Here's a very easy dinner idea that's vegetarian (vegan if you omit the cheese and Greek yogurt), healthy, and delicious!
2 medium potatoes (sweet potatoes would be great as well!)
1 green pepper
1 clove of garlic (minced)
can of black beans
can of corn
red pepper flakes
and any other types of spices you like - even taco seasoning could be substituted for all of this- Trader Joe's has a delicious mix available!
corn tortillas (I prefer Ezekial brand)
and the MOST important part - plain, non-fat, Greek Yogurt (more on this later)
1. Chop all your veggies (peel the potatoes) and throw them into a big bowl.
2. Add in the black beans, corn, and all the spices and mix. Now, when we cook we don't always follow a recipe and when it comes to spice we are heavy handed...so just add spice to suit your taste!
3. Heat up a little oil in a pan and throw everything in there. Cook on medium heat until the potatoes get a nice, golden crisp to them. If you want to get fancy you can cook the onions and garlic first with the spices. That's what Hank usually does but see that glass pan in the photo above? We initially tried to bake this concoction in that, but found it didn't work, so we switched the pan, which was great! But because of that little hiccup we weren't able to brown the onions, etc. Either way must work though because the end result was delicious!
3. Then, make your tacos pretty with all of the other stuff! Cilantro, lime, tomatoes, whatever floats your boat. And let me continue my little plug about non-fat Greek yogurt. It is the BEST substitute for sour cream, ever. Hank even prefers it. You get great health benefits, no fat, and it tastes so good. And once you go this way, you'll start to want to put it on and in everything! Dips, dressings, icing...the list goes on.
