Cauliflower Tacos with Lime Crema
Looking for a lighter alternative to traditional meat tacos? The cauliflower tacos with lime crema are a must-try! Roasted cauliflower florets are seasoned with a blend of spices that gives them a tangy kick. Wrapped in warm corn tortillas, they're topped with a zesty lime crema sauce that compliments the flavor of the cauliflower perfectly.
This sauce adds a refreshing element to the dish that balances out the heat. Serve the tacos with some fresh avocado and chopped tomato for a complete and satisfying meal.
Another flavorful addition to your Cinco de Mayo celebration is shrimp ceviche. This classic dish is a refreshing and healthy option that is perfect for warm weather.
To make shrimp ceviche, simply dice raw shrimp, red onion, tomato, and cilantro and mix them together in a bowl. Then, add lime juice and let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the acid to "cook" the shrimp.
Once the shrimp has turned opaque and pink, it's ready to serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tostadas. The zesty flavors of the lime juice and cilantro perfectly complement the sweetness of the shrimp for a truly delicious dish.
Sweet Potato Quesadillas
Looking for a vegetarian option for your Cinco de Mayo celebration? Look no further than sweet potato quesadillas! These easy-to-make quesadillas are full of flavor and nutrition.
These sweet potato quesadillas pair perfectly with our previously mentioned shrimp ceviche for a well-rounded Cinco de Mayo meal. For a meatless option, serve them alongside some portobello mushroom fajitas for a delicious and satisfying feast that will leave all your guests (and you!) impressed.
Portobello Mushroom Fajitas
These fajitas are a great alternative to traditional steak or chicken fajitas and are just as satisfying.
Start by slicing portobello mushrooms and bell peppers into thin strips. Sauté them with onions and garlic until they are tender and slightly caramelized. Add in your favorite fajita seasonings like cumin and chili powder for a burst of flavor.
Serve these fajitas on warm tortillas with your favorite toppings like shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, and fresh cilantro. For a little extra heat, add some jalapeños or hot sauce. Your guests will love the bold flavors and hearty texture of these Portobello Mushroom Fajitas.
