This year, Sauza is teaming up with some pretty hot firemen to grant random acts of kindness – all out of a blue Sauza fire truck that made its debut in NYC. Make sure to look out for the truck in cities like Phoenix, Las Vegas and Chicago. The best part?

For those who take their favorite Latin foods with extra cheese, like to add a dollop of cream or prefer food fried, scientists have discovered you can savor those foods without fretting so much over the high fat content. All you have to do is be heavy-handed with the spices, as researchers at Penn State recently found that spices can cut the risks associated with high-fat meals. And while many traditional Latin American dishes are cooked without a concern for saturated fat or cholesterol, nobody skimps on the seasonings.

It's a cultural imperative in a Latin household that when you have guests, you serve them food. You probably try to serve them coffee too, regardless of the time of day. No matter how politely your guests refuse the offer, you will go down fighting to give your guests something to eat. But here's the thing that no one ever wants to talk about: Many traditional Latin recipes (including my favorite, Empanadas de Carne) are fried, breaded, or otherwise loaded in trans fat, calories, and cholesterol.
