All you have to do is wrap this deliciousness in soft tortillas and top with cheddar, sour cream and avocado. Add your favorite salsa or hot sauce and enjoy!Cauliflower Rice Burrito BowlThis recipe is full of pantry and freezer staples I always keep in our home. That’s why this meal is perfect for a last-minute dish idea that is both healthful and tasty! For those of us that are cutting down on carbs, cauliflower rice is your best friend. I always keep a few bags on hand for meals like this. It keeps me from reaching in the pantry for the rice.Fish Tacos with Avocado-Lime CremaTacos are not just served on Tuesday’s in our house. In fact, we eat them about 2 times per week. They are super easy and with the right ingredients, they’re pretty darn healthful. These fish tacos are exactly that – healthy! The smoky flavors of cumin and paprika pair perfectly with this tangy sauce making each bite a perfect balance of flavors!Puerto Rican Arroz con PolloI love recipes that are one-pan meals. It just makes sense when you are a working family with busy evening activities! This dish is made with homemade adobo seasoned chicken and savory rice. If your looking to cut those carbs, use cauliflower rice instead.Chili-Cheese Party NachosTwo of my favorite food staples are corn tortilla chips and Jalapenos. More often, than not, the phone rings and before I know it, family and friends are headed to my house to watch a game and eat. Chili-cheese nachos are a quick go-to meal that takes only 30 minutes to prepare. I’ll let you in on a little secret I have been known to make an extra batch of this health chili and freeze it so that when the phone rings all I have to do is thaw and warm on the stove top, saving even more time!
To make it fun, (and keep yourself out of the kitchen when company arrives) I prepare all the toppings ahead of time. Grab a few bowls and fill with various toppings for your guests to add to their nachos.
