Patriotic Party Platter Recipe from Nueva Cocina

I had the opportunity to sample several items from this line and I love it's flavor and authenticity. So here is a July 4 repast!


What’s red, white and blue and delicious too?  It’s Nueva Cocina’s recipe for a Patriotic Party Platter.  Share the spirit of independence Day with these two dip recipes from Nueva Cocina (, the first 100 percentnatural Latin food brand.  You will have a “blast” serving them at your Fourth of July celebrations! 

I've found Nueva Cocina products at Natural Foods Warehouse. The products are healthy, well -priced, and most are gluten free. We really love the Picadillo seasoning! 

Red Salsa:

1 packet of Nueva Cocina Chipotle Taco Seasoning

1 can of diced tomatoes (10 oz.)

4 plum tomatoes

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 whole lime

½ cup chopped red onion

2 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro – optional

Salt to taste

Dice the plum tomatoes.  Add chopped onion, olive oil, seasoning mix and the can of tomatoes.  Mix together.  Add cilantro and salt.

White Bean Dip

Nueva Cocina White Bean Soup Mix

1 packet of Taco Fresco Seasoning

7-8 ounces of grated Queso Blanco cheese (may be substituted for another white cheese of your liking)

1 ½ cup of sour cream

5 tablespoons of olive oil (2 tablespoon for soup preparation and 3 tablespoons for the dip0

Follow the recipe on the soup, but only use two cups of water instead of three indicated on the package.  Once cooled, smash the beans for a smooth consistency.  Add the sour cream, 3 tablespoons of the olive, and the seasoning mix.  Mix together.  Add half of the cheese to the mixture and mix thoroughly.  Top with remaining cheese.

Arrange the dips on  a party platter with blue corn chips.
