We're continuing to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month until October 15.
According to Pew Research, one in five Americans in the U.S. are Hispanic. The month long observance is an opportunity to remember the region's history, while highlighting the culture and contributions of Hispanic Americans and their ancestors.
We had the chance to visit Chef Roberto Madrid at 'Mole Find Cuisine of Mexico' in Palm Desert to take a closer look at some famous Mexican dishes and flavors.
The Hispanic and Latinx heritage that is celebrated throughout the month is rooted in a variety of countries spanning from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, along with Central and South America.
A variety of Spanish dialects, languages, musical genres, dishes and more can be found throughout each Latin American country.
Chef Madrid shared that in just Mexico alone, different regions are known for signature plates, ingredients and flavors.
You can visit 'Mole' in El Paseo until October 15 to enjoy their 'Mole and Salsa Experience' as they celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
