Grab your sombreros, whip up some margaritas and get ready to dance around your living room; we’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Las Vegas with style! Even though we may still be eating most of our meals at home, that shouldn’t stop you from eating fabulous tacos on May 5th. We’ve got the answer for a vegan Cinco de Mayo celebration.
What is Cinco de Mayo?
Before we get into what you can serve at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta, we will answer your burning question…what exactly is Cinco de Mayo, besides the 5th of May? Cinco de Mayo is also called the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, which celebrates the 1862 Mexican military victory under the command of General Ignacio Zaragoza over the French forces of Napoleon III. Mexicans across the world celebrate the day by showing pride in their Mexican heritage.
A FIESTA of flavor for your mouth!
Amazing food and refreshing beverages have long been associated with Cinco de Mayo as a way to celebrate Mexican culture. Tasty tacos have been a symbol of Cinco de Mayo and we are continuing the tradition with our own twist on the taco.
We’ve got a unique and original Melita’s taco creation for you to try on Cinco de Mayo; Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos! Move over iceberg lettuce wraps, there’s a new kid in town that goes by the name of Butter Lettuce. These tasty tacos will give regular old lettuce wraps a run for their money. Butter lettuce leaves are large enough to pile on a myriad of toppings, including quinoa, lentil picadillo and marinated citrus portobello. We are bringing you all the taco flavor without the gluten or meat! Our tacos will keep everyone with special dietary needs happy; gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
Gluten-free and Vegan Tacos
Our vegan taco meat is the juicy and flavorful citrus portobello. If you are looking to leave out the gluten, these tacos are for you, since the shell is a fresh, crisp butter lettuce leaf. In addition to the portobello, cucumber salsa, cilantro, guacamole and pico, add zest and zing! Salivating yet?
Dairy free Dessert
Not only do these Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos taste amazing, they will allow you to save room for dessert! And we have a Cinco de Mayo dessert that you do not want to miss; Tres Leches Cake. Saturated and dripping with a sweet frosting glaze, you will not want to share this cake. Isn’t that what a Fiesta is all about? Indulgence and satisfaction…we won’t tell if you eat two pieces!
