Ultimate List of Vegan Mexican Recipes!

Between my everlasting love of Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo approaching, I set out to make a small round-up of vegan Mexican meals. That little list? It turned into the monstrous 110+ recipes you see below 😊 I literally could not stop. SO. MUCH. DELICIOUSNESS. There are so many creative bloggers out there working their vegan magic that this quickly became my favorite round-up yet! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed assembling it. Many of these recipes I've already made and loved, and the rest I fully intend to eat my way through ASAP. If you have any more favorites, leave them in the comments below!

  9. I am having serious mexican food feels right now! Thanks for the awesome list!

    1. Hi Karin! Haha, I think that's my mindset all day, every day ;) Enjoy!!

  10. It's pretty great that there are so many vegan options for Mexican dishes. I'm lactose intolerant and I prefer to avoid eating meat, so having a list of vegan recipes I can whip up at home will make preparing meals a lot more fun. Those black bean lentil tacos look divine. Tacos are one of my favorite Mexican food items, so I can't wait to make this at home. Thanks for posting!

    1. Hey Deanna! Totally agree, vegan Mexican recipes make my heart oh so happy :D Tacos are always a good choice!! Hope you enjoy them!

  11. It seems like it's pretty easy to make Mexican food vegan-friendly. Maybe I should try to make some of these when my vegan friends come over to our house. I bet restaurants could easily leave out the cheese and meat in some of their dishes. I'll have to check that out to be sure, though. http://www.lares-restaurant.com
