Chef Aarón Sánchez’s Slow Roasted Chipotle Chicken

Comer Juntos 



Family bonding over great food at the dinner table, what’s not to love?  I’m excited to help kick off this great program geared to bringing family together around the dinner table. Comer Juntos


“Comer Juntos” means ‘Eating Together’ in English, and I’m excited about showing parents that there’s real joy in instilling the practice of a family meal, not only on special occasions but any night of the week,” said Chef Aarón, one of the country’s leading contemporary Latin chefs. “Some of my favorite memories bring me back to cooking in the kitchen with my mom, it inspired me to become a chef and that’s a testament to the power of food and family.”

Chef Aarón


Chef Aarón Sánchez, star of Food Network’s “Chopped” and “Heat Seekers,” has teamed up with Sierra Mist to launch Comer Juntos: Una Tradición Natural,” a program that encourages families to unite around the dinner table to share their day over delicious Latin-inspired food and drinks.



The “Comer Juntos” program will include 10 original recipes by Chef Aarón that deliver big Latin flavors yet require little time in the kitchen, allowing families more time to spend together. From mouth-watering Slow Cooked Fiesta Pork to refreshing Raspberry Rumba, each recipe highlights how the crisp, clean lemon-lime taste of Sierra Mist Natural is the perfect complement or unexpected ingredient for Latin flavors.  Big, Bold flavors with less time in the kitchen, perfect for us busy moms!!


“Everything’s better in a tortilla.”  quote from Zarela Martinez, Chef Aarón mom


Last night we enjoyed the Chipotle chicken at our table.  Scooped into a tortilla the chicken was loaded with flavor. Enjoy watching Chef Aarón as he prepares Slow Roasted Chipotle Chicken. Scroll down for giveaway!
