    Revamp your favorite holiday dishes. From strudels and empanadas to cobblers and quiches we’ve got you covered. Here's how to add a little more sabor to all your favorites. 

    Let’s start with the strudel. Chorizo and Spinach Strudel has all the flavor you need to get going in the morning. Smoked chorizo is paired with sweet spinach sautéed with leeks, covered in gooey habanero jack cheese, and served in a fluffy, flakey puff pastry crust. That’s right, bite into your strudel and make a mess. It’s worth it.  If you want to start your day off with eggs try a Mini Chorizo Quiche! Sautéed mushrooms and smoked chorizo are sprinkled into a quiche with jack cheese and the same flaky puff pastry crust.

    That strudel and quiche will keep you full until lunch where you’ll have plenty of choices, from Cranberry Glazed Pernil to Ham and Leek Empanadas. Cranberry Glazed Pernil has the tangy flavor you love from cranberry sauce with the sweet flavor of pernil and peppery kick from a rose, white, and cayenne pepper rub that keeps this pernil perfectly moist and full of flavor. Ham and Leek Empanadas are a great meal-to-go, with black forest ham and sweet sautéed leeks. Even the kids will love this one!

    Don’t worry, we didn’t forget dessert! Mango Gingerbread Cobbler couldn’t be more delicious or easy to make. Left over gingerbread gets an upgrade with fresh mango, heavy cream, and a touch of rum for a dessert that satisfies your sweet and spicy cravings.

    Enjoy the holidays and treat yourself to one of these Christmas dishes with a twist! Your tastebuds will thank you.
