Summer is not over and there’s till time to enjoy the fiesta! To end the summer outdoor festivities with a kick, I thought about kicking it up a notch and creating 3 ways to spice up a taquiza with #TaquizaTabasco!
Wait… some of you might not know what a taquiza is! Truth is, I’ve been having them for years but it was only recently that I discovered the actual name for them.
