Alright, once again I have to apologize for my lack of updates lately.  I’ve still been cooking just not posting :(.  These pictures were actually taken on January 24th, to give some perspective on the severity of my procrastination.  I actually haven’t been trying as many recipes now that I’m back in Pensacola because I have to buy my own groceries and I decided to be on a budget this month.  There is a really great website if you’re interested in creating and following a personal budget plan http://www.mint.com.  My mom and I had this awesome meal back in January and its really easy to throw together in a pinch.  It’s also a very flexible recipe (as seems to be the theme of my posts) so feel free to tailor the ingredients to your own taste.

Ingredients:

Canned Chicken

Can of pinto beans (pinto beans with jalepenos is the best)

90 sec rice pouch (or leftover cooked rice)

Mexican cheese

Salsa

Directions:

Mix ingredients together, heat and eat.  It may work best to microwave on a medium heat setting so the faster cooking ingredients don’t overheat.  Patient people can certainly heat each food separately and then mix together.  I didn’t include amounts because that depends on how much you have on hand and how much you want to have in your meal.

You’ll also notice that I actually used chick peas in lieu of pinto beans because that’s what we had in the house.  (I wouldn’t recommend the chick peas, it wasn’t quite the right flavor blend).

 

Breakfast Pizza Mexican Style December 30, 2009

I’m not going to repost the breakfast pizza recipe but these are much better pictures than I posted before.  I only had my iphone available for pictures the last time we made this.  As I stated in the previous post, the recipe is versatile.  Here is one example of a different flavor combination for the pizza.  We replaced the pork sausage with Chorizo (which is basically the same thing but it has some awesome mexican spices).  We used a mexican cheese blend and replaced the hash browns with diced red bell peppers.  I also sprinkled some dried cilantro on top to complement the mexican spices.  I’m at home with my parents and I have access to a wider selection of kitchen accessories, which is why we were able to create a round pizza this time.  Its a fairly simple recipe to whip up, so if you don’t mind waiting 25 minutes for the pizza to cook, I highly recommend giving it a chance!
