Pollo Asado Lumpia Fusion

A perk of working in the education setting is having a few weeks of vacation spread out throughout the year. Spring break is extra special for me since it's two weeks long, the first of which my two boys are still in school. This Spring I was able to play around in the kitchen a bit during my time off. I tried out a few new recipes with the help of Del Real Foods.

The authentic Mexican cooking presented in easy and convenient heat-and-serve dishes is perfect for a busy family like ours. When thinking if dishes to cook, my kids come first. They are somewhat picky eaters, so I have to be creative in exposing them to new foods.

My son DJ loves the Filipino finger food Lumpia, so I took the Pollo Asado and Arroz from Del Real Foods as the main ingredients for my first spring break recipe: Pollo Asado Lumpia.
