These are my top 15 Vegetarian Cinco De Mayo Recipes from breakfast to desserts that are quick and easy to make for your celebrations!

Montage of vegetarian cinco de mayo dishes.

It’s that lovely time of the year again – Cinco de Mayo is around the corner! Isn’t it insane who quickly May has arrived? I’ve always loved Mexican food – uh hello black beans, corn, and my life fruit avocado! Then again, who doesn’t love Mexican food? Truthfully, I don’t need a reason to eat Mexican food – tacos and burritos are always on my eat list. If you’re celebrating like I will be, you’ll definitely be needing some great dishes. What better than tried and true favourites?

These recipes are easy to make, delicious and all vegetarian. You can easily modify the recipes that aren’t gluten free or vegan by swapping out gluten free ingredients, or using vegan cheese in place of cheese. No one will feel left out AND – best of all – it includes dessert! P.S. – That Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream by the way? A complete reader favourite (and a favourite of yours truly). Enjoy!
