We only have eighteen summers with our kids and I’m making sure, my boys and I spend as much time together. There’s nothing I enjoy more than having fun with my boys, David & Carlos and see them happy. Every summer I plan our days, weekends and trips and I make sure we have the best time together because these are the memories that will last forever and what my boys will remember when they’re older.

Every year I have a Summer Bucket List which I must do to make sure we’re enjoying our summer together.
1 Visit a New Place
We do a lot of the same things every summer, but I make sure at least one thing is new and it’s usually a new place.
This year we went to Lake Arrowhead in California and we spent the most amazing week by the Lake. We spent hours on a boat, swimming and knee boarding, my boys said it was the best summer yet!
2 Try Something New and Get Out of my Comfort Zone
It’s easy to stay in our comfort zone but being mom to two very active boys there’s never a dull or slow moment, my kids all about outdoor activities, so this summer I decided to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.
So during our trip to Lake Arrowhead I tried wave surfing, it took me several intents to get up on the board but I nailed it and my boys where so impressed and proud of his mom, I love that feeling!
Cooking in the summer is something I don’t like to do, is hot and we’re always out & about, but one of my favorite products LA MORENA®, inspired me to try a new recipe, Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Dip.
Last week, during a beach party I had to bring an appetizer to share, so instead of bringing the usual, chips and salsa or guacamole, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and try a new recipe and it was a hit! I’ve been a fan of LA MORENA® products for years. I love their authentic taste of Mexican home and traditional recipes for over 35 years! It is the flavor consumers can and have trusted and will continue to be.
Preparing Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Dip is so easy, here’s what you need to make 1 cup
- LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo (7oz can)
- Greek Yogurt
- (1) Lime Juice
- Queso Fresco
- Green Onions or Chives
- In a food processor, throw 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 2 tbsps of LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo adding some of the sauce as well, lime juice, 1 garlic clove, about 6 green onions or chives. Sprinkle crumble feta cheese and chopped green onions or chives to garnish and serve with veggies or chips

Sprinkle crumble feta cheese and chopped green onions or chives to garnish and serve with veggies or chips. Trying this new recipe helped me rediscover myself, being adventurous and spontaneous is important to me it makes me happy. It also helped me rediscover LA MORENA®, so I made it my goal to try new recipes more often.
I bought LA MORENA® products at Food 4 Less, where they always have great prizes.
They have a great selection of LA MORENA® I can’t never have enough chiles at my house. My family loves them!
So also bought LA MORENA® Sliced Green Pickled Jalapeño Peppers (28oz can). As the leader in the chiles and peppers category they’re always part of our table.
3 Enjoy the Ordinary Moments
Everyday I’m focus on planning activities for us and I forget that simple moments bring joy as well. Pj’s days, pancakes for lunch, late movie nights, watching the sunset by the beach, board game afternoon. Sometimes the unplanned days end up being the best!
I want to challenge you to rediscover yourself and get out of your comfort zone! Plan a trip to a new place, discover a new way of cooking using LA MORENA® do what is important to you! Coming soon! Check out where LA MORENA® is taking me this summer on @The Latina MOM Instagram page!
