Platillos con arroz, pescado y pollo

Save on prep time with a variety of Latin recipes that your family will enjoy

What will I make for dinner tonight? You may ask yourself that question every night, or a few times a week. But good news! With a little creativity and a few helpful tips, you’ll be able to make not one, but two Latin recipes with one main ingredient. And the best part? You’ll get out of the rut of preparing the same thing over and over and you won’t have to worry about what’s for dinner.

Latin recipes made with rice
Rice isn’t just a Latin ingredient, it’s an international one, but the truth is you’ll almost always find it in our Latin recipes. It’s a food that’s easy to prepare and combine with other ingredients. So take advantage of all its benefits by making two different rice dishes.

For example, boil four cups of rice. Once the rice is tender use two cups of the cooked rice to prepare this Rice & Black Bean Soup with Chorizo seasoned with the unique flavor of Knorr® Tomato Bouillon with Chicken flavor. With the other two cups of rice you can make a traditional Rice & Pigeon Peas dish. In less than an hour, you’ll have two complete rice-based meals.

Latin recipes made with fish
Fish is a great option if you’re looking for something that’s full of flavor. Plus, with a little creativity, fish as a main ingredient will be a welcome addition at the table.

With less than three pounds of fish filets you can make a juicy Cod with Paprika Sauce that boasts tender and delicious meat. With the rest of the three pounds of fish, make some Grilled Chipotle Fish Tacos dressed with Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise. This authentic dish is a perfect way to enjoy a taco Tuesday with your family.

Latin recipes made with chicken
Chicken is one of those foods that you’re used to preparing, and one that your family truly enjoys. So don’t waste any time and get started on these tasty recipes!

Start with about 4 or 5 pounds of chicken wings. With half of the chicken make Spicy Cilantro Chicken Wings bathed in a delicious marinade made with Country Crock® Calcium plus Vitamin D. Use the rest of the chicken to make Guava Chipotle Chicken Wings with Creamy Dipping Sauce. In just a short time you’ll have two tasty and creamy dishes that make finger licking hard to avoid.
