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
Morning Star Chipotle Blackbean Burgers (I buy these from Costco- Meatless burgers- delicious)
Shredded cheddar or whatever kind of cheese you like
1/2 fat sour cream or greek yogurt
1/2 red onion sliced
mexican seasoning – whatever you have – burgers are quite spicy so you could leave the seasoning out
soft flour tortillas
pour some olive oil or melt butter in frying pan – add burgers and chop up into small pieces – heat until hot right through.
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!
