Orange Margarita (2 mins)
Orange you glad this is the last margarita on the list? If you want an easy vegan margarita to make, try this the recipe here!
Vegan Ceviche (2 hours + Gluten-Free)
I had a request from an Edgy Veg follower to make vegan ceviche, so I used chayote to mimic the texture of ceviche! Chayote is from Mexico and is a type of summer squash but with the taste and texture of a cucumber and potato combined, kind of like jicama. It has a light flavor and crunchy texture, making it a very interesting substitute for fish when cooked and marinated properly. Get the recipe here!
Best Vegan Queso Dip (20 mins + Gluten-Free)
Potato’s natural starch blended with cashews and soy milk will give you the gooiest, velvety cheese texture. The Nutritional yeast and queso seasoning mix-ins will give you a queso dip so rich and flavourful, you won’t miss the dairy. Get the recipe here!
Strawberry Mango Salsa (5 mins + Gluten-Free)
This spicy strawberry mango salsa recipe is a colourful and fresh way to use up extra fruits and vegetables in your fridge. Bright, fresh & a little picante, this tasty salsa has mango, strawberries, avocado, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and lime! It’s the perfect snack with a side of tortilla chips to dip into. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Esquites (Corn Salad) (5 mins)
This Mexican street food-inspired corn salad is a simple recipe for a classic side or snack. You can make esquites with canned corn if that’s all you have at home, but I recommend corn from the cob. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Enchiladas (57 mins)
Vegan enchiladas like these are full of spices and easy to sneak in extra veggies. By chopping everything small, you can add greens, peppers, and any other vegetables that may need to be used up from your fridge. Perfect for a Cinco De Mayo that falls in the middle of the week. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Fish Tacos (30 mins)
Learn how to make delicious breaded vegan fish tacos out of mushrooms! These vegan tacos are easy to make with simple ingredients you may already have in your pantry. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Crunch Wrap Supreme (23 mins)
Okay so this one is Tex-Mex and is just about as far removed from Mexican cuisine as you can get… but it’s tasty and easy and would pair well with other (actually authentic) recipes for Cinco de Mayo. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Chili Cheese Burrito (44 mins)
Again, this recipe is tasty and simple but do not confuse it with actual Mexican food. It’s a copycat recipe for the Taco Bell chili cheese burrito. This burrito combines chili-flavored vegetarian ground beef, refried beans, and vegan cheddar cheese in a tortilla. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Gordita Crunch (10 mins)
I’ll show you how to turn 9 simple ingredients into a flavourful, crunchy gordita crunch taco wrapped gently in a layer of cheese and soft gordita you can make at home. It’s not homemade Mexican food, but it sure is better than what taco bell is serving. Get the recipe here!
Jackfruit Tacos (2 hours 30 mins)
Oh carnitas, the delicious designer taco everyone is raving about. The word “Carnita” literally means “little meats”- how fitting! It is a traditional Mexican recipe made by simmering pork in lard until tender, usually about 3-4 hours until it simply falls apart. Lucky for you, the vegan version is much easier! Get the recipe here!
Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce (25 mins + Gluten-Free)
Classic nacho cheese sauce is runny & bright orange with a cheesy, salty flavor. I’ve experimented with so many ingredients and discovered that this potato-carrot-seasoning combo makes the most delicious and creamy vegan nacho cheese sauce. Get the recipe here!
Vegan Huevos Rancheros (50 mins)
If you’re not feeling breakfast tacos but you’re in the mood for Mexican flavours in the AM… may I introduce you to the most underrated champion of breakfast, Miss Huevos Rancheros. Get the recipe here!
Easy Vegan Fajitas (20 mins)
Realistically dinner after a long day at work should not take more than 15 minutes. Fast and easy dinners do not need to mean less flavour! Quick and easy can be vibrant, abundant and knick your socks off yummy! One of my favourite go-to dinner recipes is mushroom fajitas. Get the recipe here!
