If you’re rounding up Fourth of July recipes, here’s one you’ll want to try. It’s Nueva Cocina’s recipe for a Patriotic Party Platter. Share the spirit of independence Day with these two dip recipes from Nueva Cocina (www.nuevacocina.com), the first 100% natural Latin food brand.
I’ve tried just about all of the Nueva Cocina Taco Seasonings and they are out of this world! When I first tried them, I thought, “Eh. Taco Seasoning is taco seasoning. This won’t be any different.” Boy oh boy was I wrong on all counts. I can’t wait to try these seasonings in the recipes below because, as far as tacos go, I’m so spoiled to Nueva Cocina I can’t possibly buy any other seasoning.
1 packet of Nueva Cocina Chipotle Taco Seasoning
1 can of diced tomatoes (10 oz.)
4 plum tomatoes
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 whole lime
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro – optional
Salt to taste
Dice the plum tomatoes. Add chopped onion, olive oil, seasoning mix and the can of tomatoes. Mix together. Add cilantro and salt.
White Bean Dip
Nueva Cocina White Bean Soup Mix
1 packet of Taco Fresco Seasoning
7-8 ounces of grated Queso Blanco cheese (may be substituted for another white cheese of your liking)
1-1/2 cup of sour cream
5 tablespoons of olive oil (2 tablespoon for soup preparation and 3 tablespoons for the dip)
Follow the recipe on the soup, but only use two cups of water instead of three indicated on the package. Once cooled, smash the beans for a smooth consistency. Add the sour cream, 3 tablespoons of the olive, and the seasoning mix. Mix together. Add half of the cheese to the mixture and mix thoroughly. Top with remaining cheese.
Arrange the dips on a party platter with blue corn chips.
The Picadillo Seasoning Packet:
The Picadillo Seasoning packet is SO good you won’t be able to stop eating it. I found that out when I used it to make “Boca Burger Crumbles” tacos. I took a taste before filling the tacos and had to all but slap my own hand to make myself stay out of it!
This is absolutely Heavenly – whether you use it with ground beef, Boca Crumbles, or chicken. I hope you’ll click through and check out Nueva Cocina’s products. Trust me on this one, fellow lovers of great food, you’re going to fall as deeply in love with these seasonings as I am.
