I tend to lean towards Mexican dishes whenever I prepare my lunches for the week on Sunday because well it is hard for me to get sick of it. Now I do have to switch it up sometimes so I thought I would share what I made this past Sunday evening.
What you will need
Sun dried tomato quinoa
black beans (drained)
rotel tomatoes and green chilies
low fat cheese
Preheat oven 350'
Start by chopping up your veggies
After your ground chicken is fully cooked add your veggies and let cook for about 5 minutes on high. (you might need to add a little water)
Then add your taco seasoning and a cup of water. Let cook till fully absorbed.
While that is cooking, cook your quinoa.
Then pour in the bottom of your baking dish.
Then add half of your meat and veggie mixture,
1/2 of your rotel tomatoes and black beans,
1/2 of the enchilada sauce,
and 1/2 of the cheese.
Let bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and golden.
This was my dinner for Sunday evening. I had also cooked some fresh cabbage from the farmer's market to go along with it and added some fresh salsa to my casserole. Delish!!
Like I mentioned yesterday today is the day that I start training for my very 1st 5k. I am pretty excited about it because I have always wanted to do one but to be honest I have always been to lazy. So I have set the date. September 14th I will be going to Concord, NC to run in my first 5k. I finished my first round today and I feel pretty good.
