Fiesta time for Cinco de Mayo! Margaritas, daiquiris, guacamole, tempeh tacos, cashew cream cilantro-smothered burritos, salsa verde, tomato rice, sticky sweet plantains and more!
Oh Mexican fiesta, I love you. Seriously, I’m obsessed. Mexican food is my weak spot. My fave. My ultimate food craving. Just writing this post is making me crave guac and chips. Growing up in Santa Cruz Cali I was spoiled by amazing authentic Mex cuisine. And the fifth of May was always a huge production at my school nestled in the rolling hills Santa Cruz – an area rich in Mexican tradition and culture. So now when Cinco de Mayo rolls around I become like a child on Christmas morning. Santa? No thanks, just pass the guac. Fiesta time – gone vegan!.. UPDATED all day!
