Celebrate Cinco de Mayo the Meatless Way!

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on the 5th of May – it’s a time to celebrate Mexican food and culture, and we’ll do it the Meatless way!

Cinco de Mayo history

The holiday celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on 5th May 1862.

The profile of Cinco de Mayo was raised in the 1960s and since then it has really taken off with parades, parties, mariachi music, eating of traditional Mexican foods and washed down with a few margaritas.

At The Meatless Farm we love our Mexican (or Tex-Mex) food. You can’t beat the spice and fresh flavours that are common with fajitas, tacos and quesadillas.

Cinco de Mayo Mexican recipes

So here are our favourite Meatless Mexican dishes, especially for Cinco de Mayo.

Meatless Mexican Tacos

Perhaps the iconic Cinco de Mayo dish. Set up a taco station with all the toppings you love – from guacmole and jalepenos to crunchy ‘slaw and salsa, served in your choice of a soft or hard taco.
