“Food is a language capable of communicating feelings on a deeper level.”
In the U.S. we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15, allowing us to celebrate and recognize the history, culture, and contributions that Hispanic Americans have made to the United States.
The celebration begins on September 15 because it marks the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries like Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.
Food is our way to celebrate!
No matter where you come from, there are many ways to celebrate and share your Heritage. The dinner table of each Hispanic family has something in common; the desire to share food and great moments with loved ones. If there’s food, there’s a reason to celebrate. This month gives us the best opportunity to celebrate our Hispanic cuisine and the explosion of flavors in all of our dishes.
Everyone is welcome to this celebration! At Cacique, we’ve prepared three iconic Hispanic recipes inspired by authentic ingredients and flavors for this occasion:
Simply delicious, just cook flavorful Cacique Chorizo in a skillet, then add Cacique Oaxaca – a deliciously creamy melting cheese. Let them blend together, then serve alongside some crispy homemade chips, tortillas, and your favorite Cacique salsa, and you will have a crowd pleaser on your hands.
A cross between a taco and a quesadilla. The ingredients are delicious by themselves, but when your tortilla is made of cheese, it’s even better! Tender beef birria in a tortilla made of pan seared Cacique Oaxaca cheese, topped with fresh onions, cilantro and Ranchero Queso Fresco, and you will have a reason to host a party on your plate.
Sometimes all you need is Cheese, tortillas, and enchilada sauce! Enchiladas have become a symbol of traditional Mexican meals due to their unique flavor and a long history originating with the Aztecs. Here’s a recipe you can prepare yourself with your favorite Cacique products.
