Baked Steak Taquitos with Corn and HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa

I made these Baked Steak Taquitos for my family using some leftover steak and HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa. We prefer flour tortillas to corn, but I did stuff the taquitos with leftover roasted corn, green onions, cilantro and cheese.

Lo Que Nos Hace Fuertes #FuertesconLeche

It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate better at school.  Milk contains nine essential nutrients in each glass and is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give your kids a natural source of high-quality protein. You can pair your breakfast with a glass of milk for 8 grams of high-quality protein per 8 ounce glass or mix it into your favorite smoothie, overnight oats or breakfast recipe. Kids already love milk, so including it as part of a protein rich breakfast can be easy. Don't believe me? Check out some of these delicious recipe our Influencers created with milk to make us #FuertesConLeche.

Lemon Pancakes with Berry Compote

Mama Latina Tips

Giving the boys a breakfast with protein, I think, is the best way to start their day. I can see they have the energy they need and will run off to school contented and ready to learn. Of course, breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as a glass of milk with toast (each 8oz glass of milk has 9 essential nutrients including protein), or oatmeal made with milk, or a fruit licuado.

Easy Breakfast Frittata

Kinda Silly Mommy

It's a big responsibility as a parent to make sure that our little ones get the nutrients that their growing bodies need. Because, let's face it. If it were up to them, they would live off of a diet of cheddar fish and fruit snacks. It's important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast.  Did you know that milk has 9 essential nutrients in each glass? Milk is a natural source of high-quality protein and it doesn't even need to be served in a glass. It's so easy to add it to your meals, especially since you always have milk on hand.

Eggless Orange Blueberry Corn Bread

Mommy's Home Cooking

My kids really really really like milk. Since they wake up in the morning the first thing they ask for is a cup of warm milk. I love that they do because I know that It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Plus, studies show eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate at school. With 9 essential nutrients in each glass, milk is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give my kids a natural source of high-quality protein – plus other nutrients they need.

"Después de una práctica o juego intenso, los estudios sugieren que la leche de chocolate baja en grasa, como Nesquik, puede contener la proporción ideal 3: 1 de carbohidratos-a-proteína que puede ayudar a restaurar los músculos. Este equilibrio adecuado proporciona a tu atleta con el alimento que necesita después de un partido duro."

"Al llevar las meriendas, recordemos que estas deben ser unas que no se dañen por el calor y que se mantengan frescas durante el tiempo que los niños estén jugando. Llevar una hielera es una opción para mantener el Nesquik frío y listo para cuando sea la hora de tomar."

The Benefits of Soybean Oil In Everyday Cooking

Soybean oil is one of the most versatile ingredients in your pantry. Though you may not realize it, there’s a good chance soybean oil is part of your cooking routine. In fact, soybean oil accounts for approximately 55% of vegetable oil used in U.S. homes! Just check the ingredients label to be sure.  Some of our #LatinaBloggers share their #SoyParaSoy recipes, stories and all the benefits of using this oil. Flourless Choconut Cake - #SoyParaSoy

From Brazil to You

"And not only that… unsweetened cocoa powder and dark chocolate (loaded with nutrients and antioxidants) combined with soybean oil make this cake a healthy yet scrumptious dessert."

Baked Tostones with Guasacaca Sauce - #SoyParaSoy

Living Sweet Moments

"Both dishes are made with soybean oil. One of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen. And guess what? A lot of you already have it inside your cupboard."

Chicken and Linguica Taquitos Dorados Recipe - #SoyParaSoy

Mama Latina Tips

"I like to crisp them up using soybean oil. It’s a great choice because it has the benefit of a very clean, neutral flavor, and doesn’t compromise the taste of traditional dishes. Also, it doesn’t hurt that soybean oil is a great source of vitamin E and has 0 grams of trans fats per serving."

Beer Battered Cauliflower Tacos - #SoyParaSoy

Adriana's Best Recipes

"In fact my mom loved soybean oil she was always looking for ways to offer meals that were better for us and soybean oil is a good option since it contains 0g trans fats per serving, serves as a principal source of  omega‐3s which can help reduce blood  pressure and prevent heart disease."

Share Your Label - #SoyParaSoy

Mommyhood's Diary

"The United Soybean Board invites you to check your label and upload a photo of your oil ingredients label highlighting its soybean oil content for a chance to win $100 gift cards.  Visit http://bit.ly/ShareYourLabel to share your labels."

 "I’ve used Barilla’s fideo cut in this recipe, which is a cut familiar to any Mexican or Mexican-American family—it’s the same cut used in sopa de fideo, a tomato broth soup with noodles. Barilla’s superior quality pasta means your fideo won’t stick or clump, and has a flavor that complements this traditional Mexican dish."

The soccer viewing season starts today! Many are anxiously awaiting to see their favorite teams play and rooting for them to make till the end. But what's a soccer match without good company and food to celebrate? #LatinaBloggers have teamed up with Cacique as part of a year-long campaign to create fun game-viewing snacks and meals that represent their favorite teams. Each dish was inspired by the colors of a participating country's flag and by the flavors that country has to offer as well. Check out a few of them below!

Follow the #GoAutentico hashtag on Twitter and Instagram and check out our Soccer Celebration Recipes Pinterest board for all the #GoAuténtico recipes and more!

Presley's Pantry 

" With complete concentration on every move the athletes make and where the ball will land comes the desire to distract the mind a little with a snack that will help ease the anxiety.  Something edible to celebrate with or cry with, it has to be good.   The first thing that comes to mind is the soothing taste of Cacique crema, then a hard shell crunch, a little pickled chile, some crumbled queso fresco, and it has to represent the colors of Mexico."

Sweet Life Bake

"When deciding on my menu I knew I wanted a Mexican theme to support our beloved Mexican team. The colors of the Mexican flag - yes!" 

Nibbles and Feasts

"It’s that time!  And with that, I don’t mean summer, I don’t mean weekend, and I don’t mean spa day for me.  I mean, it’s that time, every four years when my husband watches soccer at odd hours of the day or night, or both!  Screaming at the top of his lungs when a goal is scored and I’m in a deep slumber."

#LatinaBloggers Live Event with Avocados from Mexico

#LatinaBloggers Acovados from Mexico eventOne of the greatest things about our job is that we get to indulge in some of the best, and most authentic, culinary experiences anyone could ask for. Spending an afternoon with wonderfully talented food and lifestyle bloggers while enjoying homemade dishes designed around one specific ingredient that not only speaks to us culturally, but brings us back to our fondest family dinner memories, is what I call an afternoon well-spent.

We took the #ILoveAvocados campaign from the blogosphere, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram to the kitchen by inviting several Los Angeles bloggers to experience the delectable taste of Avocados from Mexico. Our host, Maura Hernandez of The Other Side of the Tortilla, spoiled us with her creations - Guacamole with mango and pomegranate, Guacahummus, Agua de Albahaca, paletas and more.

As each dish came out, it was a lot of fun to see (and taste) the versatility of avocados. From spicy to sweet, each bite was a pleasant surprise. Thank you to Avocados from Mexico for being a delightful staple in our kitchens and for being there as we create memories with family and friends!

If you'd like to try some of the recipes we had during our live event, check out The Other Side of the Tortilla. You can also dive into the world of avocado recipes with Avocados from Mexico, follow the #ILoveAvocados hashtag or like them on Facebook!
