How about Rellenos con Papas?



Pan fry some potatoes, with some onions and Mexican spices and stuff them into some nice roasted and peeled poblano or long green chiles.



Here's a good rice dish that might work too:



4 cups cooked brown rice



1 onion, sliced



2 long green chiles



1 cup chopped tomatoes



3 cloves garlic, minced



1/4 cup pine nuts



1/2 cup chopped cilantro



2 tbs vegetable or olive oil



2 tsps salt or to taste



In a large skillet, saute the onion, green chile, and garlic in the oil over medium heat until soft.



Add tomatoes, and pine nuts and saute another 1-2 minutes.



Stir rice, cilantro, and salt into vegetable mixture, blending well.

If you like to bake, these are divine and very authentic! I make these for Cinco de Mayo every year. They are actually much better with the EB since they get to be a bit crisper than with butter.





Mexican Wedding Cakes -



1 cup (2 sticks) Earth Balance, room temp

2 cups powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup pecans, toasted, coarsely chopped

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon



Using a mixer, beat the EB until it is fluffy. Add 1/2 c powdered sugar and the vanilla, and blend well. Beat in the flour, then the pecans. Divide the dough in half, form each half into a disk, wrap each disk in plastic wrap and chill until cold - at least 30 min.



Preheat oven to 350. Whisk remaining powdered sugar with the cinnamon ina pie dish to blend.



Working with half the dough, roll by 2 teaspoons-fulls into balls. Arrange balls on heavy large baking sheet, spacing 1/2" apart. Bake cookies until they are golden brown on the bottom and pale golden on top, qabout 18 minutes. Cool cookies 5 minutes. Gently toss the warm cookies in the cinnamon sugar to coat completely. Transfer to a rack to cool completely. Repeat with the second disk.



Sift remaining cinnamon sugar over the top fo the cookies and serve.

I did a couple quick searches online-

http://vegetarian.about.com/od/speci...incodemayo.htm



http://lowfatcooking.about.com/od/pa.../r/mexrice.htm



http://www.vegcooking.com/cinco.asp



http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Tofu-Tacos-I/Detail.aspx



http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Veggie-...-2/Detail.aspx



http://www.living-foods.com/recipes/...emayoslaw.html





Some of these do contain honey, or cheese, but could easily be left out or substituted.



After reading your post it got me to thinking about some good vegan/vegetarian mexican food and I went on a search quest!



Enjoy!

Added onions, real garlic, no celantro, cornstarch, or sour cream (imatation.) and no hot sauce. plenty spicy with the peppers and cayenne.

Oh yeah....



I can't wait until tomorrow.



Do you know of any vegan Mexican beer? I've been getting mixed messages about Corona. We can have margaritas, sure, but I'm not a big drinker, and the other half digs him some brewski.
