Our Latin food recipes are rich in flavor and influences coming from Spanish conquerors and African slaves mixed with tropical and indigenous tastes.
There is no doubt each country has specific characteristics and ingredients that
make their cuisine unique, but overall there are what I call Hispanic food staples that you can find throughout Caribbean,
North American and Latin American food pantries.
I give a bit of history here Latin cooking section
Hispanic America gave to the world corn, hot peppers, exotic fruits, chocolate, vanilla, cotton, turkeys, potatoes, squash, yucca, peanuts, tomatoes and tapioca. Tapioca and peanuts? yes, I thought they came from Asia!
Choosing the Top Ten
It was not easy, but based on the popularity and ease of these recipes here they are. The ones included here are known because they are a "must" for certain holidays like Hispanic Christmas or Navidad, or because we -Hispanics- just love them and prepare them with simple ingredients we can find here in the U.S.
These Hispanic recipes are neither complicated (with the exception of tamales -at least for me!) nor are they designed to break your piggy bank. They are authentic recipes that carry the flavors of Hispanic culture. Enjoy.
