Little Taste Of Mexico

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Kroger. All opinions are mine alone. #RecetasParaMomentos
I still can't believe it's been a month since we were visiting family back home in California & Mexico! As I was going through pictures from our fun trip last night, I got a rush of nostalgia & felt incredibly homesick. I wish I could hop in the car and visit everyone again! 
Kroger is a store we'd never heard of until we moved to Ohio but we have quickly grown to love! They have some really amazing programs in place that make them stand out & shine {in my opinion}. Like their fabulous Fuel program which brings down the price of gas {per gallon} when you gradually accumulate points as you shop throughout the month. With fuel rewards that good, it will make summer travels a lot more affordable.
The fuel program is great and it rewards you for purchasing fresh food from Kroger. From all of our friends & family, picturesque views (playas), to the yummy Mexican food, there are so many wonderful things to miss about being back in my hometown! Although, we still have a couple road trips planned for this Summer, I'm fully aware that Cali won't be one of them :(. I wanted to share a recipe: carne asada tacos with a spicy mango salsa, with ingredients from Kroger that will help you get the most fuel rewards for your summer travels! This is a great recipe to bring to summer bbq’s and family get-togethers. These turned out really really good, so I wanted to share it with you today!
If you want to make a really moist & flavorful carne asada, I suggest letting your flank steak marinate over night so it can fully absorb all the flavors. You can find my favorite carne asada marinade {here} that I use on all our meat {It comes out amazing every time}.

Before I got started cooking, I needed to make a quick pit stop at Kroger to get my produce & steak. They have a really amazing selection of fresh locally sourced produce {at a great price}, so my family can always have the fresh seasonal produce they love! I also love that I get Fuel rewards for shopping at Kroger.
Do you have a Kroger near you?
I love that it's a one stop destination and whether you're looking for fresh produce, grocery items, bakery, flowers or fuel you'll always find a great selection {I've yet to be disappointed}! If you haven't already received a free Kroger Shopper’s card, head here to get yours:)!

But back to the yummy Mango salsa I was talking about earlier. It is super simple and only takes about five minutes to put together.
This is what you'll need: 1 tomato, 1 onion, 1 jalapeno, 1 mango, 1 lime, cilantro, 1 avocado and a dash of salt.
  • You'll simply dice the avocado, mango, onion, and tomato into small cubes and then place them in a bowl.
  • Then toast your jalapeno & dice it, chop your cilantro and add it to the bowl.
  • Mix everything really well and add the juice of a lime and a dash of salt.
  • Mix thoroughly and enjoy:)!

What are you looking forward to this summer?
Do you have any fun road trips planned? What fresh food items do you plan on buying to rack up some great fuel rewards?
