Cinco De Mayo is coming...

Well...Ive been playing around the kitchen lately, and I came across this awesome mexican dish. I am a huge fan of mexican cuisine, but besides guacamole and pico de gallo....there was little for me to go with if I wanted to stay raw. But now that I have my dehydrator again, Ive really branched out with my techniques. was time to make some tortillas. Basically a blend of raw corn, ground flax seeds, yellow pepper with some cumin and cayenne for seasonings. I had it in the dehydrator for about 5 hours and it was perfect.
For the filling, I did shredded yellow squash, guacamole, pico de gallo, and a great "refried bean" mix that I made from sunflower seeds, olive oil, sundried tomatoes, cumin and chili peppers. I threw all that in the food processor and let it blend until nice and thick yet creamy.
Putting this all together, I was thinking about how far Ive come from just green smoothies. Dont get me wrong, I love the simplicity of the smoothie, but when it comes to those special moments, the more complicated dishes really do impress.

Good times!!

That looks awesome! Arg! So jealous, we don't have a dehyrdater. lol
BTW.. forgive me for saying but you are stunning! I've just recently had a health scare so as a result, even though the doctor says I'm basically "fine", I've started looking into raw foods.
Just thought I'd say thanks for being an inspiration! I doubt, no matter how much raw food I might introduce into my diet, I'd have the genes to turn out like someone such as yourself BUT (seriously.. wow)... but hey genes aren't everything. hehe ;)
