Thanksgiving is not only about the food, but also about the experience and the moments you create around the dinner table. Latinos don't usually need a particular reason to plan a family get-together, but Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to combine some of our Latin flavors with an American custom.
In most homes, the Thanksgiving menu often features classic recipes like turkey and mashed potatoes. To help you host your perfect Día de las Gracias with a Latin twist, we asked Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza, owner and chef of Barrio Café in Phoenix and Barrio Queen in Scottsdale, AZ to share one of her favorite turkey recipes for the holiday.

When it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving, we all have our own ideas of a traditional meal. While your non-Latino friends will be celebrating the holiday with a buttered turkey, sweet potato casserole and a classic stuffing, your table will look just a little different.

Thanksgiving is the biggest food holiday of the year and not the time to be changing the menu! After all, your family looks forward to this day all year. But as the cook, you may be a little bored with the same old turkey and mashed potatoes. So why not give one element of your Thanksgiving menu a Latina twist? Or, go crazy and feed them a whole new dinner menu, you can always go back to boring next year.

This is a good way to get a little spice going on the Thanksgiving table, though this smoky-spicy cranberry sauce would be equally at home on a simple piece of grilled chicken in the summer. Just be sure to throw some bags of fresh cranberries in the freezer when they're in season. (This recipe makes about 2 1/4 cups sauce.)

This rich and spicy sweet potato gratin makes a great addition to the Thanksgiving table. And it's especially good if you're travelling to someone else's house for the big meal. It can be made early in the day and reheated when you reach your destination. After baking, cover and chill. Reheat, covered, in a 400°F oven until hot, about 15 minutes.

Yes, everyone knows Thanksgiving is all about the turkey, but one way to step up your game is with a kick-ass side like this sausage-stuffed squash. For the Spanish chorizo, try Pamplona Auténtico Chorizo Picante Español (amigofoods.com).
