Below, our family has collected some of our favorite Summer songs, movies, books, and recipes to share with you. We hope it incites a little happiness, entertainment, flavor, movement, and community into your day. 

Siete Summers 

Playlist

Normally, summer playlists set the mood for carne asadas or pool parties with agua frescas. While this summer may look a little differently than last, music can still bring fun-in-the-sun vibes to a party of one (or a few). This Siete Summers playlist is a press-play-and-get-on-with-your-day jam session, created for when you’re sunbathing in the backyard or enjoying a summery cocktail on the patio. 

Summer Playlist

School may be out for the summer, but don’t put your bookmarks away just yet! We put together a few of our favorite summertime reads that you can enjoy in your favorite reading nook, or out on a sunkissed picnic blanket. Kick back, read a chapter, and get lost in a whole new world for an afternoon.

It was our Grandma Campos who taught us that family always comes first, and it was her stamp of approval of our first tortilla that gave us the extra push of confidence to put ourselves out there and share our food! She inspired us to be brave, lead with love, and put family first. Our grandma shaped us and our family, and we honor her and her legacy every day.

Siete Foods: Carne Asada - Taco or Gathering?
Carne Q&A with Figs and Jorge

October 07, 2021

Carne asada is not just a scrumptious cut of meat (usually beef) slowly cooked over a fire. It's an atmosphere and gathering where conversations are shared, corridos are played, and eventually, after a handful of cold beverages, bread is broken. Here, our Siete Grill Master and Culinary Expert have come together and answered a few questions about what exactly 'carne asada' means to our familia!
