Hey Everybody! How are you doing? If you follow my blog you know that I always try to prepare quick and easy meals that doesn’t require lots of work in the kitchen. Being now that I am 8 months pregnant and have a 6 and 3 year old, you can imagine!!! I still try to prepare healthy meals when I can. This particular meal is what I made the other day for lunch. I had some left over ground chicken (uncooked) that was previously used for ground chicken burgers in the refrigerator and decided to whip up something quick for lunch time. It can be time consuming at times and feel overwhelming when you are trying to plan meals ahead of time, but it can be done. Everyday is not the same, but there are times when I can easily whip something up just looking at what I have in my kitchen!!!!
In this particular Tasty Tuesday Tip, you will see that I used Blue Corn Chips!!! My husband bought some organic blue corn chips one day and they were not bad and I decided to try them out again, but I think I got a different brand than he did because the taste was slightly different, but they do contain about 2g of fiber per serving. You can go to your local store and give them a try. I usually keep salsa on hand, so some type of tortilla chip is most likely always in the pantry!!! However let’s get to this recipe:
- Blue Corn Chips
- Ground Chicken 1/2 lb
- Yellow and Orange Bell Pepper 1/4-1/2 cup each diced
- Onion (1/4 cup) diced
- Mild Salsa 1/4 cup
- 1 1/2 -2 cups of Raw Spinach
- 1/4 cup yellow squash
- Cumin (1 1/2 tsp)
- Garlic Salt (1 tsp)
- Black Pepper (1 tsp)
- olive oil (1 tbsp)
Take a medium saucepan and turn on medium heat and add olive oil. Next add ground chicken, cumin, garlic salt and pepper and let cook until no longer pink. (Stir Occasionally) Add all vegetables except raw spinach to meat and stir (reduce heat if need). Vegetables should be tender(5-8 minutes). Next add raw spinach and stir and let simmer with chicken and other vegetables (about 5 minutes). Take a bowl and add some blue corn chips and place meat mixture on top of chips. Add salsa and enjoy!!!!!
Note: If you want to omit the chicken, you can and make this a vegetarian meal!!!!
