20 Popular Hispanic Foods Everyone Should Try

Mike Garten

Hispanic food is an important part of the American culture.

Hispanic cuisine is a collection of dishes from Mexico and Spain as well Spanish-speaking South American and Central American countries. It also includes popular dishes from around the world, such as cinnamon churros and unique regional recipes. You may not find your Cinco de Mayo favorite recipes. These are influenced by Mexican cuisine, but are more Americanized.

Although there are many Hispanic dishes that can be summarized in one article, we have compiled a few of our favorites including spicy Argentinian chili, Mexican mole, and crowd-pleasing Spanish Paella. So whether you’re looking to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month (it starts on Wednesday, September 15 this year — mark your calendars!) These delicious, easy recipes are great for anyone looking to make a quick dinner.
