Does anyone know any good books/websites with vegetarian Mexican-style recipes? About once a fortnight I fry up potato, onion, pepper, garlic, chillies and kidney beans, add some ground cumin and mustard seeds, salt, pepper and smoked paprika and top with grated cheese, sour cream and a fried egg. It's very tasty, but I think it's time to expand my horizons.

Ohh, I do love Mexican food!

Veggie fajitas are very good, and really easy to make. Just pan-fry some peppers, onions, and what ever else you think of (broccoli and eggplant {aubergine} are good too) and season them by putting some salt, pepper, cumin and mustard seed in a bowl and adding a little water, making a course liquid that you can pour over the veggies as they cook.

Warm some tortillas, and dinner is ready. You can also add your favorite salsa and/or cheese and sour cream (vegan if you prefer) and serve the fajitas with rice and beans. And for a good fusion meal, I sometimes put a little teriyaki sauce on the fajitas, which may sound weird, but it's really good.

As far as Web sites, I usually just Google the word recipe with what ever I'm looking for, say enchiladas. I find that any recipe can be made vegetarian--and most can be made vegan--by exchanging meat ingredients for veggies. Eggplant (aubergine) makes a great chicken substitution and beans work nicely in place of ground beef.

akiyama, all that recipe needs is some pico de gallo! :-)

Like Dodger, I find Mexican and Native American cooking to be very easy, inexpensive & tasty -and if you skip the cheese, fairly healthy. Recently I grilled a bunch of peppers (red, green, yellow) and then filled them with polenta and chipoltes and baked them - really tasty, with green salsa.

Akiyama's recipe sounds like what I call Navajo stew: potatoes/yams, corn, beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes - roasted in a clay pot, lots of cumin and enough cayenne to feel it. Good with naan - an indi/hindi thing or fry bread if you want to keep it on one continent.

I do a lot of vegetarian (vegan if you have soy cheese) Mexican and quasi-Mexican cooking. My favorite thing to do is take a large tortilla and put on a layer of cheese, then black beans, then some chopped onions and tomatoes (or salsa), then sprinkle some more cheese on top. You can top with another tortilla or not. Then put it in the oven on 350 degrees until the cheese melts. It makes a very delicious vegetarian quesadilla which even my in-laws (who don't understand vegetarianism at all) love.

We were going to have a cowboy/ Western themed party for my OH's birthday (October 24th), but we've had a leak in our flat so it has been postponed indefinetly until the problem is fixed ...

We would have made a meat chili for all the carnivores, but them wanted to make lots of delicious vegan food for them to enjoy as well :D

I will definetly visit the website! >#5

I know that this thread has been dead for a while but Viva Vegan just came out and I can't rave enough about how amazing the recipes are. I love Latin cuisine and this book is just the thing for my enchilada cravings.

I have to second lemontwist's recommendation for Viva Vegan I cook Latin Inspired food all the time and this book is next level.
