March Taco of the Month

This month’s Tinga de Pollo is comfort in a taco. Chicken breasts are braised with a whole bunch of delicious ingredients and then topped with tomatillo salsa, avocado, and queso fresco.

“Tinga” means stew in Spanish. Tinga de Pollo is popular in the state of Puebla, served on its own or as a filling in tortas. Our tinga is classic, homey, and packed with smoke and subtle sweetness from the chipotles en adobo. It also has some satisfying heat that’s not for the faint of corazón.

March Margarita of the Month

Spring is in the air and a refreshing Pomelo Oregano Margarita is just what you need. Made with fresh pomelo juice, cane sugar, and Mexican Oregano, it’s herbaceous, gently bitter, and brightly tart. The drink gets its bunch from bacanora, an agave spirit from the southwestern state of Sonora, Mexico from the agave species Pacífica. This bacanora is rich and balanced with bold citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, and baking spices, subtle black pepper, and more citrus fruit on the palate.

Horchata for a Cause

We’re proud to support MaxLove Project this month as our beneficiary. This non-profit organization focuses exclusively on improving the quality of life and reducing long-term health risks for families affected by childhood cancer. Most kids that survive cancer  experience  much lower quality of life and have much higher health risks for everything from heart disease to obesity to secondary cancers and early death.

To fight these odds, MaxLove Project educates survivors and their families about whole-body wellness resources through cooking classes, social support, and a variety of other educational opportunities. To learn more, visit maxloveproject.org.
