(Showing a bit of love to the Mexicans who are going though a hell of a time right now)
Today is Cinco de Mayo and in Mexico, which is an annual holiday.
And to celebrate this Cinco de Mayo (5th of May) here are some Veggie & Vegan Mexican recipes found via About.com:
With just two pre-made ingredients, this recipe is super easy and super yummy, which are two of my favorite qualities in a recipe! Serve with in bowl with a plateful of corn tortilla chips for a quick, though not exactly authentic, appetizer.
Guacamole doesn’t have to be fancy to taste great! This recipe is simple enough for anyone to make, but tastes absolutely great. Make sure you are using a good quality avocado, because guacamole is all about the flavor of the avocado. Serve in a bowl next to your chili “cheese” dip and chips!
Webbie's Note: This is my particular favourite. Love avocado. Love Guacamole.
These mushrooms fajitas have just a few simple ingredients and a few Mexican spices, so they are quick and easy to prepare. Serve wrapped in a flour tortilla and topped with a spoonful of sour cream.
These are a sweet treat that kids and adults alike will love, and they take just a few minutes to prepare. Serve as a dessert, or as an appetizer with fresh fruit salsa.
Inspired by Mexican Hot Chocolate, made famous by the movie “Chocolat”, this vegan recipe uses both cinnamon and cayenne to get a spicy chocolate flavor. Yum!
