Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos

Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos by Alison's AllspiceThese buffalo blue cheese vegetarian taquitos were created completely on a whim.   Oftentimes I buy a few extra ingredients that aren’t on my grocery list at the store, simply because they are on sale. One night when I needed a quick weeknight meal, I riffled through the fridge and found some 6-inch tortillas, so I whipped up these taquitos .  I had seen a vegan buffalo taquitos pin on pinterest and thought it looked like a fantastic idea, but I hadn’t even look at the recipe. As it turned out, my version is loaded with tangy blue cheese, as well as a healthy does of vegetables! Continue reading

Zucchini Corn and Bean Enchiladas

Zucchini Corn and Bean EnchiladasHappy New Year everyone!  This is my first post of the new year, and I’m so excited to share my plans for the year.  As I shared in my best of 2016 post, I recently made a move into a house where I have lots of space.  Now that I have space, I’m very excited to be able to establish a large garden.   Last year I joined a CSA because I knew I wouldn’t get a garden planted in time.  I did get to grow a few plants, but this year I want to see the garden expand with lots of vegetables, including some spring and fall crops.  One of my favorite veggies to grow is zucchini, which is the inspiration for today’s recipe.  Zucchini corn and bean enchiladas are simple and easy, especially if you have zucchini growing in your garden.

Avocado Tostadas

Tacos are considered a kings food in my house.  Tostadas are flat tacos, right?  Well, not really.  Tostada means “toasted.”  It’s kind-of hard to toast a taco because all the ingredients are wrapped up inside it’s crunchy shell (or soft shell depending on your preference).  Tostadas and tacos have very similar (if not the same) ingredients, therefore, we are making room for toasty tostadas at the king’s table!  Especially these avocado tostadas!
