In celebration of Dia de los los Muertos, I recently got together with a few Los Angeles bloggers to share and enjoy some of our favorite meals made with Mazola Corn Oil. It was great fun tasting the various traditional dishes and sweets.
My earlier post included a video of how to prepare my favorite dish of Papas con Carne. To review the video for cooking instructions for the ingredients below, click here.

Mazola® Corn Oil accentuates the natural favors of foods and because it is tolerates higher cooking temperatures it was just right for preparing my dish.
