Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the United States between September 15 and October 15. It pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have influenced our society in a positive way. To celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, I partnered with Rumba® meats and will be giving away twenty wonderful cookbooks! The books are comprised of a collection of traditional recipes from twelve different Latin American countries, created by twelve influencers, all featuring Rumba® Meats products.
My Lengua en Salsa Criolla (Colombian-Style Tongue in Creole Sauce) recipe is one of the recipes in the cookbook titled “Recetas con Raices” or “Recipes with Roots”. There are many variations of Lengua en Salsa Criolla, depending on the region and even the family that prepares it. This is my grandmother’s recipe and it’s very easy to make and full of flavor.
Best of all perhaps, you can make a difference! By purchasing Rumba Meats® during Hispanic Heritage Month, you will be supporting La Cocina, whose mission is to help low income food entrepreneurs by providing them affordable commercial kitchen space, technical assistance and access to market opportunities.
To enter the GIVEAWAY, please leave a comment on this post with your favorite Latin dish.The giveaway is valid for those 18 and over who reside in the United States.Giveaway ends October 15, 2018 and I will email the winners!

I'm a big fan of Tamales
Me encanta el ajiaco y la bandeja Paisa.
I love Sobrebarriga Criolla. Every time I have this dish, it makes me happy. My husband laughs because I even do a little dance when I get it. It reminds me of my family and of all wonderful get togethers.

I have to say my favorite dish is Ajiaco. I love a lot of Colombian dishes, but Ajiaco is a comfort food for me. I am Brazilian with a Colombian Mom and German Dad. As a teenager in Brazil, all my friends tasted my Mom's Ajiaco in the cold winter in Southern Brazil. Now, I cook for my son who is American. I have been in California and USA for almost 20 years now. I think the Colombian seasonings influenced me a lot. I use cumin, onions, garlic and cilantro in a lot of my recipes. I love your blog! Gracias!
It is mine as well
Pabellon Criollo, the national dish of Venezuela. It has a super savory shredded beef, black beans and rice, plátanos maduros, avocado and a fried egg.

Siendo hispana de corazon, hay muchos sabores que amo entranablemente y me traen recuerdos de mi enfancia ya lejana en casa de mi abuelita paterna, pero el olor de los Romeritos, de las Enchiladas duranguenses, la Lengua Tapada entre otros me transportan a un mundo que ya no existe, pero que vive en mis recuerdos.

Muchas recetas de mi mamita pero preferido bistec, frijoles, huevo frito sober arroz blanco con tostadas. Delicia
Empanadas colombians me fascinan.
It is difficult to choose a favorite. Empanadas, Colombian tamales, and patacones are at the top of the list. But a fresh, hot almojabana is hard to beat.
Any Colombian dish but starting the list are the Lengua en salsa and sopa de mondongo.
I love cazuela de mariscos or sancocho!
Ajiaco . Empanadas. Natilla, Frijoles with pigs feet and rice. Cola de res with potatoes, yuca and rice, yummy... All these delicious Colombian dishes and more, bring so many memories of my childhood, specially during the holidays.

I live in a region where finding latino food is very difficult and its about 4 hours drive for any good latino food especially Colombian.In order to make any meals I need to order any specialty ingredients online. My favorite foods are ajiaco and la bandeja Paisa and of course empanadas. My family enjoys all these too. As a first generation American I am proud of my Colombian heritage and always look for ways to introduce the foods I grew up with to my family. Thank you for the chance to win!!!!

Mis platos favorito son ajiaco Bogotano y sancocho de gallina del Valle de Cauca. Un otro es la cazuela de mariscos como lo hacen en Buenaventura.
So hard to pick just one recipe...I love SANCOCHO!
Thx for the giveaway opportunity...

