For me, I love experiencing the ways others celebrate traditional American holidays. I’ve found from Guyanese to Honduran to Filipino, there is always a few touches different from “classic American style” Thanksgiving. Heck, even African Americans, the culture that I am apart of cooks a bit differently the the mainstream White American table offerings.
What makes really makes those differences? Usually, it is spices, seasonings or touches of comfort foods from your culture blended into the American way.
Here are few ways to give Thanksgiving a Latino touch:
- Adobo Turkey with Red-Chile Gravy
- Pavochon from Puerto Rico
- Chompipe or Pavo Salvadoreño (Turkey recipe from El Salvador)
- Mole-Roasted Turkey
- Grilled Pernil
- Carambola (starfruit) cranberry sauce
- Modern mexican cranberry sauce
- Cranberry membrillo (quince) sauce
Side dishes with sabor Latino
- Pumpkin arroz con leche
- Sweet potato and orange arroz con leche
- Pumpkin Flan with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
