In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo (5th May) is a time for fiestas! On 5th May Mexico celebrate their victory over a French invasion by having parties which involve mariachi music, margaritas, beer and lots of food. With this in mind for the May food round-up I thought that I would share with you a selection of some delicious Mexican inspired recipes.
One of my favourite vegetables has to be avocado and this recipe from Everyday Healthy Recipes is a delicious way to enjoy avocado. The avocado with salsa and black beans not sounds delicious, but also looks great!
If you are looking for a chilli with a difference then Sneaky Veg has got the perfect dish. This veggie chilli with cornbread crust will certainly please the whole family!
For any Mexican feast, guacamole is a must have. After trying my quick and easy guacamole recipe on Hijacked By Twins you will not go back to pre made again!
If you love tacos then you will love these lamb tacos from Easy Peasy Foodie. Forget chicken or beef these tacos will definitely tickle your taste buds!
If you want a veggie taco then these tacos from Alison?s Allspice will keep your guests coming back for more! Her black bean street tacos with radish corn salsa will certainly keep the fiesta going!
When you think of Mexican soups gazpacho immediately comes to mind. But The Veg Space has created something a little different. Her smoky Mexican quinoa soup is full of goodness and the taste of Mexico!
Looking for a Mexican meal to take out? Then The Crazy Kitchen?s Mexican jam jar salad is what you need. These tasty jam jars full of flavour will keep you longing for lunch time to arrive!
Last but not least is this slow cooked pumpkin and mixed bean chilli from Mummy Mishap?s. Slow cooking the chilli allows the flavours to develop and leaves you with a rich, irresistible sauce!
What are your favourite Mexican dishes?
Unfortunately this is to be my final round-up for BritMums. I have got a new job which means my time is even more precious. But do not worry I am leaving both the Food and Baking round-ups in very good hands! But you can still find me over at Hijacked By Twins.
