Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday. With April almost in the rear view, it’s time to focus on that all too fun May holiday, Cinco De Mayo. This year, most of us are celebrating at home but that does not mean we cannot have the most delicious meals. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite Meatless Meals perfect for Cinco De Mayo.
Meatless Meals for Cinco De Mayo
Why not start celebrating at breakfast? These Easy Muffin Pan Huevos Rancheros or Crunchy Black Bean Taquitos make a great presentation and are easy to customize. The kids can even help out with the prep.
A few of my reader favorites are this Sweet and Spicy Apple Jicama Slaw and this Tex Mex Brown Rice Salad. Good enough to eat on their own for lunch or pair as a side for dinner. Both make great leftovers to bring your lunch to work (at your desk).
Onto Dinner time! Easy Black Bean and Spinach Enchilada Lasagna is the best of both worlds in one casserole dish. The Best 3 Bean Vegan Chili can be made ahead in your slow cooker. Squash is always a great choice and these Roasted Squash and Spicy Black Bean Quesadillas are fun a simple. Don’t forget to pair that up with my lightened up Mexican Street Corn-a healthier take on the classic prep.
So now, my biggest questions to you are: What are you making for Cinco De Mayo? Are you a Mexican food fan like I am? How great is it that Taco Tuesday and Cinco De Mayo are on the same day? A two-fer. The perfect excuse to double dip into some guacamole! Beer or margaritas?
