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.
