Hispanic Heritage: How Latinos Have Changed the Face of Food in the United States

"These days, even regular grocery stores in small towns have been taken over with love for Latin American food - whether its authentic items like hot sauce or cheese made in Mexico, tropical fruits, and corn husks for wrapping tamales - to American products with Latin American-inspired flavors like dulce de leche ice cream and jalapeño potato chips. There are even faux Latin American food items like "breakfast burritos" to spice things up when a bowl of cereal doesn't excite you.
Latinos have contributed to this country in so many ways - adding sabor and variety to the foods we eat each day is just one them. I raise a toast, with my glass of horchata, to Latin American food in the United States. May the tortillas forever be plentiful, and the pico de gallo always fresh. Buen provecho!"
