Rosh Hashanah: Try this brisket chile con carne for a yummy Latin twist on a traditional Jewish recipe

This year's celebration of Rosh Hashanah started on sundown Wednesday September 4 and ends the evening of September 6. Rosh Hashana means "head of the year," which totally makes sense since it is a celebration of the new year according to the Hebrew calendar.

Observing Jews throughout the world will take the time to reflect on the past year and commemorate the new one. As with most celebrations, food is involved. Yay, for any and all occasions that involve delicious food.
