Did you know Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15 through October 15?
Are you are looking for a flavorful recipe to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month? I have created a delicious, healthy Quinoa Bowl recipe to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month using products from IMUSA and Goya Foods. My family and I enjoy creating new recipes that have different cultural influences. Since it is Hispanic Heritage Month, I teamed up with leading Hispanic cookware company IMUSA and the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the USA Goya Foods to create this healthy Quinoa Bowl Recipe. The recipe is not only healthy but is incredibly flavorful with a dash of Hispanic flair.

The IMUSA products I used for the Healthy Quinoa Recipe include Red Ceramic Caldero (24cm), Nonstick Caldero (30 cm), Citrus Squeezer and Can Opener. The Calderos come complete with a matching lid.
The Red Ceramic Caldero the ceramic construction is Nonstick PFOA, PTFE, and cadmium free. The glass lid has silicone rim that seals in the flavor, a steam vent, and a cool-touch knob.
The Nonstick Caldero features hammered cast Aluminum, glass lid with steam vent, cool touch knob and nonstick coating.
The Citrus Squeezer is made of Aluminum and is ideal for using with lemon or limes.
The Can Opener features stainless steel accents and ergonomic handles.
*Note the Calderos have metal handles that get hot. Please use pot holders when using the Calderos to avoid burns.
