These days, the Lopez-Sarraff family is trying to keep life simple, especially in the kitchen! Having been away from blogging for awhile, I came back to basics. I didn’t always feel the need to make some extravagant meals for the blog like no other ever tasted or seen before. As a blogger, I came to realize that I don’t need to do these things. If I make the basic meals I plan to make each week, I can guarantee that I will be blogging without as much pressure with an even better result.
It’s not a problem to want to create fabulous recipes that others on the blogosphere have not concocted. Sometimes, it just begins to rule your life and you don’t want blogging to be or feel like a burden. Blogging should be fun and more like a hobby than a job.
The reason I got into blogging in the first place was because I wanted to share my kitchen with everyone. I wanted everyone in the world to have access to the tips + tricks that I, myself, have learned through this process of becoming a better, healthier me. This is a healthy and safe place for people all over the globe to come search for information about healing.
I guess this is where the change of gears is coming from with the idea of forming my new blog Essentially Healed. The focus of my blogging game changed completely over time. I did not even realize it till I had a chance to review it all from taking a step back. Now, I am ready to share everything with you guys. I don’t have to maintain it by only providing healthy food recipes and snacks, I can share my all the things I love. I can share my family, my creativity, and everything else I have to offer.
This is my place to heal and you are welcome to heal with me. I’ll start by giving you a recipe, I know I just said like the complete opposite, of some fabulous Mexican Fiesta Burgers that you will NOT want to miss out on. These Mexican Fiesta Burgers sure live up to their name! Once you take a bite of these, it will be a fiesta in your mouth, a Cinco de Mayo fiesta at that!

Chop peppers + onion. Mince garlic. Set aside.

Lightly grease a large pan with oil. Cook two patties at a time 2-3 minutes on each side. Repeat until no patties are left.
Serve patties in romaine lettuce boats and enjoy!
