Latin Fiesta... Ole!

It's summer and time to get things sizzling again in the kitchen! This month we celebrated the lucious flavors of Latin American cuisine.

Latin American cuisine is a phrase that refers to typical foods, beverages, and cooking styles common to many of the countries and cultures in Latin America. Some items typical of Latin American cuisine include maize-based dishes (tortillas, tamales, pupusas) and various salsas and other condiments (guacamole, pico de gallo, mole). Beverages includes mate, horchata, atole and aguas frescas. Desserts include dulce de leche, arroz con leche and flan.

Our Latin Fiesta menu included dishes that were flavorful, fresh and it was a nice cozy fiesta! Here are pics from the event along with links to recipes:
