Good morning and Happy Tuesday! Today is starting off well for me with a …. and coffee!
You guys know I love my enchilada skillets and dishes right? See Shrimp Enchilada Spaghetti Squash Boats, Low Carb Turkey Enchiladas, Butternut Squash and Chicken Chorizo Enchilada Skillet, 20 Minute Summer Enchilada Skillet, and Shrimp Enchilada Bake.
What I made for lunch yesterday was remarkably similar but still different and super delicious so you know I had to share it with you! Just another enchilada variation to add to the dinner arsenal, why not? The picture is decent, but the overcast skies weren’t really providing the best lighting for spur of the moment recipe development. Either was the fact that my camera was dead so all I had was my iPhone to work with = blurry. Whatever, I made it work and it was delicious!
I left the tortillas out of this one and went for simple. You could easily throw this mix over brown rice, quinoa, or a low carb tortilla to add a bit of healthy complex carbs in. I just ate mine steaming hot in a bowl (that’s also how I brought it for lunch to work today along with some finger veggies like cucumbers, carrots, and tomatoes.) I’ve got to run I’m starting the day early, another test out today on the agenda. Slowly but surely I’m knocking out all the certifications needed to get fully up to speed, just takes a little time. Got an upper body workout and sauna time scheduled for tonight and I can’ not wait! Have a good one, and let me know if you try the skillet!
