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. Besides the flavorful ingredients, family is another important aspect of the Hispanic culture. 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. According to WebstaurantStore, some popular and cultural Hispanic foods include Tortilla Espanola, Empanadas, Tajadas, Ceviche, Churros, Tacos, Flan and, Tres Leches Cake. These foods are connected to Hispanic countries such as Argentina, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Mexico, and Ecuador.
