Another Cinco De Mayo Round-Up


Cheese Enchiladas1

Homemade cheese enchiladas…pretty much the best thing ever.



I always forget to do round-ups.? I don’t know why because I love reading them on other people’s blogs.? I may have done a Cinco de Mayo round-up before, in fact, probably because I would like to inhale Mexican food.

Like, insert an IV of a maragarita on the rocks with salt, please.

One of the best things about Mexican cuisine is its flexibility with vegetarian/vegan diets.? A cuisine built upon beans and a lot of vegetables?? Well, ok.? You don’t have to twist my arm.

I figured I would throw together some of my all-time Cinco de Mayo recipes here for you in case you are planning on getting a little festive this year.? Since the holiday falls on a weekend this year, I am sure that there will be ample opportunities for you to share some good food with friends.? Here are some of my faves:


Vegetarian Refried Beans1

Vegetarian Refried Beans…heaven in a bowl. I could eat this for days….



Breakfast, anyone? I loved the idea of the edible bowls here with this version of Huevos Rancheros.



Soup’s on! FINALLY…a vegetarian/vegan version of tortilla soup!



These Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas are one of my favorite meals ever. ‘Nuff said.



Looking for a flavorful appetizer? This Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta will knock your sombrero off.



Baked Bean Taquitos…and a link to another, yes another, Cinco de Mayo round-up (with some of the major favorites listed twice!)



Holy Grapefruit and Avocado Guacamole! An interesting citrusy spin on the classic (addicting) dip.



Skip the meat on your taco and try these Black Bean Tacos with Red Pepper and Corn Salsa.


Lentil Tacos1

…Or try these Lentil Tacos instead. Boom.


Bean Burritos1

You can never, ever go wrong with a homemade bean burrito!



Nachos can be reeeaaaallly good…and good for you. Like these Yellow-Eyed Bean Nachos.


Layered Taco Dip1

Layered Taco Dip…too much random goodness in this one.



A reader favorite….simple Black Bean quesadillas for a quick weeknight meal. Muchos besos.



If you are feeling a little fancy pants….here’s a Bean and Tortilla Pie that is like a tostada on crack.



One of my first posts ever (can’t you tell?)…my homemade Guacamole…which I make constantly.



My most recent post…in case you missed it. Really good for you Vegetarian Taquitos.



This Black Bean Salsa is even better the next day…and the day after…



Churro Cupcakes1

Life wouldn’t be complete…without a Churro Cupcake….with Dulce de Leche filling.


I think that about covers it.? I’ve made a ton of Mexican-inspired dishes, obviously.? As I was going through the archives, I couldn’t stop adding them-they’ve all been really delicious, and most of them are pretty simple to make, too.


Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!
