Hispanic Heritage Month Food Recipes, Important People, Posters, and Mexican Bingo...So Many Ideas

Updated: Sep 25, 2023

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. Click on the pictures to get the recipes.

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?

These facts are included in the Hispanic Heritage Month Important People . Check out the video preview to see exactly what's included.

The Hispanic Heritage Month 10 Countries includes information on 10 Countries, their flags, a printable for each country, and a set of FREE posters.

This Question and Answer Bulletin Board is perfect for you classroom, your grade level, or for a school bulletin board! Students, teachers and parents will all enjoy learning about Hispanic Heritage Month.

If you're interested in a game for your students, you will love this Mexican Bingo! This is a fun and great resource for Hispanic Heritage Month because students can learn or review Spanish vocabulary words and then play the game. This game is played very similar to Bingo. This game is perfect for Hispanic Heritage Night or Multicultural Night as well. What a fun way to celebrate the Hispanic culture! Check it out.

Hope everyone has a great Hispanic Heritage Month! Happy Celebrations,
