I’m super happy and excited to share with all of you not only a great kid friendly recipe but also some of my childhood stories.
One of my favorites memories as a little girl is when I’m with my grandmother in the kitchen and she teaches me some of her most delicious recipes, In most of them, she used to use Cheerios.
This recipe, in particular, is an adaptation of something very similar that she used to make for us and I remember that especially on Dia del Niño, this dessert was and is my all time favorite.
We always found something to laugh about it and when all the family was together we celebrated the day with food, dessert, and music, what a wonderful memories.
Know as a mother I always try to pass on some of my recipes to my daughters, of course, my grandmother recipes too, but I also want for them to enjoy and created the most wonderful memories to share with their own families.
So, my clusters as I said before are an adaptation of my granny’s recipe, and my little one love to change the cereal every time we make it, sometimes we use Lucky Charms or Cocoa Puff and it turns in a different recipe every time.
If you want, you can add some nuts too and this super simple recipe will become a 5 or 6 recipes that you can make with your kiddos every time.
Sharing and creating is what a great Dia Del Niño is for me because I remember how I enjoy so much with my family, all the different ways we celebrate, all the food we eat and of course all the memories we preserve to this day. What a wonderful time it is indeed.
So join us to celebrate this day, go ahead make my recipe and let me know how you celebrate Dia Del Niño with your kids.
April is definitely a great month to start making delicious and fresh recipes, specially when the products are just around the corner. In my case I can find all kinds of fresh and local products in my supermarket.
This is just one of the reason why I love this weeks theme, fresh tomatoes are great on spring, and we can get all kinds, not only are they great for salads, but a good red sauce made with the best quality tomatoes is what everybody needs right how.
But of course this salad is perfect for an afternoon picnic in this amazing weather. Well, you know, I live in California so the weather is always the best, sorry to my friends dealing with snow right know.
But if you feel like channeling some Cali weather you can always make my salad, is fresh made with great ingredients and everybody will love it.

Using La Morena Products to created my recipes for this holy week is bean really a delicious and perfect idea.
I’m very lucky to have a great variety of stores where I can find these quality products like Northgate Gonzalez, this latino specialty store is where you can find all kinds of different La Morena products.
The authentic flavor and great variety of the products are what’s makes me keep using them in all my recipes. And you know the this is the time for Lent, so all the recipes we make are meat free, only fish and veggies are allowed, we take this time of reflection very serious.I recently bought a variety of jalapeños, chipotle, chipotle sauce, in these days of Easter or Cuaresma adding original and different flavors is what makes my meals even more delicious. This vegetable stew is a Sunday lunch in my house for Semana Santa, we love to make this healthy, pack in flavor meals, in my house is a most after church and once in a while, I change it up a little by adding pieces of fish.
You can also get your hands on this products by participating in this giveaway La Morena is giving away FIVE $200 gift cards. Just click below to enter. Good Luck!.
In a heavy bottom pan heat to medium heat, add oil, onions,tomato and bell pepper, cook for 3 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients including the chipotle sauce, ketchup, water, and tomato paste, low the heat cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Once ready add salt and pepper to taste, cilantro and let it cook for 3 more minutes, in the meantime toast some bread, I personally love bolillo bread, you can find this bread in latino specialty stores, but you can use any one of your preference.
Also if you like a lot of spice in your food, you can perfectly use the entire can of chipotle sauce.
I always want to offer and make easy, simple and healthy alternatives to my family, and this recipe is just the perfect example of why I love to cook.
My grandmother use to make this picadillo with lots of red meat, and I love it don’t get me wrong, but one day I decide to make it more simple and healthier for me and my family.
Just changing some ingredients and substituting the red meat with turkeywas enough to make the picadillo a great and healthy meal. I do love to cook with turkey and is present even in our hamburgers, yes I made turkey patties from scratch and is one of our favorite every Sunday.
Turkey is really good for you not only is a lean protein, in fact, turkey is a very versatile protein. It absorbs the flavor of spices and sauces providing a lean protein canvas for favorite recipes. In many cases, using turkey can mean a healthier dish with fewer calories.
So I did a turkey recipe remix of my grandmother’s recipe, and let me tell you everybody love it so much that it has become a favorite of us on Tuesday night, I know many of you will say that Tuesdays are for tacos, but in my house Tuesdays are for Turkey not only is super delicious but it is so versatile. I made my picadillo with ground turkey but you can also use turkey sausage, is equally delicious.
Heat a pot over medium heat, add onions and bell pepper, cook for 3 minutes, then add the ground turkey and cook for about 5 minutes, moving constantly.
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix until well combine, cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes over low heat. This slow cooking process is very important for the potatoes and turkey to absorb all the delicious flavors. Remember to check the salt before serving and you can always serve with a side of salad

This is my favorite time of the year and as always I can’t wait to share and create delicious recipes with my Latin twist. And this is a good time for you because I have the perfect recipe to make this to start celebrating Las Posadas. This is one of the biggest events during the holiday season, the entire community come to celebrate and share with everybody, you can’t miss the signing and food these days, it is amazing.
I remember how we all came to sing door by door and how we ended up in one door singing and at the end we enter the house, wich was normally my aunt’s house (she always had the best food) finish signing with our neighbours and family, to finish with a great meal, one of the best time of my childhood, we all came together as one big family to eat. 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.
Please enter the sweepstakes below, you can win fabulous prices, great opportunity to also share this recipe with your friends so they can enter too and win big.
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.
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.
