McCormick® Flavor Forecast® Announces Second Quarterly Flavor Trend of 2019: 'Mexicana Vegana'
Mexican food is one of the most beautiful, fresh and flavorful cuisines and continues to grow in popularity, with more than 237 million Americans who enjoyed Mexican food and ingredients in 2018. Also, more than ever, consumers are leaning into meatless meals with a conscious focus on the environment and their wellness goals.
"It's the two together, looking at Mexican food from a vegan lens, that appeals to Americans," said
With classic bold spices and ingredients found in Mexican cooking like smoky dried chilies, bright citrus, cumin, garlic and onions, vegan dishes can deliver the uncompromising flavor everyone wants. Simple techniques like shredding eggplant and mushrooms to mimic pulled pork and crumbling garbanzo beans to replace chorizo sausage makes great meatless fillings for tacos, tortas and tostadas.
"We developed new Mexican vegan recipes to encourage at-home experimentation. There's a cauliflower queso sauce, butternut squash tacos al pastor, no-churn vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and more," said
