I celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by preparing simple dishes like this recipe for green chile beef and potato. Recipes, like this guisado, are passed down from generation to generation. The most memorable dishes are ones prepared with minimal ingredients. They are tried and true recipes that we prepare over and over again. Because of my passion for the family recipes, I have become a mentor in my family. The results are dishes prepared with lots of love. Recipes that are passed down to the next generation. This is what keeps the tradition alive.

Guisados are very traditional in Hispanic homes. They can be composed of various ingredients. Guisado describes a dish that involves sauteing, browning and simmering.
I shared family recipes with several family members over the years. My niece, Crystal, in particular has developed a passion for wanting to learn the family recipes. She has 3 young boys that love to help with the recipes. I encourage you all to get your kids and other family members involved when it comes to family recipes especially.