Just mine. But I think that you can find the recipe on the Rumba meats site.
I love lentejas
Lentejas is my absolute favorite dish!
Arroz con Pollo, Ajiaco, Caldo de Pollo. 🙂
I love all Latin foods as I don't have a favorite. I love to try any new dish even though I'm an absolute lousy cook, but I try. I'm not poisoned yet!
Arroz con pollo

Como típica cartagenera... arroz con coco, pescado frito y patacones!!!!!
PD. I love your recipe for pan de bono/yuca~ DELICIOSO!!!
Sancocho de Pollo Valluna, Empanadas, Chuzos, and a Jugo de Lulo. Nothing draws me back to my youthful teenage years in Cali, Colombia than these four simple culinary stars. You’d think that by age 65 I’d grow tired of these. Nope. Not going to happen. Ever.
Bandeja Paisa first and sancocho as a second best Colombian Dishes.
ajaico from Bogota
Bandeja Paisa y empanadas colombianas! Que rico y delicioso!
So hard to pick one out of so many wonderful options! It'd say AJIACO. which is somehow mild, rich and flavorful if that makes any sense. This is one of the dishes I make to introduce Colombian food to my friends in the US.
Ajiaco is my favorite! My Colombian husband is so happy that I found your page several years ago and love to make some his favorite recipes even here in the states!
I haven't had lengua in so many years that I can't remember what it tastes like My favorite dish is Peruvian Lomo Saltado. My mom used to make the best homemade french fries to add to it and the steak was so flavorful. I might have to make some soon.
I grew up in the US, though I was born and raised by Colombian parents. Unfortunately I don’t cook nearly as well as my mom does but I give it my all to try to impress my equally Americanized salvadorian husband. My all time favorite recipe is Sudado De Pollo from this web site. I know it’s kind of simple but it’s so authentic and it takes just as good if not better then my moms version. And the great thing is that it’s SO simple even my husband learned to make it, which is always a plus for my busy schedule

I miss Mojarra Frita con yuca, aguacate, arros y ensalada. De sobremesa una naranjada bien fria. La Calle 72 de B/quilla!!!!! Tambien tengo lindos recuerdos de Medellin, donde naci. Ir a al Centro Cotejer (a hacer nada, solo por "chicanear").......arepas con queso, sudado de pollo, chicharron (mirar los muchachos coquetear......:)Al
my favorite dish is Enchiladas mexicanas !
Hmmmmm...yuca with mojo
Sopes, Pozole, Tamales, Chili Rellenos, I could really go on into eternity with my favorite Latin foods.
Colombian empanadas! I can't find anywhere in Manhattan that makes Colombian empanadas, and I don't love deep-frying at home, so I'm usually beside myself when I go home and my mom makes a batch of empanadas with some of my dad's homemade pique =)
Un saludo grande. Mi plato favorito es la Bandeja Paisa Colombiana; con sus diferentes tipos de carne, arepa, frijoles, tajadas de maduro, huevo, aguacate, arroz, arepa! De los platos más deliciosos!. Adoro la cocina suramericana. De las más ricas y variadas. Vivo en Houston TX.
I love tamales and empanadas. And Chile Rellenos and tacos. Also, I’ve never tried one of your recipes that we didn’t absolutey love. Thank you!
My favorite is ají de pollo, but I also love lengua guisada, I could just keep going !
I am a big fan of Empanadas .
I love Mondongo and arepas with morcilla for breakfast.
I was so confident it was ceviche until I read the comments and realized on a chilly morning Ajiaco and sancocho sound amazing! Impossible to pick one favorite in a culture with rich traditions and options, but I will stick with ceviche. Seafood close to the ocean cannot be beat!
BAHO from Nicaragua!
My husband and I have been trying your recipes for the past 2 years as we prepare to adopt our son. So far I've really enjoyed Ajiaco, but I'm excited for all the rest of the delicious recipes that we will be trying!
Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.
I learned how to cook Argentinian style empanadas from my mom even though she is Colombian. But it was Sonu we learned living in Buenos Aires when I was young. Now it's a family tradition and my tween boys have learned how to make them. It's a household favorite for sure!
I love enchiladas rojas.
Sancocho forever and always - any which way. Thank you for the opportunity, just subscribed to this awesome page 🙂
One of my favorite Latin dishes is empanadas!!!^_^There is so much variety with a hand pie!!!^_^
Ensalada de Pulpo! Fui criada en El Rodadero y me hace falta mmmmmmm
