By now, it's a cliché that women are the bulwark of every Mexican man's life, that hombres are helpless without them. And nowhere is this more evident than in men's expectations that the women they're with be good cooks, just like their tías, mamis, and abuelitas. Of course, all of this is heteronormative bullshit, but might as well take on this stereotype in the video version of my ¡Ask a Mexican! column.
