I love Mexican food. We make it often, probably easily 2-3x per week if not more frequently. We make it from scratch usually, with a few items that we’ll buy pre-made from time to time, but that’s pretty rare — until we found Del Real Foods products. I blogged about it once before here and am giving you a review of several of their awesome food products again today, along with a giveaway opportunity!
This post is sponsored by Del Real but the opinions and photos (except for the prize pack picture) are my own.
First, let me tell you about several of their food products I had the opportunity to try the last couple of weeks. Look at this big pile that we received!
That’s several meals for us! The first one we put together was the Rice with Vegetables and the Cheese & Bell Pepper Pupusas. We’ve had Del Real Pupusas before, and we are hooked. I was very excited to try the new Chicken Tingia but I was ruled out. Pupusas! (And I think the kids just like saying the name.)
We made them on a griddle, but you can microwave them quickly in a steam wrap. They take only 2-3 minutes per side on the griddle, and the rice is steamed (in its own disposable package) in the microwave for just a few minutes. It really doesn’t get easier, and it doesn’t seem like you’re eating pre-made “fast” food.
Of course, also added the Molcajete Green Salsa, a favorite salsa of ours for a while now, which we buy in two-packs at Costco.
Next up, we ate the tamales with homemade refried beans and roast corn on the cob. Another quick meal, though the refried beans did have to soak in water for a while to soften before I added in the other ingredients. (They’re a secret. Let’s just say: they rock.)
See how filled they are? No shortage of flavor and pork and cheese. We grilled about 30 seconds longer or so on each side for a bit more of an oozier result with a crispier outside. These would be a great to-go meal, you can literally pick it up in a napkin and run, mess free!
Then there’s the new Chipotle Chicken Tingia. I used this item into the recipe challenge for bloggers with Del Real Foods. I’ll share as soon as I can, but trust me, it’s goooood. I got to create an entree that used one Del Real item — and that was the only requirement! This was truly fun and I can’t wait to share it!
