Haylie and her friends used to jet down to Mexico every time they needed a little R&R. But between work, new babies, and crazy schedules all around, there’s no time for vacay. Well, in Mexico, that is! So Haylie decides to bring Mexico to Cali with a home-based fiesta of Salt-Crusted Whole Snapper Fish Tacos, fresh Sriracha Lime Corn tortillas and Cotija Corn on the Cob. Add in a piñata and margaritas, and the girls get a delicious taste of vacation while staying right at home.
