We love this meal because it is easy to prepare, presents well and tastes delicious. It is easy to prep ahead of time and bake after a busy day of work. It's also packed with nutrients and a perfect way to use up some bell peppers!
This may seem like a far stretch, but we really love this unique spin on a Mexican favorite. Collard greens make excellent "tortillas" and allow you to make a nutrient dense version of your favorite enchiladas. This recipe pairs great with cauli rice or spicy slaw and some whole beans.
Anyone else LOVE the burrito bowls at Chipotle? We sure do, and so we made it our mission to make a nutrient packed version that you could enjoy with any Mexican leftovers. Feel free to get creative with this meal and change the flavors up often. Feel free to add any additional protein of your choice to this flavorful bowl.
Nothing beats a solid stuffed portobello. Once you find a good recipe for this, you hold onto it, earmark it, and make it every time that earthy craving for mushrooms comes along, or if they are on sale! And if you want to get all scientific on why portobellos? Why now? Here's some of their amazing nutritional benefits: they are chock full of three important B-complex vitamins: riboflavin for your red blood cells, niacin to keep your skin all silky smooth and keep your GI tract on track, and pantothenic acid. Panothenic acid helps your body with the release of energy from the macros in your food (protein, carbs, and fats). You can also play with this recipe based on what you are going for with what kind of cheese you want, go cheddar and add some salsa on top for a Mexican vibe, or add basil to the meat mixture and use mozarella to go more Italian. Lots of options here.
When it's a comfort dish they are craving at the Jaeger's house, this dish delivers! Take Taco Tuesday up a notch with this delicious Mexican casserole dish that is loaded with veggies and goodness! You could also make this with ground beef, pulled pork, or use black or refried beans to make it vegetarian.
