Feliz Cinco de Mayo! Is anyone commemorating/celebrating the event?

I'm cooking something Mexican style but not sure what as yet. I have a squash that I'm not afraid to use.

If I have time to stop and get some tortillas after work and going to the gym, I'd like to make enchiladas of some sort. Or maybe I can make a mole.

I did have a pepperjack grilled cheese with salsa for breakfast so that was quesadilla-ish and close enough to count!

In all truthfulness, tonight's probably going to be a Taco Bell night.

I will live through everybody else's posts!

I'm making the potato chickpea enchilladas from Viva Vegan and some berry daquiries based upon a recipe from Mexican Made Easy's Cinco de Mayo episode on Food Network. Oh and a salad because vegetables are important.

I am "celebrating" Cinco de Mayo for the first time ever, ha.
I plan to make flautas.

Just had a quesadilla fest with my coworkers for lunch. I brought my own tortillas and daiya, of course. Mmm chips and dips too.

I'm probably making enchiladas with leftover stuff from Taco Tuesday. I made "ground beef" with crumbled up tofu (broke it into little pieces until it resembled ground beef, then sauteed it with onions garlic and jalapenos until it was a little bit golden), seasoned with: paprika, cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, ketchup, liquid smoke. The omnis I served it to said it was similar to chorizo, which is cool I guess.

We're doing taco night! I mostly just used it as an excuse to do taco night. I usually forget about Cinco de Mayo, and I think Wikipedia told me it's really only celebrated by Americans, which leads me to believe that someone long ago decided to do the same thing I've just done and it caught on.

I have no idea what to eat! I can't go home because my work is right next to where the Forks Over Knives screening is at, so when I get off I have to find something to eat (not too far! not too expensive!) and then rush back to the movie theater and try to get good seats.

I don't think it does, but I'm a lover of Mexican food so figured I'd do something for it this year.

We had butternut squash and chickpea enchiladas, arroz Mexicana, baked tofu (previously marinaded with taco seasoning) and a side salad. Yum!

my roommates want to go out, but I'd rather cook at home! If I end up cooking for myself, I'll do a taco salad in a baked tortilla bowl. If they decide to stick around, I'm thinking chille rellenos and create-your-own nacho bowl. Plenty of cerveza, too :)

I ended up making the potato chickpea enchiladas from Viva Vegan and I added spinach too. I had a little filling leftover, so I made a taco while the enchiladas bake. SO GOOD.

Ok, all this talk inspired me to make my version of sopa, which is not soup like. I've been staring at a box of shells for a couple months so it was about time.

We had vegan nachos. Omni-family tested and approved, might I add!

Tortilla chips, Viva Vegan's refried beans, YRR's guacamole, birthday salsa, and tangy sour cream, ctate's queso, sliced black olives, diced onion, pickled jalapenos... it was intense. Haha.

I had rice and homemade refried bean tacos with avocado and tapatio. It was incidentally what I had around for dinner. I didn't really remember it was a holiday until a few hours ago. Oops!

We had black bean empanadas with jalapeños I pickled and canned earlier this year. Not Mexican exactly, but something I could make with the things I had in the cabinets. Pretty much the only thing I could make, besides plain rice or kasha or a can of peas, so best dinner choice whether its cinco de mayo or not.

I read about Americans talking of this Cinco de Mayo and I grasp it has some relation to Mexico but after that I am completly ignorant! Perhaps I had better look at Wikipedia myself.
