Dinner: Chili topped Potato

3 years ago

The other night I honestly wasnt in the mood to cook I had a pretty rough day and throwing together a meal was the last thing I wanted to put the time or even thought into. Because I wanted to make good food decisions I opted for taking some of my homemade beef and bean chili (see the recipe here: http://shannonslifestyle.blogspot.com/2013/09/beef-and-bean-chili.html) out of the freezer. I plunked it into a large pan with about ΒΌ cup of water and let it melt down and come to a light boil over medium heat. When just about done, I opened a 4 ounce can of tomato sauce and added it in, stirred it up and dinner was served. Very little effort, truly no thinking and it was exactly what I needed.

I washed a potato and put it into the microwave to cook up. 5 minutes later, my potato was done, so I cut it up into pieces, added it into a trivet, sprinkled it with pepper and a dash of salt, then topped it with 1 cup of beef and bean chili. I threw a serving of garden salad alongside the dish, topped it with 1 tablespoon of fat free dressing and dinner was served. Simple, delicious and overall easy!

Do you rely on frozen leftovers when youre in a bind?
