We'll tell you a little secret: the easiest way to a Latina's heart is through the stomach. Therefore, it stands to reason that the only real way to tell your amor of your affections is to cook! Play your spices right and you might just make 'em love you too. Yeah, pozole has that kind of power. Ready? Let's begin...
To a Latina, seeing a significant other huddled over a blender trying to recreate the family's sofrito recipe is the equivalent of seeing them hold puppies. Heck, we're swooning just thinking about it. If the recipe is top secret (and it may well be), make our go-to sofrito and put it in everything from black bean soup to on the Thanksgiving turkey.
If you wanna know what love is and want us to show you.... we'll show you a plate of tamales. But seriously, randomly show up with tamales. If masa filled with meat and/or cheese isn't the culinary equivalent of a heartfelt slow jam, we don't know what is.
Let Pozole Do The Talking
Actions speak louder than words... especially if those actions involve making someone a bowl of pozole blanco while s/he nurses a hangover. And frankly, if your corazón de melón was out late last night partying, then s/he probably won't want to hear your voice anyway so this is your best bet.
Straight Up Lie
Lastly, memorize the following sentence: "I think your [insert Latin dish here] is better than your mom's recipe". You will be lying, but s/he will love you for it.
