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: 

Easy Avocado Toast

We've been working from home almost 3 weeks now due to COVID-19. We are social distancing by minimizing our time outside in public areas and that means scaling our shopping down to as few trips as possible, ie once every 7-10 days. This has worked well for us as we regularly plan what we need in advance of going to the store. Last week on our store trip, I was happy to find some avocados and just my luck one turned out to be ripe this morning with the others a few days away.  
I love avocado and this perfectly ripe one meant it's taste should be enjoyed not overloaded with toppings. So I decided to make this Easy, Simple and Tasty Avocado Toast. No fancy-schmancy toppings, mixes or pureeing, just thinly sliced ripe avocado sprinkled with some salt, pepper, and paprika on a hearty slice of bread. Here's my recipe:
