Before you go

Join our community to help deliver a better food future for all.


  The SDG2 Advocacy Hub facilitates the Chefs' Manifesto, a community of 1100+ chefs from 90 countries, equipped with a simple set of actions to drive progress against the food issues that matter most of them. We believe chefs can be powerful advocates for a better food future - inspiring people to make changes in their kitchens and communities and empowering them to call on governments and companies to also play their part. As chefs bridge the gap between farm and fork, the Chefs' Manifesto empowers chefs with a framework tied to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.     

Gain inspiration from Texas, Baja California, and, of course, northern Mexico.

What you'll learn

Our first recipe will be tostadas with ceviche. You will learn that seafood is one of the best proteins we can choose – not only for its health benefits, but also for its low environmental impact.

We’ll continue with a light vegetable soup that’s ideal for summer, and pair it with a flour tortilla stuffed with spicy cheese and topped with a variation of salsa verde.

We have two main course options: meat or fish. The first option consists of a grilled marbled cut of meat with moros y cristianos (rice and beans) and avocado and corn relish to round off this hearty dish. The second option is Veracruz style, which adds vegetables and a barley pilaf (a healthy alternative to the classic rice).

Who is it for?

This course is for anyone interested in Tex-Mex cuisine, which is a sustainable food system oriented around good health.

No matter what level you are, Mary Sue makes this course entertaining and easy to understand. You will finish this online course looking forward to experimenting in the kitchen.

What you’ll need

  • Tortilla press
  • Grill or broiler
