With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, you may be craving some good Mexican food.  From tacos to burritos to enchiladas and more, Mexican food can be a tasty choice.  The good news is that it can also be a meatless choice!  While you may think of carne asada, pollo asado, carnitas and all the other meaty options on most menus, many of the more traditional Mexican foods rely on vegetables, legumes and whole grains as main ingredients, often in place of meats.
