Long weekend is almost upon us! I don’t know why but this week just really feels like it’s dragging on. I think the weekend will help me recharge and get amped back up.
Our little guy Tyson is growing like a weed! He goes for his first vet check up next week and maybe the vet will be able to tell us how about how big he will get. He seems to be a pretty quick learner too. We’ve already taught him to sit and shake a paw, it’s ridiculously adorable. If I can get a decent video of him doing it I’ll upload it.
A few nights ago I was starring in our fridge (I do this a lot) trying to figure out what to make for super when I had an idea. I had some Angus ground beef, salsa and tortillas so I decided to make some baked burritos! These were a big hit with Steve and I and were incredibly satisfying as well.
Here’s what I used:
- 2lbs Angus ground beef
- 3 tomatoes
- 1/2 onion
- 2-3 jalapenos
- taco seasoning
- Food for Life tortillas
- shredded cheese
- mashed pinto beans
Here’s how I made them:
- Browned ground beef and drained fat – set aside
- Diced onion and jalapenos (seeds removed but keep them in if you like it spicy!) and cooked for about 5 minutes until tender
- Add beef back into skillet along with diced tomatoes
- Seasoned with a few tablespoons of taco seasoning – you know me I just dumped it in
- Took some salsa and blended it in my magic bullet to make it more of a smooth sauce
- Spooned enough sauce over the bottom of my casserole dish to ensure the tortillas didn’t stick and then assembled the burritos
- Take tortilla of choice (we prefer Food For Life’s sprouted grain Ezekiel or brown rice wraps) and smear on mashed beans of choice, sprinkle a little bit of cheese, then put beef mixture on top and wrap it up
- Place in casserole dish seam side down and repeat with remaining wraps (we made 2 big ones and 2 little ones)
- Spoon rest of the salsa sauce over the top (enough so that it’s covered) and top with more shredded cheese if desired
- Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes covered and then remove cover and continue to bake until cheese is bubbly (I’m impatient so I just turn the broiler on for a couple minutes)
These were surprisingly filling. Steve has a big appetite and he said two big ones was probably too much for him. These are quick to toss together and it was a really nice change having them baked. Steve gave it the seal of approval so these will be entering our regular dinner rotation for sure.
Tonight I’m making BBQ chicken, corn on the cob and taters. Yummmm!
We’re trying to figure out what to do this long weekend as we have the whole weekend off (owning your own business that rarely happens). I know I for sure want to lay out in the sun somewhere and then we have some family stuff going on too.
I’ll be back later with a get fit video as well as some tips on accessory work you can do to prevent injury.
