Oaxacan Stuffing with Fennel + Holiday Fun with Kroger
This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Kroger and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Earlier this week I was honored to take part in the Mi Kroger Food Summit in Dallas, TX. Not only did we have a great time chatting and learning from fellow amigas (friends) and content creators, but we each recreated a recipe from CelebraTusHolidays.com, using Kroger products, to share at the holiday potluck. I made the Oaxacan Stuffing with Fennel and it was todo un exito (a hit)!
So was the entire event and the other dishes.
I don’t know about you, but I love learning new things and trying new dishes. And my experience at the Mi Kroger Food Summit was definitely jammed packed with both. From learning more about collaborating with brands like Kroger, to creating sharable videos, to learning how to make tasty holiday cocktails and comida (food), to chatting about books and book deals. Add in my amazing fellow content creators and the Mi Kroger Food Summit was a welcome break to all the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a quick peak of all the goodness.
I don’t know about you, but seeing all that yummy goodness makes me want to recreate it for my familia (family). The best part is I can, and so can you! All the recipes are available at CelebraTusHolidays.com and you can grab the ingredients the next time you’re at your neighborhood Kroger.
Trust me, your family and friends will love you for introducing them to these yummy dishes this Holiday season.
Oaxacan Stuffing with Fennel Ingredients
- 12 oz. whole wheat bread, cut into ½ “cubes (7 cups)
- 14 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 2 large white onions, chopped
- 1 bulb fennel, cored and chopped
- 4 apples, cored and chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2 poblano chiles*, roasted, peeled, stemmed and chopped
- 6 oz. pitted prunes (about 26)
- ¾ tsp. ground cumin

Directions for Oaxacan Stuffing with Fennel
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spread the bread cubes on a 13”x9” baking sheet and bake until slightly toasted and dry, about 15 minutes; transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
Melt the butter in an 8-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onions, apples, garlic, and fennel and cook until apples are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add in the rest of the ingredients minus the eggs and toasted bread cubes and cook, stirring occasionally, until hot, about 2 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to the bowl with the bread cubes; gently stir until combined. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Stir in the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
Transfer stuffing to a 2-quart oval baking dish and bake until browned and bubbly, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.
That’s the beautiful thing about food. It not only nourishes us, but it always finds a way to bring us together. That’s why it’s the center piece of every celebration, especially during the holidays. So take you’re pick. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
