"These Guayaba Cheesecake Flautas are inspired by my Mexican-American heritage. I grew up with a bi-cultural family in Mexico City, and guayabas are very traditional this time of year. This recipe reminds me of my childhood growing up in Mexico with guayabas and Ponche Navideño. The cheesecake filling, salted caramel, spices, pomegranates, and guayabas become the best combination of flavors of Mexico and the United States." - @chefvanessamusi In the season of remembrance, we were so grateful to spend time in the kitchen with Chef Vanessa talking about nostalgic holiday recipes! The holidays can bring back memories of home, loved ones, and childhood, but one thing we always remember is the delicious food! We believe food is one extra special way to remember and connect with loved ones near, far, and those who are always in our hearts.
Our sources tell us that these Buñuelo Brownies are the one thing Santa loves more than chocolate chip cookies! (Who are we to be nonbelievers? 😉) These brownies bring back childhood memories of licking the brownie bowl when our mom wasn’t looking, smelling the sweet aroma of chocolate as it filled our home, and most of all, enjoying buñuelos and sweets while gathered around the tv for holiday movies! And if yours don't last until Santa comes? Take it from us—just say "Siete Claus got to them first!"
It’s hard to convince a little one to choose broccoli over macaroni or carrots over chicken nuggets. (We know this because we've all been that "little one.") But, we’ve taken our experience and memories of hiding our peas and carrots in our napkins under the dining table and then sneakily dropping them for scavenging pets to eat the evidence... and created our own yummy solution! Our Chicken Veggie Nuggets are breaded in our Grain Free Sea Salt Tortilla Chips, look like traditional chicken nuggets, AND they satisfy a parent’s wish for their children to simply eat their vegetables!
When the weather gets cooler, our family loves to have an assortment of warm tamales at the table—from beef and chicken filled to mole and beans—especially around the holidays! There’s nothing quite like unwrapping a tamal, watching the steam rise out, and cutting into that first bite. We’ve made these with Green and Red Enchilada Sauce, chicken, and lots of love!
If you ask our dad about his favorite foods, the list is short but always includes: quesadillas, steak, and milanesa (always milanesa!) This recipe was inspired by his (and our own) love for milanesa—a nostalgic food our family often enjoyed together. We knew dinner would be extra delicious on the days our mom chose to make milanesa. Here, we’ve taken this tasty dish and wrapped it up in a Grain Free Burrito Sized Tortilla: Grain Free Milanesa Wraps!
If you’ve tried paella, you know two of the best (and most flavorful) parts about it are the crispy bottom part of the dish, and the seemingly endless amounts of servings in the large pan. But, if you haven’t tried paella, we are so excited for you to give ours a try. Behold! A chorizo-seasoned interpretation of a dynamic Spanish dish: Tex Mex Shrimp Paella!
Every holiday season, our family serves an assortment of empanadas, both savory and sweet! We spend hours lined up in the kitchen, rolling out the dough, scooping in different fillings, and pressing each one closed with forks. It’s a time to gather together and make flakey and delicious treats with fillings that range from chorizo to beans, and all the way to apples and peaches! Empanadas are our family’s holiday love language. So, we couldn't be happier to share our recipe for grain free Sweet Potato Empanadas with you.
We like to joke that once our Grain Free Tortillas are heated, they’re ready to “wrap ‘n roll,” like the punchline of dad joke from the eighties. Only, it’s really not a joke! Whether you’re craving spring rolls, egg rolls, pizza rolls, or pita wraps, our tortillas are ready to rise to the occasion. Or, if you’re in the mood to fold instead of roll, try making sweet or savory crepes!
Looking to add a little crunch to your lunch? Follow-up question: how much crunch would you bread your lunch-munch if a lunch-munch could crunch-crunch? No matter how you answered, if this sounds like something you’d want to add to your fish, chicken, tomatillos, or cauliflower to make a delicious “breaded” version, simply bake our Grain Free Tortillas, crumble into a texture and size of your choosing, and coat!
Add this recipe to the list of dips we can’t get enough of—guacamole, queso, salsa, ranch, spinach artichoke, and now, Guajillo Hummus. We’ve paired ours with fried and seasoned pieces of our Grain Free Chickpea Flour Tortillas as crisps for dipping! Just the right amount of spice for a rich flavor that cannot be beat!
By now, you may know that our family loves a good carne asada (both the taco filling and the family gathering). We cherish any opportunity to gather with our loved ones around great food and drink. At our family carne asadas, you’ll always find the grill covered in fajita, an assortment of proteins, veggies, and of course, ribs! Now, ribs flavored with Carnitas Seasoning Slow Cooker Spice? That’s a grill master sensation!
Our familia believes that good things comes in all different shapes and sizes. For instance, our Grain Free Tortillas as crunchy croutons in salads, or strips in soup! Whether you like them small, square, thick, or tall, this method is all about adding another dimension to your meal, without any effort.
These paletas take us back to summer days—sitting by the pool, under the sun, with our childhood friends and neighbors. There’s nothing like a refreshing Fresas con Crema Paleta on a warm summer day! Might we suggest topping yours with some melted chocolate and our Grain Free Churro Strips?
We’ve always loved carnitas, and we’ve always (always!) loved flautas. Inspired by the way our Grandma Campos created many carnitas-style dishes, and golden-standard flautas, we thought, why not combine the two? Better yet, we wanted to make it vegan so that everyone can enjoy the savory flavors of carnitas rolled up in a crunchy tortilla! We hope this Spaghetti Squash Carnitas Flautas recipe brings you and yours together and makes everyone feel welcome and included at the table.
