For me, that means COOKING healthy foods and EXERCISING at least 4 times a week! Last night, I was craving mexican foods and went to target on the hunt for frozen green pepper blend. I found them, but they were not on sale. :( Right below them was my new favorite thing (of the moment)! It was an Archer Farms brand "Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean" blend. This blend ROCKS! It was on sale this week for $1.66 for the bag! The blend included black beans, corn, green pepper, red pepper, onion, and south west spices! I simply sauteed these on the stove in some cooking spray and waited to assemble my "Mexican Pizza." This meal was quick, healthy, easy, and budget friendly!
|Finished Product! Mexican "Pizza" and Spanish Rice!|
1 Low Carb Tortilla (I like Mission Low Carb Taco Sized)
1 Wedge Laughing Cow Queso Fresco & Chipotle
1/2 Bag of Southwest Inspired Corn and Black Bean (I seasoned extra with just a little Mrs. Dash Chipotle Blend)
2 Tbsp Sour Cream (Light)
Toast tortilla in small pan then spread cheese on tortilla. Next, top with black bean mix and sour cream! Enjoy!
Meanwhile, I prepared a super easy LOW FAT Spanish rice to go with my "pizza"!
