Eid-al Fitr is one of the most important religious holidays celebrated by the Islamic community. The festival celebrates the end of the month-long fasting called Ramadan.

Many delicious dishes are populating the internet. If you're planning to set up a feast or celebrate the festival, we've got you covered. We decided to list down some of the best Mexican-inspired halal and vegan meals you can whip up in less than an hour.

Easy Red Salsa

An easy, 10-minute red tomato salsa would be the perfect dipping sauce for tortilla chips and nachos. It would also make a great addition to a whole lot of other Mexican recipes like salads, enchiladas, and tacos.

This recipe by Minimalist Baker takes on a unique version of the salsa by using only eight ingredients and one bowl. It uses fire-roasted tomatoes for the best and most full-bodied salsa that is both smoky and complex. Other components include onion, cilantro, lime, garlic, and pepper to help make the dish richer.

The recipe makes eight servings and can be kept for up to a month in the freezer. Check it out here.

Carne con chile

The classic 'chili con carne' is made with the meat of turkey, beef, chicken, or lamb. In Mexico, the recipe often uses cubed beef in a rich tomato and beans sauce. The chili con carne is excellent when eaten with rice on the side.

This recipe from BBC would be a real show-stopper as it uses dried guajillo chilies, allspice berries, and chipotles en adobo. Home chefs can use hard halal cheese and halal diced beef to add more depth and flavor to the dish.

The recipe serves up to six people and only takes half an hour to prepare. Check it out here.

Mexican Fried Rice Nachos

Are you looking for a delicious vegan version of Mexican nachos? A Couple Cooks features a delectable 15-minute recipe of their vegan Mexican Fried Rice Nachos with cilantro cream. The recipe calls for olive or coconut oil, black beans, corn, and tamari. It also includes jalapeno peppers for that nice, spicy kick.

Home cooks can freely customize their nacho experience by adding guacamole, avocado, radish, and other toppings. The recipe yields four servings. Check it out here.

Mexican Quinoa Salad with Orange-Lime Dressing

Chefs looking for a vegan dish that's both healthy and filling will be delighted with a recipe shared by Minimalist Baker.

This 30-minute quinoa salad calls leafy greens topped with vitamin-rich food, including quinoa, black beans, and avocado. Orange segments are added to give the dish a burst of color and sweetness. The creamy orange-lime avocado dressing ties together this recipe that you'll always want on your table as suggested by an article.

The recipe is gluten-free and can serve up to 3 people. Check the recipe here.
