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. Last year - 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: 

Breakfast Tacos - Costa Rican Style

I grew up eating a lot of corn tortillas...tortillas and cheese was my go-to breakfast almost every morning during high school. My breakfast habit hasn't really changed since then, I just made it more hearty with the addition of scrambled eggs and salad. Truthfully this is one of my favorite any time meals, it's a fast filling dinner but it's a great way to start off the morning. It's a healthy & quick vegetarian dish that brings a little sunshine to your plate! Here's my recipe for tasty Breakfast Tacos:
