Rolled beef taquitos recipe

Perfect Rolled Taquitos

These delicious taquitos are inspired by our chicken taquitos and shrimp and chorizo taquitos. The best part about these is that they are simple but packed with flavor and adored by guests of all ages! They are made for summer evenings by the pool.


Sizzling Carne Asada

Juicy carne asada is a staple for many dishes, from tacos to quesadillas. We love this recipe, and we love that it also pairs well with roasted chiles, roasted peppers and even other types of meat. Try this on the grill (check out our grilling tips!) some weekend evening and get ready to enjoy a new family favorite.

tropical-salsa recipe

Refreshing Tropical Salsa

Tropical salsa is a favorite for many, so why not try your own? This pairs well with simple pork tacos (an easy part of a great taco bar!) as well as chips and as a marinade. This is a fun, summery addition to your standard salsa choices.

It’s a bit hot outside, so we’d love to see you cool off at your local nearest Macayo’s for delicious foods and cool summer beverage choices!
