Paramount’s “Dora and the Lost City of Gold”
Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School.
Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.
Such an amazing Cast:
Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, Jeff Wahlberg, Danny Trejo, and Benicio del Toro
My son grew up watching Dora and Diego and they were the main characters of so many Spanish classes I’ve taught!
I can hardly wait for the beloved characters to come to life in the big screen next week!
Dora and the Lost City of Gold opens in Theaters August 9, 2019

In the film, one of Dora’s favorite recipes is her Abuela’s frijoles.
Here is one of my favorite recipes with frijoles, which I ate weekly growing up!
I can still remember the aroma lingering in my abuelita’s kitchen and later in my mom’s as well!
Hope you enjoy: Can you say delicioso?
Feijoada: Beans’ Stew
1 bag of beans Pinto or Black (I use Goya)
1 chopped onion
2 chopped tomatoes
2 tablets of caldo de carne Knorr ( brand my mom uses in Brazil), found at the Hispanic isle) or any bouillon cubes
Pinch of Cumin and Black Pepper
1 package of Hormel Salted pork
3 slices of Bacon
1 mild sausage ( I use Italian) chopped
Water to cover the ingredients
Place in crockpot to slow cook for 5/6 hours, check, when beans are soft and cooked, it is ready. Check salt, I don’t add salt, but if you like, add some at the end after tasting, because the pork already has salt.
Can you say Delicioso?
I did a live video from my kitchen on how to make it, you can watch it here:
I can’t wait to see you in NYC later this week! All you have to do is grab your screening tickets for Dora And The Lost City Of Gold HERE!

Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Thank you for liking my blog. Honestly this is my initial attempt at blogging. I used to write for a women’s magazine, but blogging is a whole new ball game and totally different. A humbling experience for me. I really and greatly appreciate you for liking my initial article, you just don’t know how much this means for me.
I enjoy watching Dora as a cartoon feature on TV. I’m glad that at last we women are being recognized more than just as a sex object. I’ll try to watch this as soon as it is shown here. By the way, I’m using your recipe right now for feijoada. I’m using a substitute ingredients able here. I hope my cooking will taste as delicious as yours. Except from the looks alone I think my cooking is very different from yours. Probably the taste will, too. Thanks, again Claudia. God Bless. Have a nice day.
