Easy Spanish Thanksgiving Recipes - Spanish Sabores

Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving may not be a Spanish holiday—but as an American living in Spain, I’ve developed quite a few Spanish Thanksgiving recipes over the years!

I always love putting a Spanish twist on classic American dishes, and many Thanksgiving recipes lend themselves especially well to Spain-inspired flavors. My Manchego mashed potatoes recipe makes this traditional side even better by adding Spanish cheese, and chorizo- and garlic-packed migas would be an excellent swap for stuffing.

I hope you’ll give some of these recipes a try on your next Turkey Day—and even if you don’t celebrate, they’re great for any festive winter meal!
