Hispanic Heritage Giveaway, courtesy of IMUSA and McCormick

I am proud to present my first giveaway, right here on La Cocina de Christina. Hispanic Heritage month runs from September 15 through October 15, so it is only fitting that this Cubanita waits until the last possible moment to bring you these wonderful prizes.

As part of the contest, I had a chance to test out some of these fun ingredients and tools. 

For breakfast one Sunday morning, I whipped up the congri (Arroz con Frijoles Negros) package and gave it a little fried egg sombrerito. Que lindo. Y muy rico.  So happy to have tried this package. Instant sofrito smell in la cocina. 

What's in it for you?
This amazing Mexican package, courtesy of IMUSA and McCormick, which includes: IMUSA Cloth Tortilla Warmer, IMUSA Multicolor Salsa Dishes, IMUSA Granite Molcajete, McCormick’s Black Pepper, Cumin, Mexican Oregano, Chili Powder, Cilantro Leaves, Taco Recipe Mix, Enchilada Recipe Mix and Tinga de Pollo Recipe Mix.

What would you make with your new package?  Leave a comment below with your answer in order to enter the contest.  Chances are probably really high since this is my first giveaway. Contest ends tomorrow, October 15, at midnight (EST).

¡Buena suerte!

Disclaimer: The Cuban package IMUSA and McCormick products used in my testing were sent to me in exchange for hosting this contest. The winner of this contest will win a Mexican package, mailed directly to the winner by IMUSA/McCormick. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.


  1. Sounds like a Mexican feast night to me! First, I would make Carnita Tacos using the Taco Recipe Mix. I would keep the tortillas warm with the warmer while I make the rest of the feast. I would then make Chicken Enchiladas. Then I would prepare Tinga de Pollo although I have no idea what it is. But there is always a first time. I would use the Molcajete to crush garlic and use all the wonderful spices to add the true Mexican flavor. I would also make a fresh salsa from tomatoes, red onions, lime juice and finish it off with the cilantro leaves. A perfect side dish which I would serve on the salsa dishes. What a meal. Now to enjoy!

  2. It would be taco night at my house! Use the taco recipe mix for some shredded steak tacos, Use the tinga de pollo mix to make some tostadas with shredded chicken. I would use the Molcajete to make some yummy guacamole, using the McCormick’s spices, I would also use the tortilla warmer to keep my fresh tortillas warm. I would use the multicolor dishes to put the ingredients such as cheese, sour cream, lettuce, diced tomatoes so every one can make the tacos to there liking. Then for my family to enjoy!!

  3. My family is partial to fajitas. We would have churrasco fajitas, always a hit. Everyone likes to assemble their own.

  4. I would make chicken enchiladas or perhaps a Mexican cornbread casserole!

  5. I would make Chimichangas
