We’re in full on “prepare for guests” mode at our casa, so I didn’t do much cooking this weekend. I did make some rather wonderful mexican pizzas on Saturday, but we ate them so fast the photographs would have been of the empty plates. So, in lieu of a recipe or cooking tip from Yours Truly Always and Forever, I’ve put together a list of super awesome Cinco de Mayo recipes for you to check out! These are some of my favorite bloggers ever, so this is also a bit of a crush post. I can admit that.
First up, Cashew-Less Vegan Queso from Minimalist Baker. Dana Shultz is without a doubt my blogging hero. Every recipe she creates is drool-worthy, and I’ve made several of them multiple times. In fact, I adapted her recipe for Vegan Cheez Its when making Nooch-Its! I am making this recipe myself for our Cinco de Mayo fiesta, and I’m so confident that it will be delicious, I have no hesitations recommending it to you.
Next, these Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce from Oh She Glows. Angela Liddon not only has one of the most successful vegan food blogs out there, but she also recently released a cookbook! I was lucky enough to receive the cookbook for my birthday a couple months ago, and can’t wait to make everything in it. It’ll take me a while, but it’s definitely on the to-do list.
Do you love Breakfast for Dinner? I know I do! These Breakfast Nachos from Isa Chandra Moskowitz at Post Punk Kitchen look AH-MAY-ZING. I’ve yet to find a recipe of Isa’s that I didn’t absolutely love. She also just came out with a cookbook, and I also can’t wait to make everything in it.
Ok, so last week was awesome. I’ve only posted two recipes, but have gotten such great feedback and support so far. I simply can’t wait to bring you more. Ok, well I can wait, but I don’t want to. Such is life. Thanks so much for coming on this ride with me! I would love to hear from you – what would you like to see here? Any recipe requests? Kitchen conundrums that you need answered? I am here. If you happen to be of the Pinterest persuasion, I would be tickled pink if you found it in your heart to pin any of the posts that you enjoy. If not, that’s cool too. I still like you. 🙂
Happy Cinco de Mayo! May your guacamole be plentiful and your margaritas bottomless.

Beth, you’re the sweetest! Thanks for doting on me and for sharing the queso. Much love and HAPPY CINCO DE MAYYYOOOOOO! ;D
You’re so welcome! Thanks for remembering your late night inspiration and turning it into a delicious recipe! I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who does such a thing. I think in terms of potential recipes, and I couldn’t turn that part of my brain off if I tried. As if I’d want to anyway. Hope you had an awesome 5th of May! 🙂

Yummy, can’t wait to try these. Especially the eggplant queso! The breakfast tacos look amazing. Too many steps for me so make sure to send out an invite to all of us when you make them. 😉
Oh, the queso turned out SO GOOD. And it’s so low-calorie, just what this girl needs! I might try the breakfast nachos this weekend – I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
Can it be cinco de mayo everyday?
If you want it to be! There was avocado in the pasta sauce tonight, does that count? 😉

Yummy, Beth! Thanks for this collection; they all look scrumptious! I’m especially intrigued by the eggplant for the queso dip, and I’m sure I will make it sometime!! I am constantly on the lookout for low-calorie (and budget friendly) ways to make sauces, dips, etc. creamy, and this definitely cuts the mustard!! I’ve never cooked with eggplant before (having heard never-ending complaints about its odd flavor and, most of all, its off-putting texture), but I always kind of wanted to make something with eggplant just to try it, and now this makes me want to try more than ever. And what a genius way to use eggplant! Thanks for the brainwave, minimalistbaker! 🙂
Hannah, we can make the queso when you’re here and convert the naysayers into eggplant lovers. 🙂
Hannah Elizabeth says
Yum! Love it! I’m in! 😉 I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it for like the past week (yeah, I know…I’m totally food obsessed), so sounds like a good idea to me! 😛
