Simple Indulgence Cilantro Mojo Seasoning Blend

It's time for a new recipe. We are very fortunate to have a large Hispanic segment within our Tupperware organization, and with that we have their influence on colours and in recipes.

Having been very impressed with Tupperware's exclusive Simple Indulgence seasonings I've tried, I purchased the cilantro mojo seasoning blend, and was curious about how I would use it. Here is the recipe from the package:

Mojo Papas

3 lbs small red potatoes quartered
1/2 onion sliced lenghwise
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp Simple Indulgence Cilantro Mojo Seasoning Blend
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place potatoes in baking pan. Using the Saucy Silicone Spatula, mix in onions and extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with Simple Indulgence Cilantro Mojo Seasong Blend, tossing to coat. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Or try this recipe that is found on the Tupperware website:

Tomato Salad with Caribbean
Cilantro Mojo Dressing

Serves 6

2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 large red onion, sliced thin

Mojo Vinaigrette, recipe below

2 large ripe Haas avocados, cut into thin wedges
cilantro leaves, garnish

Caribbean Cilantro Mojo Dressing

¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp. honey
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
2 tsp. Simple Indulgence™ Cilantro Mojo Seasoning Blend
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

In the Quick Shake® Container, combine the lime juice, rice wine vinegar, honey, cilantro, Simple Indulgence™ Cilantro Mojo Seasoning Blend and salt and pepper to taste. Add olive oil slowly in small amounts until well-combined. Re-season with salt and pepper, if necessary. Cut the tomatoes, onions, and avocadoes using the Chef Series™ Paring Knife. In a Thatsa® Bowl using a Saucy Silicone Spatula, combine tomatoes, onion and dressing, toss to combine. Add avocado and gently mix. Place the tomato mixture in an Ice Prisms™ Medium Bowl lined with salad greens. Garnish with cilantro leaves.

I'll be trying both these recipes soon.
Give them a try and let me know what you think. I'll post your thoughts right here on my blog!
