Although I love planning parties and cooking, there are some days when I get overwhelmed and forget to plan a big to-do. That's sort of what's happening with me this Fourth of July, when I seriously just haven't had time to prepare anything special.

It's no big deal, though, because I know that making delicious food doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. In fact, some of my favorite Latin recipes just couldn't be easier. Whether you're making a slow cooker rice and beans (so easy!), sofrito grilled bread for your burgers, grilled veggies with salsa verde as a side dish, a cinnamon-sugar coated grilled pineapple for the easiest dessert EVER or a watermelon keg (AMAZING!), then take a look of these recipes and make this the easiest July 4th you've ever had.
