Dear Pati,

My daughter has recently become very interested in mexican food. However, we are vegetarian and do not cook meat or fish at home. Do you have any recipes for vegetarian Taco/Tortilla/Quesadilla? We live in London. UK

Many thanks

Hola Vaish, Yes, Mexican food is full of vegetarian options & I have many recipes that are vegetarian, if you search around a little on my site. Here are a few you might like to try..
Plantain and Refried Bean Quesadillas:
Oaxaca-style Mushroom and Cheese Quesadillas:
Enchiladas in Red Tomato Sauce:
And these tacos are still great omitting the chorizo:
