Recipe #1

I'm so excited to have recipes trickling in from all of you!! This is going to be so fun. Here is one of the first submissions-

Dawn's Taco Skillet Dinner

(serves 4)

1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb vegetarian ground "beef"
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 16-oz bag frozen "southwest" style vegetables
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 16-oz jar salsa
2 cups coarsely crushed tortilla chips
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet fry meat in oil for 6 minutes, or until brown, stirring to crumble.
Stir in frozen vegetables, black beans and salsa. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 6 - 8 minutes.
Sprinkle with tortilla chips and cheese, cover and cook 2 more minutes.

Serve. Or if you want to be really schmancy, sprinkle dish with chopped cilantro and serve with corn bread and sour cream on the side.

The very best thing about this meal is that you can have everything for it in the pantry and the meat in the freezer. Nothing fresh required!

Thanks Dawn! This sounds delicious!

well you saw what we ate for diner! LOL! The interesting twist on ours? Chris used left over swedish meat balls, partially drained from their sauce, in the stroganoff...it was actually pretty good, if hamburger helper doesn't make you gag ;)
