Okay, so honestly I don’t know what “Mexican Cantina Style” is supposed to mean. I don’t think it’s an actual genre, but I make these vegan nachos using 2 different salsas, guacamole and extra crispy chips and the taste reminds me of the little hole in the wall taco stands/bars that were everywhere when I had visited Mexico City (pre-vegan).
Am I the only one who at one point in time never really understood the reason for the existence of calzones? I’m probably one of the biggest pizza fans you’ll ever meet, but the calzone concept has always failed me because in my mind you basically just fold a pizza in half and then TADAAAA!!!! it’s a calzone…so what?
And then it hit me while I was taking the first bite of the vegan calzones pictured above. I literally have like four to five pieces of vegan pizza in my hand at once. BUT WAIT THERES MORE…because the crust wraps around the toppings it acts as delicious crispy insulation, keeping my food hot until the last bite.
Well, we finally moved into the new place and what better way to celebrate moving into a new home than whipping up some delicious happy hour inspired grinds? Honestly it seemed like we had been eating out or grabbing instant noodle type food for like 2 weeks because of our lack of refrigeration. And yeah, its not like these vegan potato skins are extra healthy or anything but they were delicious and they went great with a few cold beers.
Fried sticks of vegan cheese here!!! Get them while they’re hot and melty and gooey!!! Finally these vegan mozzarella sticks came out the way I wished that they would have in the past. My previous attempts at making them were utter failures. I’m pretty sure it was mainly because I used a bad breading process. As I was making these though, I could tell they were gonna be glorious. What happy hour menu would be complete without breaded sticks of melty cheese?
