Day 28 of Things I Love

A Fiesta

I gave this much thought, yall. I could have just said Mexican food, more specifically, chips & guac, but why stop there? My favorite snack: Chipotle's Chips & Guac. I must have it once a week! On my honeymoon, it was daily. Somtimes twice daily (our resorts version was just that good).
Mexican culture is one I've always been fascinated with as I've studied abroad in San Miguel de Allende. And I know Mexico isn't the safest of places to travel right now, but don't hate. I adore this quaint town as it will always be one of my favorite places on earth. It opened my eyes to a colorful place full of kind people. Not only that, the authentic Mexican dishes that I tasted were amazing. Paying a little tribute to all of that is something I love to do! Cinco de Mayo isn't too far away, either! My girlfriends threw me an amazing fiesta bachelorette shower including everything from the amazing menu to the pinata to the sombraro because they knew Steven and I were taking a trip to Playa del Carmen. Bright colors, amazing food, tequilla?! It's just too much fun!

I leave you with a yummy & delightful bite:

Wontons (found near pre-made salads/organics in the produce section. They will most likely be Asian)
Taco Seasoning
Ground Beef/Peeled Shrimp
Salsa (fire roasted tomato salsa from the Teeter is key)
Tomato, Green Onions, Olives (not much of each)
Fiesta Cheese
Sour Cream

brown beef/cook up some shrimpers seasoned with Taco Seasoning
Set your wontons in a cupcake pan
Add a bit of beef to some, shrimpers to some
Add a scoop of salsa
Add a scoop of sour cream
sprinkle with tomato, green onions, and olives
sprinkle with fiesta cheese
Bake on 350 until cheese melts/wontons crisp!
Pop In Your Mouth!
