I feel like a cheesy DJ when I say this…This one goes out to my hard working friends who want to make an easy dinner tonight. Seriously, this is a throw down. You will have many of the ingredients in your pantry already. It also qualifies as a vegetarian dish. And, if you are careful about the corn tortillas and salsa that you purchase, it can also be gluten free.
And, this is a good one. This might even be better on day 2 zapped in the microwave. This isn’t “the world’s best…” anything. It is just a solid, nutritious, filling and delicious dinner that is easy to make.
I adapted this recipe from a recipe in the Gourmet Our Way cookbook which is a cookbook put out by the Cascia Hill Preparatory School in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is a home-run of a community cookbook. My friend Courtney gave me this book and I will be forever grateful. I have so many sticky notes stuck in it that it looks ridiculous. It is easy to collect too many community cookbooks, or any kind of cookbook. I am definitely guilty of that. Often I go through one and see 4 or 5 things I want to try. That is not a good ratio considering how little space I have, and that my dining room is turning into a cooking research center. I have tagged no fewer than 20 so far in this book and I suspect I will end up trying far more than that. If you can get your hands on a copy of this, do it. They are reasonable, realistic, doable and delicious recipes.
