We won’t mention guacamole, cochinita pibil, chilaquiles, enchiladas, tortas, barbacoa, birria, or ceviche, as they are already well-known.

If you top them with your preferred salsa, they are a dish you will never tire of, especially during Hispanic Heritage Month.

When tamales are mentioned, they are quickly associated with Christmas, New Year’s, and Candlemas Day in February.

However, during celebrations like Hispanic Heritage Month, they are also very popular due to their unparalleled flavor.

It’s worth noting that tamales can be prepared in many ways, and even in countries like Chile and Argentina, they differ significantly from those in Mexico.

They are made with corn dough and filled with ingredients such as meat, chicken, or beans, wrapped in corn or even banana leaves.

Mole, an Ancestral Dish

Next, we present one of the ideal Mexican dishes to celebrate Hispanic heritage: mole.

Depending on the region of Mexico where it’s prepared, this ancestral dish has various versions.

Primarily, it consists of a dark and thick sauce served with turkey or chicken. Sometimes, it includes over 30 ingredients.

Among these ingredients, chiles and chocolate stand out, giving this dish a unique flavor that’s truly finger-licking good.

Chile en Nogada, Ideal for Patriotic Celebrations

Finally, among the Mexican dishes to celebrate Hispanic heritage, we have chile en nogada.

Just as tamales are associated with enjoyment during the Christmas holidays, this dish is linked to consumption in September.

It is said to date back to Mexico’s Independence, which is why it features the colors: green (chile), white (sauce), and red (pomegranate).

The chiles are stuffed with a combination of pork, fruits, and nuts. The sauce includes cheese, milk, and Castilian walnuts. Pomegranate is the finishing touch.

One More Dish: Pozole

According to the Sal Roche portal, pozole is commonly prepared during this month, especially during the patriotic celebrations.

It has a long history, dating back to pre-Hispanic times. Over time, it has undergone several changes.

Today, there are approximately 20 versions of this dish. The most prominent ones are white pozole, green pozole, and red pozole.
