Beer Flights and Fútbol, Six Beers to have while Watching the Soccer Tournaments

Beer Flights and Fútbol, Six Beers to have while Watching the Soccer Tournaments
This post was done in collaboration with Cost Plus World Market and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. All opinions are my own.

A Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites? Yes, please! In our home soccer is the ONE sport that we watch as a family; whether we are rooting for the same team or different teams. Our love for the sport is not only rooted in our heritage but also in our personal experiences. I played soccer in high school and so did my two sisters; and now my little ones are planning to play soccer, as they get older too.

Because this summer is the Summer of Soccer, we are getting ready to host a series of viewing parties. Especially, as we see Panama take part in what will be their first game ever in the history of the tournament – they had never participated before, so it’s a big deal in my home – therefore a celebration is mandatory!

To celebrate, I thought it would be perfect to host our Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites! After all, beer and fútbol just seem to go hand-in-hand. So to get ready, I visited the Katy Cost Plus World Market – find yours here. They have food and wine from over 50 countries and because I needed to get my hands on beers from around the world, it only made sense to shop there. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop for entertaining, decorating and food and drink needs at any budget. I was happy to have found exactly what I was looking for, at amazingly affordable prices.

I picked out six beers for the beer flights and after picking the beers; I headed over to the food area to find some bites that would compliment the beers. I found delicious bourbon popcorn, crunchy sweet plantain chips, and sweet and salty almonds. Because I got some Italian beer, I thought it would be ideal to have a spread of cheeses, salami and baguette crisps. But I didn’t stop there…. I was also able to find some entertainment essentials. Like the shot glasses and Olivewood Cheese Cutting Board that I needed for the beer flights. I got some additional items, which made it easy to serve all the bites -I’m linking those for you below.

The (Six) Beer Flights 

My picks for the beer flights included Birra Moretti, Peroni, Purple Haze, Lagunitas IPA, Red Stripe and Tsingtao. Birra Moretti and Peroni, which I had in Italy before are light bodied and paired well with the cheeses, salami and baguette crisps tray. Purple Haze from Louisiana, is a personal favorite! It is a bit darker in color but light in taste, and I loved pairing it with the sweet and salty almonds and bourbon popcorn. Lagunitas IPA was a new one for me! It is dark in color and has a robust and fruity taste. So, I liked the way it contrasted the salty pretzels. Jamaica’s Red Stripe is one that I had seen many times before, but not tried. I liked the taste; it is light and went well with the crumbled sausage Margheritta flatbread. Lastly, China’s Tsingtao was another new flavorful beer to add to my list of favorites. Light bodied and it paired well with the plantain chips.

As promised, below are the items that I purchased at Cost Plus World Market. You can shop online and even find some of these at your local store to make your summer entertaining a breeze. 😉

The Easy Way to Make Chicken Wraps

The Easy Way to Make Chicken Wraps

Happy Tuesday! So weeknight meals need to be quick right? But also delicious! I wanted to try something different in last week, so I made these crispy ranch chicken wraps. And let me tell you that not only were they easy to make, but they were also very tasty. This four recipe meal was served in under thirty minutes and fed my little family of four. If you’re ready to make this, take notes…

Making the wraps

You will need about four chicken breasts, panko bread crumbs and oil to make the crispy chicken. Coat the chicken with the bread crumbs according to the instructions on the package of your bread crumbs of choice – and fry until golden. You will also need tortilla wraps, cilantro (optional) and cheese – lots of it. 😉

Once the chicken is done, place as many pieces as you’d like on the tortilla wrap, add cilantro and cheese. Close the wrap and place on a countertop grill for a few minutes, so that the cheese can melt. Remove from the grill and serve warm.

Easy to Make Five Ingredient Flat Bread Recipe

Happy Tuesday y’all. So today I’m bringing you another easy recipe. While shopping over the weekend, I stumble upon these flat breads that come two per package in the bakery section. I thought it would make a quick and delicious dinner, so I brought one home to give it a try.

I wanted to keep the recipe as simple as possible. For that reason, I only added a few ingredients; chicken, bacon, bbq sauce, and mozzarella cheese. I feel that chicken is one of the meats that I use the most in the kitchen, but it’s honestly one of the meats that takes the least time to cook. I’m all about quick meals because no-one wants to spend hours cooking after a long day, am I right? 🙂 Keep scrolling for instructions.

Making the Flatbread 

First, I prepared the flatbread according to the instructions, I set it aside. Then I started cooking the chicken and bacon in separate pans. Once each was cooked, I sliced each into small pieces. I added some barbecue sauce to the flatbread – though you can substitute it for whatever type of sauce you’d like. Then I topped the flatbread cheese, chicken and bacon. I set it in the over for 8 minutes. Once the timer went off, I removed it from the oven and let it cool. Finally, sliced it in triangles because that’s what the girls wanted and served warm. That’s it! Easy right?

Not ready to make it yet? Pin it for later or share it on your social media! That way you will be able to come back to it. 😉

Delicious Shrimp with Peppery Sweet Corn Salsa Tacos

It’s Tasty Tuesday but also Taco Tuesday, so sharing a Shrimp Tacos recipe seemed appropriate. It had been a while since I had last attempted to make shrimp tacos. And this is by far my most favorite Shrimp Tacos recipe. The true star of today’s recipe is Kroger’s Peppery Sweet Corn Salsa. When I saw it on the shelf, it sounded too delicious to not take home with me. Though, I had not idea what I would do with it, I added it to my cart. While planning meals, I saw it in my pantry and thought it would add the perfect kick to the shrimp tacos I was planning to make.

I wasn’t wrong! This salsa added so much flavor to the shrimp, my husband who is the one from Mexican descent in our home loved them. And he can be as picky as my littles when it comes to food. But if he liked them, I thought the recipe was worth of sharing. I’ll get to the recipe now, I’m sure you’re sitting on the edge of your seat and ready to learn how to make this.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with these Easy to Make Lucky Charm Cookies

St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend! That means it is also mid-March.. where is time going? Back to St. Patty’s Day. I thought I’d help you celebrate by sharing this super easy to make Lucky Charms Cookies recipe. All you need is a box of Lucky Charms cereal, a package of sugar cookies, one egg and butter. That’s unless you want to make your own dough, then keep scrolling for my favorite sugar cookies recipe.

Making the Cookies

First, separate the marshmallows from the cereal (I did about 1.5 cups) and set aside. Next, prepare the cookie dough per instructions. The package that I got only called for 1/2 cup of butter and 1 egg. Once the dough is prepared, mix in about 1 cup of the marshmallows. Save the 1/2 cup to top the cookies and garnish. If you’d like to make your own dough from scratch, I recommend this recipe. I have tried it and it makes good sugar cookies.

Once you’ve folded the marshmallows into the dough, use a teaspoon to drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Make sure to place them about two inches apart. Bake at 350 (or temperature on your package instructions) for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven, they will continue to bake on the baking sheet for a few minutes as they cool down. Remove from baking sheet once cool, top with extra marshmallows and that’s it! 😉
