Cinco de Mayo is a great way to not only celebrate with family and friends, but to also celebrate the wonderful flavors of the Southwest. Join Food for Life Nutrition & Cooking Instructor, Debbie Zimmerman, as she demonstrates a flavorful Cinco de Mayo-inspired menu that includes quinoa taco salad, chipotle sauce, 5-minute salsa, and guilt-free flan!
About the Recipes Covered:
Quinoa Taco Salad: all the familiar flavors of a taco salad but made with quinoa. This dish will be served in a tortilla shell bowl but can also be plated as a regular lettuce taco salad.
Chipotle Sauce: everyone loves a creamy spicy sauce on their tacos – and this is the vegan version. Easy to make and can be stored in the refrigerator.
Quick 5-Minute Salsa: who doesn’t love salsa and chips? See how the salsa is prepared and learn how to easy it is to make homemade chips without the fat, sodium and guilt.
Guilt-Free Flan: everyone loves a sweet ending to a great Cinco de Mayo celebration. This Guilt-Free Flan is nicely sweetened with dates and pure maple syrup.
This program is presented by Debbie Zimmerman and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
