It's A Fiesta, Cheers!

February 19, 2021

We just added to the menu, our most exciting family kit yet!  It's a Fajita Fiesta Family Kit and it includes everything you need for a family of 5-6 to enjoy a perfect night in! An appetizer, meal and dessert plus a virtual family game you can play while you eat! Details of what the kit includes can be found here.

We wanted to create some delicious family friendly drink recipes that pair perfectly with our fajitas. The recipes below are simple and delicious and the kids will love assisting with the blending part! 

Our cold Ontario winters could use a shake up and a Fajita Fiesta might be the perfect family experience to help warm us up and have a little fun!
