Let’s Have a Fiesta!
If there is any genre of food that we can’t get enough of, it’s Mexican food! It’s no secret, really. You guys seem to agree with us. Fit Foodie’s Taco Soup and Frozen Margarita recipe are always a hit with our Fit Foodie Finds Community.
If you have followed FFF for a while now you’ve heard us talk about San Miguel de Allende. Cole’s parents live in San Miguel de Allende and we try to make it down there once a year to visit (we are so freaking blessed).
One thing Cole’s parents always talk about how San Miguel goes big for every holiday. Though they may be loud and keep the city up at night, the amount of joy that people have around holidays like Cinco de Mayo is palpable.
