I declare this week… Mexican Week

Day 1: Black Bean and Plaintain Tostadas
These are black beans and plantain tostadas with crema (sour cream and soy milk), tofu queso fresca, guacmole, lettuce, tomato. We made our own home fried tostadas. Served with Annatto Spanish Rice.

Day 2: ‘Chicken’ Seitan and Carmelized Onion Tamales

Tonight’s dinner was tamales filled with seitan and carmelized onions and red chile sauce, topped with red chili sauce. Served with Leftover Annatto Spanish rice, and homemade refried beans.

Of course, what is Mexican food without Margaritas!!


One more pic, I loved how beautifully red this annatto oil came out. This oil was used to make the spanish rice:
