Pomegranate Guacamole
Tailgating? Mix Up This Punchy Pomegranate Guacamole!
By Amanda Cargill | 09/27/2014 - 12:00

When you think of pomegranate seeds, you probably don't think of guacamole. The former are typically associated with Mexican Independence Day (Chiles en Nogada) and Thanksgiving (salads, sweets, and centerpieces). In this guacamole recipe, however, pomegranate seeds step into the spotlight as the bright, crunchy contrast to one of Mexico's most beloved snacks.

The perfect taco topping and tailgating treat - no football party is complete without guacamole - this recipe is as easy to mix up as it is to gobble up. Try it today and see if you don't like it as much as we do!

Ortega Black Bean Cemitas with Cheese and Salsa
Say "Sí" to Aaron Sanchez's Black Bean Cemitas!
By Amanda Cargill | 09/26/2014 - 17:14

Busy? Overworked? Strapped for time and wondering what new recipe you can make for dinner that a) takes less than 15 minutes; b) doesn't require multiple visits to the supermercado; and c) your family will eat without grimacing? Yea, we know, and you're not alone.  

It's for all of the above reasons that these Black Bean Cemitas with cheese and salsa are a perfect midweek meal. Not only is the recipe the brainchild of celeb Latino chef Aaron Sanchez (so you know it's good), but it requires only basic ingredients - things you likely have on hand - and a few Ortega products that you can pick up in a single swish down the Latin foods aisle at your grocery store. Easy, fast, delicious...that's how we roll.

Chimichurri Dip
Chimichurri Dip Recipe: Your Fave Argentine Steak Sauce is Now a Snack!
By Amanda Cargill | 09/15/2014 - 16:55

Ever met anyone that dislikes chimichurri sauce? Neither have we. Cilantro, garlic, olive oil... What's not to love? The thing, though, with chimichurri sauce is that - surprise! - it's a sauce, which means it's never served solo, and therefore, can never be consumed by the spoonful à la chips and salsa or chips and guac.
 
You can, however, consume this chimichurri dip by the spoonful. (Trust us, it's that good.) It's easy to make, can be prepared in advance - of holiday parties, family gatherings, and tailgating - and is equally delicious when mixed as below or using healthier ingredients like reduced-fat mayo and light sour cream. Try it tonight. You'll thank us tomorrow.

By Kelli Acciardo | 09/11/2014 - 16:14

Qsine is one cruise ship restaurant that's seriously loco — in the best way possible. The idea behind the whimsical venue aboard Celebrity Cruises, is to take you on a culinary journey that delivers elements of surprise and delight.
