Qsine Treseviche Recipe
Must-Try Recipe: Qsine's Treseviche
By Kelli Acciardo | 09/11/2014 - 16:14

Qsine is one cruise ship restaurant that's seriously loco — in the best way possible. The idea behind the whimsical venue aboard Celebrity Cruises, is to take you on a culinary journey that delivers elements of surprise and delight. Before you even get to the food, you are seated in chairs with one arm, while full wine glasses rest on their side in front of you (think: Alice in Wonderland-meets-Top Chef). The menus come on iPads and feature fantastic fusion dishes like Lobster Escargot, Sushi Lollipops, and our personal favorite — the Treseviche, which is a tiny trio of salmon citrus, sea bass, and shrimp and scallop varities that will seriously please your palate. Try this simple, yet impressive, recipe out at home for your next tapas-style dinner party!

Hello Fresh Chiles Rellenos
Irresistibly Easy Stuffed Chiles Rellenos That Are Actually Low-Cal!
By Irina Gonzalez | 08/16/2014 - 12:00

Often, being busy at work (and in life) keeps us from making the healthiest choices, and eating out can take a toll on our waistlines. Luckily, these days eating in (and cooking) has never been easier thanks to services like HelloFresh, who make cooking a simple and fun task by delivering delicious recipes and fresh ingredients straight to your doorstep. 

When it comes to making dinner, let's admit it: we don't always have all the time in the world to make a healthy, delicious meal. Often, being busy at work (and in life) keeps us from making the healthiest choices, and eating out can take a toll on our waistlines. Luckily, these days eating in (and cooking) has never been easier thanks to services like HelloFresh, who make cooking a simple and fun task by delivering delicious recipes and fresh ingredients straight to your doorstep. 

We fell for the Stuffed Chiles Rellenos recipe right away, since this is no ordinary stuffed pepper! The combination of the spicy meat and spicy tomato sauce with the rice and cheese make for a filling meal. That's why we were surprised to find that each pepper is only 561 calories! Tell us: is there anything better than an easy-to-make meal that is also low in calories? We didn't think so.

Must-Try Recipe: Richard Sandoval's Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla
Must-Try Recipe: Richard Sandoval's Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla
By Kelli Acciardo | 08/15/2014 - 12:45

This Richard Sandoval recipe from his Manhattan restaurant Maya will have you craving quesdillas every night.

When world-renowned chef Richard Sandoval invites you to his guacamole tasting festival at Manhattan's Maya restaurant, you go — even if one of the said guacs involves fried grasshoppers as a topping. That's right, when we sat down to sample Sandoval's avocado-based dips, we were presented with an unexpected addition. Turns out, it's pretty major (and crunchy).

While this insect alternative to the classic guacamole was impressive, we were equally satisfied by his Rock Shrimp and Bacon Quesadilla. So much so, we even stole the recipe for you to recreate at home (de nada). Try this tasty dish for yourself and reserve a table at Maya from now until September 30th, 2014 to partake in a festive culinary experience that features seven unique guacamoles, among them a fruit-centric Baja Guacamole, made with kiwi, jicama, strawberry, mango, mint, chile de arbol and lime, and a Pacifico Gaucamole, boasting grilled beet, roasted walnut, queso fresco, diced-orange and citrus-chipotle salt.

Ortega Seven Layer Dip
Aaron Sanchez's Super Easy Seven-Layer Dip Fiesta Flats
By Irina Gonzalez | 08/13/2014 - 11:35

Last week, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from chef Aarón Sánchez. Stopping by the Latina offices, he and the Ortega team shared news about an exciting new product, the Fiesta Flats. These fun taco shells are a great way to serve appetizers, and chef Aarón has developed some exciting new recipes for Ortega featuring the Fiesta Flats and the Fiesta Flat Minis. Naturally gluten-free, we loved the versatility of these shells, whether you're serving up some of your favorite ceviche or making them a part of your DIY taco bar. 

For our money, one of the best recipes was this super-easy take on a layered dip. For a simple but sure-to-wow-them appetizer, try Aarón Sánchez's Seven-Layer Dip Fiesta Flats!
