Dinner last night was especially tasty – one of my better experiments. I started by picking out the veggies I wanted to use (those that would spoil soon), and I knew I wanted avocado, but I didn’t have a set plan. I chopped up the veggies and sautéed them in 1 tbsp olive oil:
- 1 white onion
- 1/4 red bell pepper
- 1/4 yellow bell pepper
After that I wanted to add some protein. I was planning on using the chick’n I had in the fridge (note to mom: that is fake chicken). But I also was in the mood for some beans. So I added both. I rinsed the beans first, and added my protein to the mix.
And added 1/2 a packet of low-sodium taco seasoning. I love taco seasoning… of any kind. It adds a lot of flavor to anything you make.
And finally, the avocado. It was on it’s last leg, but it still tasted pretty good.
So good I even had seconds. But I’m still not a fan of the texture of chick’n (this was Smart Strips)… it’s just too rubbery. I need to find a better chicken substitute – or maybe just stick to beans.
In typical Pat fashion, he had to add cheddar cheese and buffalo sauce 🙂
Definitely on my short list for week night dinners – fast and delicious. I love avocado 🙂
