With Cinco de Mayo in just a couple days, I thought it would be timely to share some of my favorite recipes on Kroll’s Korner to celebrate!

First up is a yummy recipe I made for The Recipe Redux a couple months ago and they make for the perfect appetizer! 

  1. Lentil Won Ton Tacos 

Vegetarian Lentil Won Ton Tacos are a perfect way to include plant based proteins into your diet - these lentil tacos are a perfect party appetizer or turn it into a meal with a side of grilled veggies! | Krollskorner.com

Cinco de Mayo cannot be celebrated without some type of dip! This recipe is from back in the day when I didn’t know anything about lighting and food photography – haha! Still tastes GREAT! Try out my Vegetarian Bean Dip!

2. Vegetarian Bean Dip

Another “dip” that cannot be left out is salsa…of course! I made this salsa the other week in under 10 minutes using ingredients I had on hand to clean out the fridge and pantry!

3. 10-Minute Vitamix Salsa 

This 10 Minute Vitamix Salsa can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less! In the height of tomato season, this salsa is a must - plus with homemade tortilla chips you can't go wrong! |Krollskorner.com

Oh my gosh…this recipe is way old on the blog (hence the not so pretty picture) but it is still a goodie – Spicy Mini Bell Pepper Nachos! They were a hit, I am for sure making these this week…and you should too πŸ˜‰

I am sure most of you have tried the cilantro rice from Chipotle before…why not try making it at home?! Lower in sodium and still loaded with the same great taste!

5. Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice...perfect addition for Taco Tuesday or as a side dish! |Krollskorner.com

Let’s get into some of the main entree foods now…Chicken Tostada Bowls anyone?! I made this recipe in March 2015…you may be noticing a trend in my photos. Needless to say, I’ve learned a lot in the past few years…and still have A LOT to learn. I am sure I will look back at photos I’ve taken in 2017 and say to myself, “Haha – and I thought that was a good photo?!” All in all, it is motivating to see progress, big or small.
