Latino Thanksgiving Recipes!

Thanksgiving is an American holiday and it is not celebrated in most Latin American countries, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give Thanksgiving a bit of tropical sabor!  I believe in food as a way to connect with family and with your traditions. So, play around with the ingredients and get some flavor in there or choose one of these great ideas to give your Latino Thanksgiving un toque especial!

Thanksgiving is about family, about giving thanks, and about gathering around delicious food and that is something Latinos know a lot of.  For me gathering with family and friends around the table always involves making food that connects us to our culture and in my case mis raíces chapinas (Guatemalan roots).
