Let me start by saying Del Real Foods is a lifesaver for this working mom. Their fully-cooked authentic Mexican meals, like Carnitas and Pollo Asado, are easy to make, delicious and nutritious. You can get them in the refrigerated (not frozen) section of your grocery. For under $10, a box of your favorite Mexican staple whether it be Shredded Chicken or Beef for tacos; or Pork or Chicken Chili Verde, can feed your family of four.
So when I found out about the Del Real Foods Recipe contest, I figured why not join. Like I said, the Del Real meat entrees (Carnitas, Shredded Beef, Pollo Asado) have been a staple at our house.
You can vote for my recipe here – it is my version of the Cuban Ropa Vieja. Call it semi-homemade Ropa Vieja thanks to Del Real Foods.
