Turkey Garbanzo Rice

I love recreating my most memorable childhood dishes.  Rice, beans and fideo were always a staple in our home.  My mother took those three ingredients and created endless combinations of unique meals for our entire family day in and day out.  I try to instill that family tradition in my son and create a variety of different meals with classic and new ingredients I find during my grocery shopping trips every week.

I grew up with Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon as a seasoning in my meals and I continue to pass on those Latin flavors in my cooking.  Now, I discovered Knorr® Fiesta Sides™ as a convenient way to continue my mission of creating meals my family will enjoy but with my own modern twist.
