To us, this was a special time, I had to spend some time helping my aunt with the food, sharing some laughs with my cousins and eating a lot, of course as a Hispanic for us there is not better time than the holiday season, we enjoy every single moment to the max, and now I can share all my memories and some dishes with my daughter, I’m sure they would do the same with their kids too.

And of course to make a huge plate of food you need good quality products, and I have the best by my side, just as La Morena® and Knorr®, as many of you already know, these products bring the flavor of your food to another level. As always my go to place to find and buy my favorite products is Walmart and you must go to the Hispanic aisle, where you can find the products I’m using today in my recipe.

Because this time of the year is so busy, I make the recipe simple and easy to follow, with ingredients that we all have on hand, and of course other products that as I told you before you can find at your local Walmart.
And of course, this rice is just perfect not only for this special occasion but you can easily make it as an easy dinner for a large gathering on a different occasion.

vivalamorena-liveforflavor-products-basicndelicious

My secret to the recipe? You ask, using Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon Granulated Bouillon to make the broth for the rice and the sauce and to add a different kick to the sauce also, I added some La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, I love how subtle the spicy flavor is in my sauce not overpowering thanks to the chipotle peppers.

My recipe is simple but big on flavor and you will find it so easy to make that I just want to read all the comments you’ll have for me at the end.

Pasta Vegetariana #40DaysofFlavor #Clamato #Ad

Si ustedes se han preguntado de qué forma celebramos los Hispanos la cuaresma todos les contestaremos que es diferente en cada familia.  En mi caso personal, recuerdo que desde pequeña nos enseñaron a respetar este tiempo, ya que el mismo es sagrado y no debemos por nada ofender las costumbres que heredamos.

#clamato ingredients

Además no pueden faltar las noches en familia compartiendo las más deliciosas comidas, las cuales están hechas a base de vegetales o mariscos. Esto se debe, no sé si ustedes saben, a que en este tiempo de meditación y convivencia familiar se acostumbra a no consumir ningún tipo de carne. Recuerdo como mi abuela paterna nos preparaba deliciosos platillos sin carne; para nosotros como niños era impresionante saber que algo tan simple era increíblemente delicioso.

clamato-waltmart #40daysofflavor

También recuerdo que entre las cosas que hacía mi abuela con mi tía, me encantaban las pastas y las empanaditas dulces, ¡qué ricas! Esa era para mí una de las mejores partes de estas celebraciones.

Por supuesto que no podía faltar el plato estrella, el que a todos en la familia les encantaba y por el cual los nietos siempre hacíamos fila con un plato en la mano para no perdernos la oportunidad de comer.

Esta delicia, que mi tía llamaba ‘la pasta con todo’ y mi abuela le decía ‘fideos vegetarianos’, tenía la particularidad de que se preparaba con cualquier cosa que hubiera en la alacena. En esa época,  durante la cuaresma y semana santa el comercio no abría, así que mi abuela y mi tía tenían que jugárselas con lo que tuvieran en la casa.

#clamato ingredients taza

Tan sencilla y humilde como muchos de los platos que se preparan en esta época, pero no deja de ser deliciosa, especialmente porque es hecha con uno de los ingredientes estrellas: CLAMATO. Este coctel de tomate que le da un delicioso y único sabor a esta salsa, sin dejar de lado el valor tradicional que tiene.

#clamato Salsa-preparacion

Una de las cosas que me encantan es que ahora podemos ir y conseguirlo a cualquier hora y cualquier día, y en uno de mis lugares favoritos para comprar, Walmart, esta es una gran ventaja sobre todo en este época.

Esta es una de mis recetas favoritas durante la cuaresma; déjame saber cual es la tuya en un comentario.

Tortas De Atún (Tuna Fritters) #MeGustaConLeche #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of the California Milk Processor Board. The opinions and text are all mine.

tortas de atun tomaleche

The other day I was starring at my fridge trying to find something to complement some tuna fritters leftovers from the other night, it came to my attention a gallon of cold milk, that was the moment I decided to drink my milk with tuna fritters, no wait, to eat my tuna fritters with a glass of milk.

And I know it sounds weird, but there is nothing more delicious in the world than a glass of cold milk, and I love warm milk too, specially when I can’t sleep, but when is hot outside, nothing is better than cold milk.

Definitely, it was the best decision ever, my tuna fritters taste super delicious with the milk, it was unbelievable, never since I started making this recipe image that milk was the secret complement to my fritters and with the combination of flavors in my mouth I couldn’t wait to try more and more different savory foods and see what new flavors I was missing.

tortas de atun

Because I was so surprise, that day I made the fritters, I will give you the recipe soon, and serve a glass of milk to my family and of course the dinner, everybody looked at me with a funny look, like saying that I was crazy or something, but I told them “Dare to try the foods you love with milk” and you will notice the difference immediately; Everybody was so surprise and happy and of course I was too.

I mean we love milk, we drink milk every single day, but to paired the milk with our favorite foods was a first time for all of us, specially my husband, he would never and I mean never dare to try something so savory and different with milk.

ingredients-tortas

You can make Milk a tasty “must have” for every meal.“Yum! I had no idea Milk tasted so good with so many different kinds of foods! I wonder what else it’ll go 
well with?”

Here are some videos you can enjoy, and see what else go well with milk.

And use the #MeGustaConLeche to share pictures of your favorite foods paired with milk.
