MamásLatinas talks with Chef Aarón Sánchez (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez rules Mexican food in his various restaurants and brings his culinary expertise as a judge to Food Network's Chopped.

But what you may not know is that the Latin cuisine expert is a big supporter of home cooking and sharing meals with your family. As husband to musician Ife Mora and dad to 1-year-old Yuma, the chef is dedicated to keeping his roots alive and cooking for his new family.

Now he's talking to MamásLatinas in this exclusive video.

I've been a fan of Aarón Sánchez for years and I was really excited to get to talk to him about his food. Although he's been professionally cooking since he was 16, I got to talk to him about how fatherhood has changed his view on food--and got a fascinating response. Plus he shared his favorite go-to dish to make at home on a busy night (don't miss his response!) and what he thinks is the most underutilized ingredient in Latin cuisine--plus how you can easily get more of it at home.
