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.
