Meal Plan: Fiesta Inspired Dishes
Rice, beans, avocados, tomatoes, and tortillas are common items in this week's featured menu. Broadening our horizons can mean more than just a mindful study, but also a full tummy. Mexican inspired food can always unique, depending on the cook's penchant for mild, medium, or spicy concoctions.
This week featured recipes are sure to create a fiesta in your own kitchen. Go all out and dine outside with a Mexican flag, sombreros, Latin music, and the whole family; maybe even invite the neighbors.
