Dia De Los Muertos

So instead of a typical "it's November and it's Vegan Awareness Month!" post, I'm going to start a new  tradition of posting Mexican recipes for Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. It coincides with All Saints Day and is a Latin American holiday (celebrated in Mexico, Guatemala, and Ecuador among others!) to remember family and friends who have passed on.

It's also a day celebrated with food... and how can you not write about holiday food? Especially when it can be made vegetarian!

Though traditional goodies include chocolate skulls and pan de muerto sweetened bread stamped with a skull pattern, I'm posting a few Mexican-style dishes to help celebrate!
