11 food truck-inspired recipes to try at home during Hispanic Heritage Month

Food trucks have been around for a long time. But the way we know of food trucks today — tech-savvy, gourmet, culinary havens — didn’t really start until 2008, when a West Coast food truck company had the genius idea of merging Korean and Mexican cuisines and tapping social media as its main means of communication.   

In the past, food trucks, and taco trucks (loncheras), were considered places where you were able to get food quickly and affordably. Today, however, food trucks have become the go-to place for world-class chefs to prepare in a casual setting some of the best bites that have been influenced by many cultures and cuisines—one of the most popular being Hispanic food recipes.

With Hispanic Heritage Month under way, this is a good time to celebrate America's multicultural roots and cross-cultural inclusiveness by rounding up some great food truck-inspired and Latin-inspired recipes.
