Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month - #HormelFamily

I received products as part of the Hormel Extended Family Blogger program. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed in the United States each year from September 15th to October 15th to recognize the histories, cultures and contributions of Latino and Hispanic Americans to the United States. This group's heritage and culture has enhanced our country and shaped our national character with their ethnic traditions, especially their food.

Hormel Foods is made up of many different Hispanic and Latino inspired ethnic brands including CHI-CHI's salsa, Herdez, La Victoria, Wholly Guacamole, Don Miguel Mexican Foods and more. Here are a few Hispanic and Latino inspired recipes to create in your own home:

Appetizers:

Black Bean Soup: This soup is a tantalizing combination of CHI-CHI's Picante Sauce and Hormel Black Label bacon. Serve to guests to whet their appetitie or create larger portions for the main course.

HERDEZ Creamy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa: Simply combine HERDEZ Tomatillo Verde Mexican Cooking Sauce, a ripe avocado, non-fat Greek yogurt and cilantro leaves to create a delicious twist on traditional tomatillo salsa. Perfect as an appetizer or as a topping to grilled fish tacos.

Main Courses:

Shredded Beef Enchiladas: Create homemade enchiladas that will impress your guests by topping them with a comfination of beef and LA VICTORIA Red Enchilada Sauce. You'll look like a professional when these come out of the oven.

Chicken with Tomato Mango Relish: This dish is an irresistible mix of sweet fruit and spicy salsa together in one amazing recipe. Use CHI-CHI'S Thick & Chunky Salsa to marinate your chicken. Substitute for a spicier sauce if desired.

Desserts:

HERDEZ Ellen's Chocolate Chipotle Ice Cream: This chocolate chipotle ice cream is dairy free! You'll need an ice cream maker for this delectable dish that incorporates HERDEZ Traditional Chipotle Mexican Cooking Sauce into the mix.

Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies: Put an interesting twist on your traditional chocolate chip cookies by adding Wholly Chunky Avocado to your cookie batter.
