Must-Try Recipe: Richard Sandoval's Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla
Must-Try Recipe: Richard Sandoval's Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla
By Kelli Acciardo | 08/15/2014 - 12:45

This Richard Sandoval recipe from his Manhattan restaurant Maya will have you craving quesdillas every night.

When world-renowned chef Richard Sandoval invites you to his guacamole tasting festival at Manhattan's Maya restaurant, you go — even if one of the said guacs involves fried grasshoppers as a topping. That's right, when we sat down to sample Sandoval's avocado-based dips, we were presented with an unexpected addition. Turns out, it's pretty major (and crunchy).

While this insect alternative to the classic guacamole was impressive, we were equally satisfied by his Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla. So much so, we even stole the recipe for you to recreate at home (de nada). Try this tasty dish for yourself and reserve a table at Maya from now until September 30th, 2014 to partake in a festive culinary experience that features seven unique guacamoles, among them a fruit-centric Baja Guacamole, made with kiwi, jicama, strawberry, mango, mint, chile de arbol and lime, and a Pacifico Gaucamole, boasting grilled beet, roasted walnut, queso fresco, diced-orange and citrus-chipotle salt.

Ortega Seven Layer Dip
Aaron Sanchez's Super Easy Seven-Layer Dip Fiesta Flats
By Irina Gonzalez | 08/13/2014 - 11:35

Last week, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from chef Aarón Sánchez. Stopping by the Latina offices, he and the Ortega team shared news about an exciting new product, the Fiesta Flats. These fun taco shells are a great way to serve appetizers, and chef Aarón has developed some exciting new recipes for Ortega featuring the Fiesta Flats and the Fiesta Flat Minis. Naturally gluten-free, we loved the versatility of these shells, whether you're serving up some of your favorite ceviche or making them a part of your DIY taco bar. 

For our money, one of the best recipes was this super-easy take on a layered dip. For a simple but sure-to-wow-them appetizer, try Aarón Sánchez's Seven-Layer Dip Fiesta Flats!
