Mexican Entrees

What's for dinner? Solve the dilemma with one of these flavor-filled main meal dishes.

Breakfast Tacos with Cheesy-Hemp-Scrambled Tofu

Rich in protein and minerals, these hearty tacos offer a delectable cheesy flavor thanks to the combination of nutritional yeast and hemp’s healthful fats. Allowing guests to assemble their own tacos makes this breakfast extra easy.

Taco Salad

Homemade refried beans make this a stand-out salad, but the canned version can be used in a pinch.

Black Bean Chilaquiles with Chile Verde

Black Bean Chilaquiles with Chile Verde

To prep the bell peppers quickly, stand each on end, cut the “sides” away from the core, and then slice the sides into strips. Cut strips into desired length or into small dice. If heat isn’t an issue, use medium or hot salsa, but try to find a bottled, chunky one for this dish.

Tempeh Tacos with Ancho-Lime Sauce

These balanced tacos offer mild heat and big flavor. Get all your serving ingredients on the table before putting together the tempeh filling—it cooks quickly.

Roasted Corn Quesadillas

Grated mozzarella folded into the corn mixture helps hold these spicy-sweet quesadillas together. Cut into wedges and serve as an appetizer, or pair with a salad for
a light meal.
