Sac Foodies turns 3!


Well, it’s that time of year once again.  That’s right, Sac Foodies has turned three! It’s growing up so fast. *tear*

It was definitely a reason to celebrate and in true foodie style, that meant a potluck.  It has become a sort of tradition for the Sac Foodies to congregate once a year around food, family and friends, and feast on a variety of dishes.

This year was the first themed potluck, graciously hosted by Kim.  The theme was Mexican, which allowed us to flex our culinary muscles and prepare all sorts of creative dishes.

We would like to share our delicious South of the Border fare with you, so we will be posting the recipes over the next few weeks.

The first recipe to share was made by the newest member of the Sac Foodies and FHamily, Cristina Dayton.  This recipe was provided by one of our clients, the United States Potato Board, and is an inexpensive, quick and healthy spin on a Mexican classic.

We hope you enjoy our recipes, as we take you on a culinary tour of Mexico.  ¡Cocina y come!
