner and chef of Barrio Café in Phoenix and Barrio Queen in Scottsdale, AZ to share one of her favorite turkey recipes for the holiday.

With a few nationally-recognized restaurants under his belt, not to mention a slew of cookbooks, oh and did we mention all those shows on the Food Network (and a new one on Spanish-language network Utilisima), you would think that famed chef Aarón Sánchez would pretty much have a lock on the kitchen in his family for the holidays! But, you would be forgetting that his mother is the wonderful Zarela Martinez, also known as the inventor of upscale Mexican cuisine.

In the grand tradition of delicious Latin cooking, we wanted to share our very favorite way to prepare our Thanksgiving turkey. Sure, turkey cooking fads come and go—some choose to fry their birds whole, other go exotic with a Tandoori twist, but we just love the traditional pavochón!
A pavochón is marinated and cooked as if were lechón...in other words, absolutely delicious!
