Upcoming ¡Sabroso! Saturday Link-Up

by Migdalia Rivera

I love to eat! In fact, I have the pounds to prove it!

I love savory, satisfying, succulient, sabroso meals. Notice the “S” theme? I did! Which made me think why not start a link-up for these meals, along the lines of Wordless Wednesday, where everyone can share their recipes. You would be able to link up any recipe blog post or vlog you created that week.

By sharing, we’ll tantalize our tastebuds with new recipes that have already been tested and approved by other families. Of course, I am hoping to find some sabroso/savory meals that are healthy as well, because honestly I could stand to lose a few pounds!

One recipe from the linked up posts will be highlighted each month. It will win the prestige of being that month’s  “¡Sabroso! Saturday Winner” and will be showcased throughout the month. 

If you have the skills and are willing to design a “¡Sabroso! Saturday Winner” button, please e-mail MsLatina (AT) latinaonamission.com Its a great way to promote YOUR design skills since I will make sure to note that you created it!



Till then, I’ve noted a recipe I have tried out at my home. It was created by Leo Valenzuela for Bisquick’s “La Receta de Mi Cocina” contest (Translation: The Recipe from My Kitchen”) and won him $3,000! I loved it because it was easy to make and my boys loved it. Note: I used ground turkey instead of steak – much more economical and just as tasty!
