Hispanic Heritage Month

 Do you celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month? My family is from Mexico, so we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, especially Mexico's Independence Day: September 16th. Let's say that this year, besides dressing up a little bit, we listened to Mexican music and we had enchiladas for dinner. By the way, these were not your typical Tex-Mex enchiladas smothered in cheese, these were authentic Mexican enchiladas. Or at least as authentic as I can make them! These enchiladas are made with homemade enchilada sauce made from guajillo chiles, topped with sauteed carrots and potatoes, sprinkled with queso fresco and drizzled with Crema Mexicana.    

                                         
Once you have some real enchilada sauce, there are so many other dishes you can make! 

Of course, you have to have some chips, salsa, pico de gallo, and guacamole to go with dinner!
     
During National Hispanic Heritage Month we recognize the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and their achievements in the United States. I love learning and teaching about influential Hispanic people that my students can identify with. 

Did you know that Zoe Saldana grew up speaking both English and Spanish?

Did you know that Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote songs for the movies Moana, Mary Poppins, and Star Wars? 

Did you know that Eva Longoria wrote a cookbook and has a restaurant in Hollywood? 
I have put a few facts together in the Hispanic Heritage Month Bundle. This bundle includes Hispanic Heritage Month Important People and Hispanic Heritage Month 10 Countries. This great resource includes information on 11 Hispanic Americans, information on 14 other important Hispanics, 10 Countries, their flags, a printable for each country, and a set of FREE posters. In fact, check out the Bundle Preview to see exactly what's included.

           
Hope everyone has a great Hispanic Heritage Month!


Best Wishes!

Angie
