If you're looking for a new and delicious recipe to spice up your traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, you've come to the right place! Today, I'm sharing a childhood favorite (with a bit of a twist of course), it's called chorizo con papas. 
Traditionally in Mexico, you eat this scrambled in with eggs or in burritos. It's delicious for sure, but I think this is even more amazing as a side dish to our turkey dinner (especially with all the extra seasonings & spices). 
Knorr® Tomato with Chicken Granulated BouillonLa Morena® Sliced Jalapeños were the two biggest flavor contributors for this recipe {aside from the chorizo of course}.

They're staples in my kitchen, that are great in just about everything-from seasoning meats to flavoring rice & soups. 

I have been cooking with them for as long as I can remember (since it's what my mom used all throughout my childhood). Now that I live in Ohio & away from all of my family in Mexico & California, I feel like the only thing I have left that reminds me of home is my Mexican comfort food. So, it's really important that I have the best quality & authentic flavors in my kitchen! 
Luckily, I still have access to my favorite, trusted Mexican ingredients (through Walmart's Hispanic aisle), so I can easily create delicious meals for our friends and family this special holiday season!

Speaking of this Holiday season, Knorr® & La Morena® are celebrating early this year with an amazing sweepstakes, where you can win a Kitchen Aid mixer, pressurized pot & over a $1000 in Visa Gift cards! See below for all the details. Good luck!
