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.

Siete Small Batch Kettle Cooked Queso Potato Chips
SMALL BATCH: KETTLE COOKED QUESO POTATO CHIPS

April 15, 2021

When our co-founder and sister, Veronica, said she and our Culinary Innovation Team were going to make a queso potato chip, we said, “Y’all are crazy! Everyone knows you can dip a chip into queso, but a Kettle Cooked Queso Potato Chip?!” Sure enough, not only did they pull off a deliciously flavorful mouthful with every chip, but, in true form, they also made them gluten free, non gmo, and yes—even dairy free, too.

Siete Family Foods: The Mexican-American Hyphen
What is The Hyphen?

April 09, 2021

We, Siete, are a Mexican-American food company that lives—what we call—“the hyphen.” The hyphen is a foundational, symbolic way of describing our culture as not being totally one thing or the other. In other words: it’s the blend of our authentic experience of both cultures, Mexican and American, into a unique identity that we identify with more than either culture on its own. Think: tacosand pizza, telenovelasand Friends, Laredoand Austin.
