A Couple Easy Recipes

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Hello everyone!! I somehow always tend to fall off the wagon but here I am again... if you're still around then please know that I GREATLY appreciate your loyalty. I've cooked a few good meals this week and I thought it'd be fun to share with you guys. I don't have a lot of detailed instruction photos but I promise to include every step you need to take. 

Please share feedback if you try these or have had them.. I love hearing what other people think or did to make the recipe work for their family. 

BBQ Chicken Tostadas 
{served w/baked beans & pasta salad}

This meal SERIOUSLY wow'd me. I did not expect to really care for the tostada shell but it truly made this meal perfect. So here's how I made it.. 

- Boil chicken. This can be breasts, tenderloins.. any chicken preference you have is fine 
- After chicken is boiled, shred chicken 
-Add just enough bbq sauce to cover chicken & toss together
- Scoop a spoonful onto the tostada shell. At least enough to cover the shell with a small edge left. 
- Drizzle mozzarella cheese & a little extra bbq sauce on top

Bake these @400 for about 10 mins. You really are just melting the cheese an heating the shell. I added some extra bbq sauce to mine after the oven and they were soooo delicious. This is a meal that I will for sure be archiving for later. 

Chili w/ Fire 
{served w/sour cream & saltines}

THISSSSS.... Gosh it was so delicious and flavorful. I will definitely be making this recipe again VERY SOON. I almost would say this could become a staple in the Trusty household. So here's how it made... 

- Brown 1lb. hamburger meat in the skillet then drain
- Toss meat in a large pan along with:
- 2 cans of black beans
- 1 16oz can of tomato sauce
- I can of crushed tomatoes (I used fire roasted)
- 1 can of light red kidney beans
- I can of chili beans
(I drain all of my beans except the chili beans)
- 1 can of sweet corn
- Add water to make the soup juicy 
- Texas Pete Hot Sauce (pour in about 3 teaspoons... I didn't really measure, oops)

I generally bring my chili to a boil and then cut it down to simmer. I served this spicy chili with sour cream and Saltine crackers. I did eventually do a bowl with shredded cheese so I'd recommend that also. It's such an easy, throw together after work, meal. 

Fajita Baked Fish 
{served w/ Mexican rice & fiesta salad}

I will definitely say.. this meal was completely out of my comfort zone. I am all for trying everything one but not normally if I am doing the cooking. I've been craving spicy foods lately... no, I am NOT pregnant, so I've been trying to find all things spicy on Pinterest. I came across this fiesta salad that looked SO GOOD & happened to have fish in my freezer so I kind of freestyled this recipe. 

The fiesta salad is made up of rotel, black beans, corn and avocado. It's so easy and so filling. I also want to make mention that this recipe and the other two above are all super affordable! 

But here is how I made my fish... 

- 1 bag of your fish preference. I chose a simple cod fish fillet from Walmart
- Seasoned fish with Creole, Garlic Salt, Pepper & HONEY!! 
- I steamed some peppers and onions and then added them to the pan about 1/2 way 
- Cook until fish has a golden crispy top. I cooked mine for about 35 mins at 350 degrees 

I don't think I want this all the time but it's a nice change from our normal routine. The rice I cooked was just a simple bag of "taco rice" made my Knorr. It isn't the healthiest option but it sure tasted good. 

I hope to share more recipes like this in the future. I haven't enjoyed cooking for a little while but I'm starting to get back into the groove of things. I you like seeing recipes then comment below to let me know some of your favorite recipes!
