Tex-Mex Taco SupperThis menu adapts two traditional favorites like tacos and escabéche into a vegetarian dinner option.

Kid-Friendly FiestaCelebrate Cinco de Mayo with the kids by serving a nonalcoholic version of the adult favorite. These frozen "mock-a-ritas" use lemon-lime soda to give them a fun fizzy flavor. Pair with cheesy black bean enchiladas for a festive Mexican supper.
