'Pastel de Carne con Verduras' Takes Grand Prize in QueRicaVida.com's 'La Receta de Mi Cocina' Contest

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., June 14 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Leo Valenzuela, of Snowflake, Arizona, has cooked his way to the Grand Prize in QueRicaVida.com's "La Receta de Mi Cocina" contest. The 52-year-old realtor won out over hundreds of other participants, who sent in their recipes online between October 2009 and January 2010. The contest invited creative cooks to share their personalized version of a favorite Latin dish, using at least one of 14 General Mills brand products that support the company's Que Rica Vida multi-brand Hispanic platform.

Valenzuela's version of a traditional beef pot pie with vegetables, topped with Original Bisquick(R) mix and spicy Latin flavorings, wowed the panel of professionals, who judged it, according to Adriana Amione, Executive Chef of the iconic Betty Crocker Kitchens and founder of its Cocina Hispana.

"I've enjoyed cooking my whole life," said Valenzuela, a bachelor who says he shares his recipes with his many nieces and nephews. "I was taught by my mother and sister, but in fact, I learned much of my cooking skills from my brothers. We all love cooking and enjoying the meal together. That's the best recipe of all."
