Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Chorizo

This recipe is part of a partnership with Bush’s Beans. Here in Texas, Chili season is a year around thing. For me is more of a winter thing, especially because I like mine with beans, yes, I know it is not the Texan way, but I love my beans and this Chipotle Black Bean Chili […]

Dulce de Leche Rice Pudding

Everything improves with Dulce de Leche. It’s the magical flavor of my childhood growing up in Chile. One of my favorite snacks was a Dulce de Leche sandwich, we have them so frequently it is truly the PB & Jelly equivalent. This Dulce de Leche rice pudding proves this idea right again.

The truth is it’s impossible not to take advantage of the incredible summer fruits in Chile, juicy and with a sweetness that I have rarely found anywhere else. These wine-based […]

Chimichurri Sauce
