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: 

Heirloom Tomato & Cheese Tart

Day 2 of Tomato Week- It's been a while since I baked something so a Tomato and Cheese Tart sounded like a good idea. This tasty tomato tart is a delicious & fast summer dish that can be served for almost every meal. The stand out is this combination of Fresh Oregano, still juicy baked Tomatoes on melted Aged Cheddar, topping a crispy light dough.

Here's my recipe for Heirloom Tomato & Cheese Tart:
