¡Viva Mexico! Breakfast Enchiladas And An Arroz Con Leche Bar #giveaway #primeroALDI

¡Viva Mexico! Breakfast Enchiladas And An Arroz Con Leche Bar #giveaway #primeroALDI

This post is sponsored by ALDI Supermarkets. However all opinions and recipes are 100% my own. I spent under $40 dollars at ALDI to create this brunch menu. I made Breakfast Enchiladas and an arroz con leche bar.

Last week I got an email from ALDI supermarket that asked if I would be interested in a challenge. As I read further it stated that I would have to create a menu to entertain a large group of family and/or friends for a soccer brunch. Immediately I thought “I welcome this challenge, and why not do it Sunday the 17th of June in time for us to cheer on our beloved MEXICO!!!!” They were basically asking me to have a soccer viewing party at my house on a $40 dollar budget. I love hosting parties and if I could make it happen with 40 bucks, even more to celebrate. Since we were obviously rooting for Mexico a Mexican brunch would be ideal. I decided to make a tray of breakfast enchiladas with huevos on top, an arroz con leche bar, and serve orange juice too. (more…)

Giveaway Alert: Party In A Box With Del Real Foods!

Aged boards from an old warehouse.

Have you tried Del Real Foods? This is my story…. I had seen it around at various markets but for some reason didn’t pull the trigger. I don’t know if the products were too new to me, or if I was waiting to try a sample before I decided.  Then a few days later, I was at my sister in law’s house and she was raving about Del Real Food. She told me she buys the beans and rice, and is a serious fan of the salsa as well. That’s it, I got the endorsement I was looking for.

A few weeks later Del Real Foods sent me a party in a box to sample and taste for myself. I couldn’t believe the selection of beautiful traditional Mexican dishes to choose from.

  • Carnitas
  • Chile Verde
  • Barbacoa
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Salsa de Molcajete Verde
  • Salsa de Molcajete Roja
  • Beef Tamales
  • Pork Tamales
  • Cheese Tamales
  • Chicken Tamales
  • Al Pastor Pupusa
  • Chipotle chicken tinga
  • Pupusas
  • Mexican Rice
  • Refried Beans
  • Shredded Chicken
  • Shredded Beef

I sampled the carnitas, shredded beef, pupusas, vegetarian tamales, and the beans. I couldn’t believe these were foods I had bought already packaged at the market. They tasted  as if my grandmother had made these dishes herself.    I want you to sample Del Real Foods if you haven’t already…. hence the GIVEAWAY!!!!

Del Real Foods, a California-based company, offers authentic taste that is gluten free and trans fat free. Del Real Foods are cooked in small batches over an open-kettle.

Having a PAR-TAY with ROTEL! Plus a GIVEAWAY.

I hear the word ‘party’ and my eyes light up.  I don’t need a reason to celebrate, something as easy as a game day with some friends is reason enough for me.  I instantly go into food mode, start craving all the fiesta foods that are not usually on the table.  Dishes that only a celebration can bring on.  Stuff that is reserved for a small serving but at a party can be a divine indulgence.  Now it’s an absolute necessity to have a party…. Let’s Spring into Summer with a game day.

Food: I wanted something easy to prepare and could be left on the table for the guests to help themselves.  In order to invite some zesty-ness into the menu I would have to use my beloved RO*TEL.  The vine ripened red tomatoes blended with green chiles and a savory mixture of spices always brings out the PUNCH in dishes.  I knew it would knock the socks off my guests.  I decided to make mini shredded beef tostada bites, creamy cheesy corn dip, and turkey chorizo chili beans to top our hot dogs off with!  The bounty of finger foods was a SMASH!

Ingredients for mini shredded beef tostada bites:

3 – tablespoons olive oil

1/2 – teaspoon chipotle powder

1/2 – teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 – teaspoon salt

1/4 – teaspoon black pepper

24 – mini corn tortillas

5 – cups shredded beef (I cooked a small roast in a crock pot, then shredded it)

fresh lime juice from 2 limes

salt and pepper to taste

2 – cans of original RO*TEL (drained)

Preheat oven to 375  degrees fahrenheit.

In a small bowl combine olive oil, chipotle powder, garlic powder, salt and black pepper.  Then take a corn tortilla and lightly brush with oil mixture. Place in a muffin pan, and continue till all are done. Bake in oven for 15 to 17 minutes or until crisp.  Set to the side.

Then in a dish combine shredded beef, lime juice, salt, pepper and RO*TEL. Mix well and serve with tostada cups. Top with cheddar cheese or guacamole.

And the guests were hungry… After a long day of playing horse shoes and cards we were ready to eat.  Some of my friends had never tried RO*TEL before and were surely happy to discover it. 🙂



Would you like to have a game day with friends and RO*TEL snacks yourself?  I have a gift set for two lucky readers.

  • Two cans of RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chiles
  • Recipe Cards
  • Chip-and-dip serving bowl
  • Green chili string lights
  • Outdoor game set
