We love dip, all kinds of dip! Guac, queso, spinach & artichoke, ranch, buffalo chicken—you get the gist! But we had an idea: sweet dip! And then we had another idea: sweet dip WITH our Grain Free Churro Strips. Several ideas later (what can we say? We’ve got a lot of ideas!), we created a recipe for Hazelnut Dip with Churros. You won’t be disappointed!
Imagine: you're sitting on the couch with Mexican Hot Chocolate in hand, watching snow fall outside, and kicking your feet (clad in your favorite fuzzy socks, of course) up near the crackling fireplace. You take a sip of your creamy Mexican Hot Chocolate and ahhhh, yes..tastes like happy, happy holidays!
"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!"
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.
