The weather seems to be playing tricks around here lately. Warm and then cold and then back again. I am sure we will finally be able call it patio season soon enough though! Patio season means finding any excuse (besides the nice weather) to invite over family and celebrate with friends!


Cinco De Mayo is coming up - if you don't celebrate, you should! It's a great way to learn and also teach the family about Mexican culture, especially the food! 

Que Pasa has everything you need for a Mexican-style celebration with Que Pasa tortilla chips and salsa! You can share them with family and friends or create some yummy, Mexican-inspired recipes! 

Serve up some Cinco De Mayo goodness with these Zesty Lentil Tacos


Z
Ingredients
·         Que pasa corn tortillas (or flour tortillas of your choice) 
·         1 Tbsp coconut oil 
·         1 yellow onion, minced
·         1 can brown lentils, drained
·         1 small jar green chile enchilada sauce (or try this Roasted Tomatillo Salsa)
·         ½ tsp onion powder
·         sea salt
·         2 limes
·         Feta cheese (optional)

Spicy Sriracha Cream Sauce:
·         ½ cup plain yogurt (dairy or alternative) or sour cream
·         Sriracha to taste – depends on how spicy you like it!
·         Juice of 1 lime

Finishing Fixings:

·         Pineapple tidbits – left fresh or grilled
·         Red onion, thinly sliced
·         Cilantro, chopped

Directions

1.      Add coconut oil to a medium-size frying pan over medium heat. Saute minced onions until translucent and add the whole can (drain first!) of brown lentils. Saute for 2 minutes more and add green chile enchilada sauce, sea salt and onion powder.

2.      Prep the spicy sriracha sauce sauce by combining yogurt (or sour cream) in a small bowl with lime juice and sriracha, stirring well to combine.

3.      Build your tacos by first heating your tortillas, adding lentil mixture followed by pineapple, red onion, cilantro and spicy sriracha sauce.

  39. I love enchiladas and quesadillas. When I make them at home, I add lots of vegetarian ingredients. It is best if I have a big salad so I don't eat too many, though it is easy to do!
