McCormick celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month + GIVEAWAY!!!



Hispanic Heritage Month is here. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month McCormick is bringing consumers some new tasty additions to their already fantastic spices. In case you aren't familiar, Hispanic Heritage month celebrates the culture and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

I have to say that if you came to my house and peeked into my spice cabinet you would see that about half of the spices are the McCormick brand. I like that McCormick scouts the world, working with local farming communities and suppliers, to source safe, great tasting spices and bring them to consumers. McCormick has a long heritage and reputation for bringing rich flavors, high quality spices and innovative products to kitchens around the world for nearly 125 years.

My mami and abuelita used McCormick spices and I keep the tradition alive. I like them because they are good quality spices that I can use in many dishes including some of the Costa Rican dishes I make every so often.


Thanks to McCormick and IMUSA, I received a few products to make my cooking a little easier. In my goody package were the following items: IMUSA’s Lava Rock Molcajete, Tortilla Warmer, Salsa Dishes, & McCormick’s Black Pepper, Cumin, Mexican Oregano, Chili Powder, Cilantro Leaves, Taco Recipe Mix, Enchilada Recipe Mix, Tinga de Pollo Recipe Mix, Mayonnaise with Lime and Mexican Rice Mix.


These products are so going to make my cooking easier and tastier. I cannot wait to try the Molcajete to make some salsa using some dried green chiles I have from Santa Fe! Also, all these spices will enhance my guacamole, arroz con pollo and other tasty dishes I love to make! And the spices will always be something I use. Yummo!


Thanks to McCormick and IMUSA, I have a Cuban/Caribbean Prize Pack for one lucky reader! The prize pack includes several of the following items: IMUSA’s Wood Mortar and Pestle and Tostonera, & McCormick’s Black Pepper, Garlic Salt, Curry Powder, Paprika, Cinnamon, Oregano, Black Peppercorn Grinder, Chicken Bag ‘n Season, Black Beans & Rice Mix, and Paella Rice Mix.

What a fantastic prize! You will be cooking up storm in no time. And with these goodies, you might be inspired to make your own Hispanic dishes to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month! You know drill, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below!
