Mexican Fiesta Night

1 BLOG 010

So this is yet another super fast, easy healthy meal that I kinda just threw together.

Clockwise from the top:

  • Steamed (frozen) veggies ( red peppers, carrots, snow peas, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, yellow zuchinni)….
  • Kashi Fiesta Pilaf ( Instant in the pouch, all whole grain with black beans and roasted corn)

  • Look at those Vegetarian Refried Beans! I enjoyed these thoroughly with reduced fat mexican cheese!
  • Hot Sauce.. Frank’s…
  • Taco Chicken (minus the taco because I wanted more beans and rice for once!!)
    • I browned ground, lean chicken in the skillet with a minced clove of garlic, and half a diced onion. Once it was cooked through, I used an Ortega seasoning packet ( the blue brand- the yellow brand has MSG- I don’t wanna be MSG’d!!) with a little water
    • I added half a can of crushed tomatoes with garlic
    • dashes of hot sauce

Jeff had all of his inside a whole wheat tortilla.

Hi girl thanks for your comment, I know you haven’t disappeared because I have been reading your posts:) I have been swamped too (hence the one post a week) so just know that even though I don’t always comment, I’m still enjoying your yummy posts (as well as your comments on nutrient metabolism II, just finished that last quarter). Take care!

This looks just awesome! I love Mexican food!! I almost prefer having it as is vs. in a tortilla because you can really enjoy each and every flavor! Hope you’re having a nice day girlfriend!
