I’ve been working on digging out of the same meal rut. Mostly because my middle is more willing to try new foods in the past few months, but also for my own sanity/desire/taste.
I made these recipes for dinner the other night and it was super easy!!!
My kids tend to shy from any meal that I make that has tomato and/or onion “chunks,” so I wouldn’t say it was an over the top major hit in my house, but it was a minor hit. I think it would go over well in another house.
The best parts were how easy it was, the simple ingredients and that leftovers will make awesome lunches! I used a bag of frozen peppers and onions, which saved me prep time cutting as well as money on the peppers this time of year. I buy chicken breasts from Costco and store in the freezer as well. All the ingredients were relatively cheap and I already had on hand.
The fajitas tasted good, though I might tweak the seasonings a little in the future, maybe add roasted garlic. The mexican rice came out really creamy, almost like a risotto, I was happy about the comfort food factor of that! I used low sodium chicken Better Than Bullion and water instead of the vegetable stock, which I think was actually a great change.
We served with flour tortillas, salsa, shredded cheese and shredded lettuce because that’s what we had on hand, and no one but me likes any other toppings, but guacamole (or straight avocado) and sour cream would be awesome!
