Aarti Sequeira prepares samosas, an Indian food favorite, stuffed with the flavors of Thanksgiving, while Carl Ruiz takes a Latin approach to his dish filling empanada pastries with cranberry and turkey.

It’s not a celebration without libations and dessert, so Aaron May pours a Portuguese-style sangria with cranberry and cinnamon to go with delicious handheld pumpkin and pecan pies. As the chefs add their own personal flair, each recipe prepared in Guy’s Ranch Kitchen can be recreated in anyone’s kitchen at home.  Fans can head to to browse behind-the-scenes photos of your favorite chefs, watch video extras and get the recipes.  Tell us which dishes are your favorite using #GuysRanchKitchen.
