3 Recipes to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

A great way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month is by preparing some of our favorite dishes, which are loaded with traditions that go from generation to generation. The the joy of cooking with incredible flavors is just one of the ways that we will be celebrating the month.

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15, during which time we celebrate customs, history, and contributions to American society. This great festival begins in the middle of the month since September 15 is the anniversary of the independence of five countries: Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. It is followed by the Independence Day of Mexico, on September 16, and that of Chile, on September 18.

It’s a well known fact that from grandma’s oatmeal to café con leche, we cannot miss dairy products on our table. Since we know the importance of the traditions, we want to share three Latin inspired recipes that you will want to make over and over!
