First it was Eva Longoria, now Marcela kicks up her Saturday morning show, Mexican Made Easy, with Spike Mendelsohn, chef and owner of Good Stuff Eatery in DC, as well as a contestant on the upcoming season of The Next Iron Chef.

With help and inspiration from Spike, the dynamic duo joins forces to cook up several "American Classics a la Mexicana." They'll start with one of his specialties -- a burger -- but with a Mexican twist that will make your mouth water. Later, they'll indulge in Mexican Coffee Milkshakes, Cilantro French Fries and finally, end with a Dulce de Leche Banana Cream Pie. Watch Eater's exclusive clip for a sneak peek of tomorrow's show.
