Mérida, Yucatán, (July 21, 2021).- On June 4th, the kitchen of the “Miguel Alemán” house of the “Los Pinos” Cultural Complex in Mexico City, was opened to receive chefs and cooks from all over the country, including the traditional cook from Chichimilá municipality, Addi María Ay Che, who was one of the five finalists in the contest What does the homeland taste like?
In the house of “Los Pinos”, the ten finalist recipes were recreated, so the jury tasted the dishes and deliberated to choose the winners.

The five finalist recipes were ‘Tlatonile de Colorines’ from Guerrero State; ‘Mole de Calpan’ from Puebla; ‘Xincoyote stuffed with escamoles (worms) and palm flower in corn husk’ from Hidalgo; ‘Butler lunch or invitation’ from Oaxaca and the ‘Kaaxil sikil’ of the Puc Ay family from Chichimilá, Yucatán.
Doña Addi’s family, the Puc Ay family from Chichimilá, proudly represented Yucatán in the competition for first place during the final of the gastronomic contest and after the award ceremony, the valuable recipe has been made known to the public.
Traditional recipe 100% Yucatecan
Doña Addi was nominated with the dish ‘sikil Kaaxil’ or ‘Chicken nugget’, which is made with pumpkin seed. Said seed is ground by hand fresh from the stove and then squeezed to extract its oil and form meatballs.
Subsequently, the meatballs are incorporated into a broth seasoned with that obtained fat and other ingredients. In this task, several members of the family participate.
