All In for Albóndingas

Did you know the humble little meatball has a starring role in the Mexican kitchen? In this episode, Rick sees traditional versions of albóndingas in the old-school Bar Mancera and modern versions in hipster haven Cicatriz. There's even a meatball torta thrown in for good measure. And because sometimes a "best-ever" recipe needs to be something that gets to the table quickly, Rick makes crowd-pleasing versions suitable for weeknight cooking.

Mole Is Mexico's Mother Sauce

San Pedro Atocpan is a small town that produces some 60 percent of the mole eaten in all of Mexico, and Rick is pretty much the perfect tour guide to show us around. We'll see mole in its many mouthwatering forms, including the elegant mole madre at Enrique Olvera's Pujol. In his Mexico City kitchen, Rick leads a lesson in red mole making. In Chicago, he makes a herbacious mole verde with fish that will make you the hero of the kitchen.
