Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Potato, Leek & Kale Soup

It was blistering cold and windy yesterday. Temperatures were in the negative numbers and of course this gave our heating system a hell of a workout! To be honest even with the heat on and sweaters aplenty I was still cold so out came the soup pot. This is a great quick warming soup, full of root veggies in a delicious rich broth. Hope you enjoy and stay warm!
