Cheese is a main ingredient in many of the most popular Mexican dishes, so in honor of Cinco de Mayo, we’re sharing some of our favorite recipes that let you enjoy these dishes without a single drop of dairy.

In case you were wondering, tequila comes from the agave plant. In our book that means it’s a plant-based wonder, maybe even running a close second to Vevan. Go ahead and pour yourself a margarita (if you’re of age, of course), grab some chips and veggie-fresh salsa, and let the fiesta begin!

Fiesta Rice Bombs

If you love rice as a main or side dish, here’s a new way to enjoy a favorite as a snack or appetizer. These cheesy rice balls, made with Vevan Ched, are deliciously dairy-free and vegan. They’re great party treats, too, so make a couple of batches and get ready for some fiesta fun.

Vegan Tacos with Zesty Cream Sauce

When a layer of zesty dairy-free cheese sauce is involved, there’s really no going wrong. These light and tasty vegan tacos feature chickpeas over a generous serving of cream sauce with a hint of heat, compliments of Vevan P’Jack. We suggest some tasty toppings, but mix it up and make it all your own.

Dairy Free Melty Nachos

Mounds of ooey-gooey cheese are a must for nachos, and Vevan dairy-free cheese makes these nachos melt to perfection. We’ll even teach you a trick for getting the best melt you can imagine for this delicious plant-based appetizer.

Spicy Stuffed Pasilla Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a favorite vegan dish, but this recipe puts a spicy twist on common bell pepper recipes. The creamy heat of Vevan P’Jack is a tasty complement to the smoky, roasted flavor of pasilla peppers and zesty vegan chorizo.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadilla

An unexpected blend of ingredients will make these quesadillas one of your favorite plant-based meals. The gentle heat of Vevan P’Jack-Shred is pure fire. Enjoy them plain or dipped in salsa and guac for even more layers of flavor.
