National Soup Day February 04 2016
No soup for you! Unless you’re like us and you’re celebrating National Soup Day today - then you can enjoy all the warm, delicious soup you’d like! Whether you like a nice cup of soup as a starter or a hearty bowl for your main course we’ve got some extra special recipes for you to try.
Not-So-Classic Chicken Noodle: most chicken noodle soup recipes call for chicken stock, carrots, shredded chicken meat and egg noodles, but not this one. Although you will need the basic ingredients, we like to kick ours up a notch. Substitute egg noodles with penne pasta or spaghetti, and marinate your chicken in La Flor’s Don Diego hot sauce. Don’t forget to add a dash of La Flor’s Chicken Bouillon for flavor.
Larry The Lobster Bisque: the two ingredients in lobster bisque are lobsters and bisque, right? Well, yes. But there’s a bunch of other delicious ingredients that come together to provide you with that mouth-watering flavor. Search for your favorite recipe online and then add sweet corn kernels and a touch of La Flor’s Cayenne Pepper to taste.
Burly Beef Barley: whether you’re outdoors chopping wood all day or doing something a little less macho, there’s nothing like sitting down to a cup or bowl of beef barley soup. Trim and chop boneless chuck roast, slice your carrots and celery, add mushrooms and don’t forget the La Flor Beef Bouillon.When taste is everything, La Flor is all you need to transform National Soup Day into an extraordinary culinary delight.

Spice Up Your Weekday Lunch January 12 2016
Turkey sandwich - bland. PB&J - boring. Hot pocket - need we say more? For those of us battling with the daily 9 - 5, crafting a culinary masterpiece for lunch sounds like a terrible joke. But believe it or not, there are a bunch of ways you can take that boring brown bag and fill it with something you’ll actually look forward to after those morning meetings.
- Chicken & Avocado Sandwich: take your boring turkey on white bread and kiss it goodbye. Substitute sliced turkey with cooked chicken breast, cut up a quarter of an avocado and a few slices of tomato and you’ve got yourself a simple, yet delicious sandwich. Add a pinch salt and a dash of pepper for some extra flavor and you can even take it to the next level by creating an herb mayo dipping sauce with our basil leaves.
- Buffalo Chicken Salad: prefer a lighter lunch option? Put your own spin on a buffalo chicken salad by seasoning the chicken with our chili powder and cayenne pepper. Chop up some lettuce, add a few diced tomatoes and pack your favorite blue cheese dressing on the side.
- Homemade Burrito Bowl: why order out when you’ve already got your own burrito bowl? This simple recipe calls for your favorite choice of rice, diced chicken or chop meat seasoned with some adobo picante, sour cream and shredded cheese. Load up a container with all of the above and you’ll surely make your coworkers jealous.
