Thank you to Nature’s Touch – Welch’s for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
Cinco de Mayo is almost here and we like to honor the holiday by having a casual, fun lunch outdoors. I love creating vegan takes on Mexican food. Quesadillas traditionally contain cheese, so I wanted to shake things up by substituting avocado. Today I teamed up with Nature’s Touch – Welch’s to bring you this recipe for Loaded Vegan Quesadillas. These Quesadillas are a healthy and delicious way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
I’m a huge avocado lover so I was psyched that Welch’s created these frozen avocados! Fresh avocados are not only expensive (did you know that they raise in price even more during Cinco de Mayo?) , they seem to take forever to get ripe and then they spoil so quickly! Nature’s Touch – Welch’s are frozen-ripe and they come in convenient hand-cut chunks. I put them in everything from smoothies to salads to vegan desserts. You’ll never have to worry about having fresh avocados on hand again!
They’re also perfect for making these Loaded Vegan Quesadillas-
These Nature’s Touch – Welch’s are a great alternative to cheese in quesadillas. They hold the quesadillas together, much like cheese does, except they’re healthier (and Vegan!). These quesadillas cook up fast and they’re filled with delicious veggies- you can even make substitutes for whatever vegetables you have on hand.
What are your favorite Cinco de Mayo vegan meals? I’d love to hear!
