RECIPES THAT WORK FOR INSANELY BUSY PEOPLE!

I love to cook and I would like to be able to say that this part of my blog is dedicated to fabulous recipes that belong on a cooking show.  The truth is –  I don’t have time to be in the kitchen cooking for hours on end so I’ve learned how to cook on the run.  I try to use fresh ingredients where I can and I always try to make a quick salad with whatever I’m throwing together.  It’s also helpful to have key ingredients in the pantry and the freezer ready to grab.   I always have frozen fries, perogies, frozen veggie burgers, different types of fresh pasta(frozen), soft taco shells.    With the amount of hours that my husband and I spend working and running our boys to hockey rinks, gourmet dinners are not on the menu.  I’ll start off with what I made for dinner tonight –

Cheesy Black Bean Tacos

Ingredients:

Morning Star Chipotle Blackbean Burgers (I buy these from Costco- Meatless burgers- delicious)

Salsa

Shredded cheddar or whatever kind of cheese you like

1/2 fat sour cream or greek yogurt

1/2 red onion sliced

chopped tomatoes

Lettuce

mexican seasoning – whatever you have – burgers are quite spicy so you could leave the seasoning out

soft flour tortillas

Directions:

Defrost burgers

pour some olive oil or melt butter in frying pan – add burgers and chop up into small pieces – heat until hot right through.

heat tortillas

put all extra ingredients on a plate or in separate bowls for serving (cheese,sour cream, salsa, onion, tomatoes, lettuce)

have everyone grab a tortilla and fill it themselves and add a salad to complete the meal.

Voila you’re done and it’s a pretty easy clean-up!

You could just take the burgers – cook them on the frying pan and serve them up on a bun and add a fresh salad – real simple!
