My Favorite Meatless Mexican Dishes

Since it’s Cinco de Mayo and Meatless Monday I thought I’d roll it all together in a flour tortilla and make a blog burrito – combining the two!

But first I need to give myself a little pat on the butt back because I went to yoga today!! Ommmmmm.

I always feel so much better when I go. I am determined to make this a weekly commitment! It’s good for me.

In other pat on the back news… I had a carton of ice cream in my shopping cart today and I put it back. Don’t get me wrong – I’m PRO ice cream. But, I need to clean up my diet and I’ve been slipping.

My Favorite Vegetarian Mexican Recipes:

1. Paloma – skinny cocktail. For when you’re too lazy or drunk to work a blender and make a margarita.

2. Tofu Tacos – only two ingredients to make the ‘meat’ and it’s so good!

3. Chile Relleno Casserole. Confession: I like this better than ‘real’ chile rellenos.

4. Mexican Pizza

5. Ortega Omelet

6. Black bean and corn salad – great for a BBQ or potluck! It’s not an authentic Mexican dish, but it involves salsa which means you can scoop it up with chips, which means you’ll need a margarita to wash it down…

    I would have to say mole is one of my favorite (central) Mexican dishes. I didn’t care for it at first, but my ex’s mom made it when I went to visit him in Cuernavaca and I have liked it ever since. People cannot fathom combining chicken and chocolate, but if it was good enough for Montezuma, it’s good enough for me! :)

    I really do LOVE margaritas. And I want the ones that are frozen, full of calories and sugar and really bad for you…which is why – since I am 49 – I don’t drink them like I used to in my 30s. But I indulged in two last night (a raspberry & a mango ) and they were both delightful! No regrets.

    You had me at Mexican food. This is such a good list of meatless Mexican dishes! Usually if I’m going meatless I just grab a bean or guacamole taco, but I’ll have to branch out and try some of these. I’ll take any excuse to eat more Mexican food!
