Flavor-Packed Recipes

Hi! We’re Emily and Rudy, a wife and husband cooking duo!

After the success of cookbook #1, The Art of Great Cooking with Your Instant Pot®, which ranked #4 in Amazon’s Top 10 New Releases in Gluten Free Recipes, we’re so excited to bring you the flavors of Mexico at home with minimal effort and time by harnessing the power of your Instant Pot®.

We share 80 family recipes for making the most popular Mexican dishes the quick and easy way. With Rudy’s deep-rooted Mexican heritage and former chef experience and my experience as a busy mom and food blogger, this cookbook brings you the best of both worlds: authenticity and practicality.

We live in Northern California. Our daily life is mixed with typical chaos, work work work, never-ending dishes and laundry, homeschooling for our Tiny Love, public Waldorf school and homework for Little Love, a little rest for me if I can since my body is working hard growing baby #3, a kitchen that almost always has dishes, cutting boards and kitchen tools out all over the counters because we make real food for every meal, plus all the normal household chores and other things … that being said, we are always looking for ways to get our meals on the table faster.


Everyone has super busy schedules and not a lot of time to prepare and fuss over meals throughout the day. We all know that TIME IS PRECIOUS!

We get it, we’re busy working parents living the same daily lives as most people. We’re here to share our love and passion for real food Mexican cooking with you!

If you’re like most people with a busy schedule and short on time to cook, then Amazing Mexican Favorites with Your Instant Pot® is for you!

Just because “busy” is the norm, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy healthy, super tasty, festive, authentic Mexican food cooked at home!!!

It’s okay to skip the take-out from your local Mexican restaurant or taqueria, because cooking real food at home doesn’t have to be hard or complicated! It’s so easy when you use your Instant Pot®!

When you cook with your Instant Pot®, you’ll get wholesome, flavor-packed Mexican food on the table faster and you’ll spend less time in the kitchen!
