Tasty Thursdays: Goya Fiesta

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Instead of a recipe this week, I thought it would be the perfect day to share my personal review of Goya's Fiesta Baked Beans that they recently sent me to do so. These delicious new flavors still include original and vegetarian but there are now jalapeño and chipotle flavored beans. They have such rich, robust flavors with a Latin flair.

The original beans are mixed with savory pork, onions, mustard & spices then baked with sweet molasses and brown sugar. The vegetarian ones are baked in a hearty, sweet-and-savory tomato sauce with brown sugar, garlic, and spices.

The jalapeño one is black beans in a mild jalapeño sauce blended with sweet red bell peppers, tender corn, oregano, and other Latin spices (which was my favorite; I really loved the blend of flavors). The chipotle is red kidney beans in a savory tomato sauce with spicy chipotle peppers and sweet brown sugar (though, for me, it was more sweet than spicy but still tasted amazingly).

I haven't had a chance to try to quinua seeds just yet - still searching for a good recipe to use them for. Any one have any suggestions?

P.S. Today's my college graduation day! Whooo! :)

This post has me totally craving Quinoa! I don't have any particular recipes to share, but I usually do mine with a mixture of veggies, fresh cilantro, & a lemon+oil dressing combination. Perfect for a light Summer meal :) The beans look delicious too, haven't tried this brand before but may just!
