About Mexican Made Meatless
Hola and hello! Welcome to Mexican Made Meatless, a recipe blog dedicated to transforming classic Mexican dishes into modern vegan, vegetarian delights.
What You’ll Find on Mexican Made Meatless
You’ll find recipes that are healthy, delectable and as close to the traditional meat-based versions as possible. Plus completely new combinations and flavours you’d maybe never considered before.
I’m a self-taught cook who loves good Mexican food but doesn’t want to spend all day in the kitchen — unless it’s for tamales, they are totally worth it!
The recipes you’ll find here are easy enough for a beginner cook, yet inspiring to even a cocina pro!
Why Mexican Made Meatless?
August of 2020 marked my 5 year anniversary of when I stopped eating meat for good.
During my life I have off-and-on tried to become a full time vegetarian. But I never succeeded for more than a couple of weeks before going back to eating meat.
In all of those years I instead made sure to eat several vegetarian or vegan meals throughout the week. For a time this made me feel better. But the idea, the want, always stayed with me.
When I hit my first 6 month mark, I felt something changed in me. I felt myself able to fully dedicate my eating habits to this new lifestyle.
So when I marked my one year anniversary, I decided to share my journey and create this blog. I then too stopped blogging at Spicie Foodie and created Mexican Made Meatless.
I decided to focus on Mexican cuisine because this is the food that runs through my veins. The food that has nourished me and my ancestors for centuries.
I am thrilled to share with you these culinary twists. The challenge of transforming a carnivorous cuisine into meatless versions has been inspirational and so much fun!

About Nancy Lopez-McHugh Author of Mexican Made Meatless
I am a professional freelance food photographer and videographer with 10 years food blogging experience. My online career began with my blog Spicie Foodie.com.
I have published two books, An Epiphany of the Senses, an eclectic collection of spicy recipes from around the world. As well as Yummy Pics, a popular how-to guidebook to the art of photographing food.
Additionally my recipes have been widely published by such noted entities as About.com, The Huffington Post, NBC Latino, Woman’s Health, Gourmet, VegNews, The Guardian.
I’m also an official blogger for the worldwide ‘Meatless Monday’ campaign.
I was born and raised in a traditional small town Mexican environment, in which my education in Mexican food preparation began early by watching the passion that my mother, grandmother, and aunts all put into their cooking sessions.
Though the culinary bug took time to fully infect my soul, when it finally did it instilled in me a fiery passion that has lead me to devour everything about the culinary arts and helped me get to where I am today.
My current experience with food is entirely self-taught, and occasionally touching up on what I have learned from family and friends in their traditional Mexican recipes.
