Recipes
Cinco de Mayo is just a couple days away, so I wanted to round up some of my favorite recipes that will help you celebrate! Think spicy breakfast tacos, Mexican pizza {just like Taco Bell but so.much.better!}, and a pineapple-jalapeno marg for some happy hour libations. Mexican food is a favorite of many, so I couldn’t pass up sharing some of my favorite healthy, Mexican-inspired recipes I’ve created over the past year. Time to celebrate! Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

3 Festive Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Spicy Breakfast Tacos

Buenos días! Start your celebrations with some easy, gluten-free breakfast tacos!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 free-range eggs
  • 5 grape tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 avocado
  • 2-3 gluten-free tortillas {I use tortillas made with almond flour from Siete Foods! Read more about them in my Mexican Pizza blog post.}

Directions:

  1. Heat up your tortillas in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes. These heat up pretty quickly, so keep an eye on them. They also get crispy, which I love!!
  2. Grease pan with coconut oil, and make your scrambled eggs.
  3. Slice tomatoes, jalapeno and avocado.
  4. Top tortillas with eggs, tomatoes, jalapeno and avocado.
  5. Enjoy!

Homemade Gluten-Free Mexican Pizza

I made this Homemade Gluten-Free Mexican Pizza with my new absolute favorite tortillas from Siete Family Foods. These are made with almond flour so they are grain-free, gluten-free, and vegan. What I love about these is not only the taste {seriously so good!}, but how crunchy they are when baked in the oven. Highly recommend! Then for the ingredients, I used black beans which gives us some fiber and plant-based protein, fresh tomatoes for vitamin C, black olives because I love olives {and because they are a great source of healthy fats and vitamin E}, green onions for vitamin K, and jalapenos for extra spiciness and extra vitamin C and capsaicin. Then right out of the oven, I added fresh arugula and a dollop of avocado + lime cream! Perfect for lunch or dinner! Click HERE for the full blog post + recipe!
