Cinco de Mayo is this Sunday, which means fun fiestas! Just because this one of my favorite food holidays, doesn’t mean I can’t eat Lean & Lusciously. I have many recipes that will give you the Mexican fix you are looking for, without the guilt.
1. Prairie Bean Tortillas: Similar to fajitas, but made with flour tortillas rather than corn tortillas, this is a quick, easy meal to prepare.
2. Black Bean Pineapple Salad: As cool as the Gulf of Mexico breezes, this refreshing bean salad can be served on a bed of lettuce or in a bowl with taco chips. It also makes a great salsa!
3. Mexi-Corn: The sprinkle of fresh Cilantro at the end of this really makes the dish! Its unusual flavor really enhances the flavors of Mexican food.
4. Strawberry Ice-cream in a Flash: There's just a trace of fat in a frosty, cold dish of this easy, ice cream-type dessert. Just throw a few ingredients in the blender and enjoy. The perfect ending to your Cinco de Mayo Meal.
