Hispanic Heritage Month highlights the traditions and history of the Hispanic culture and people. One popular topic of Hispanic Heritage Month is the delicious food. According to Study.com, there are many ingredients important in the dishes such as avocados, beans, limes, onions, rice, tortillas, and garlic.

Recipes are handed down from each generation including dishes that were cooked over an open fire, steamed, or fried. Family members learn how to make dishes from scratch and keep the beautiful traditions of their culture.
