Tacos de Canasta Filled With Spicy Potatoes and Cheese
Tacos de Canasta, literally, “basket tacos”, are made to travel. The story goes women in Mexico would place them in a basket lined with plastic bag and paper, and potato and cheese were two common, basic ingredients that stood up well to the journey and are ideal for consuming during Lent.
Easier Pandebonos (Colombian Cheese Bread)
Pandebonos are beloved in Colombia. Outside their home country though, the cheese used to make it can be hard to procure. This version by our contributor Sweet y Salado uses mozzarella cheese and the result is just as delicious! Enjoy some pandebonos on their own or with a meal.

Quesadillas entomatadas are lightly fried corn tortillas filled with cheese and covered in a warm, freshly-prepared tomato sauce. A simple meal with vegetarian ingredients that represents the spirit of Lent, but can also be enjoyed year-round.
