Empty the Fridge Stuffed Peppers

I want to apologize right off the bat because there is no real recipe for these stuffed peppers. 🌶 Occasionally, I will sift through my fridge for veggies that are starting to go bad.

Today I found half a yellow onion, spinach, arugula, green onion, and shredded carrots. 🥕 I threw all those in a pan to sauté with some olive oil and decided I wanted to add more veggies. I grabbed more spinach and this pepper and came up with the idea to stuff the peppers. I added brown rice and Fillo’s Mexican mayocoba beans to give it some substance, I stuffed the peppers and baked them at 375 F for 10 minutes! 😋 I topped the peppers with a pinch of shredded cheese and boom! A delicious dinner ☀️

Homemade Chicken Nuggets


Today’s lunch is homemade, hand breaded chicken nuggets with 1/4 of a watermelon 🍉 (lol I am aware of my watermelon problems we don’t need to point them out). Homemade nuggets and tenders are SO much easier than they are portrayed to be. You can ABSOLUTELY make these yourself 👏🏼

1. Toast two slices of whole wheat bread. Allow to get well toasted.
2. Add toast to blender with 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp chili powder
3. BLEND 🌪
4. Add blended mixture (breadcrumbs) to a bowl
5. Crack 2 eggs into another bowl. Whisk eggs 🥚
6. Take chicken tenders or nuggets (about 1 Lb worth of meat). Dip chicken into egg, then dip into bread crumbs. Make sure the nugget is coated in breadcrumbs
7. Place into air fryer. Fry on 400 for 10-15 minutes (or put in oven on 400 for 12-15 minutes)
8. Let cool and enjoy! ☀️

Vegetarian Burrito


VEGETARIAN BURRRRITO 🌯 I have been dying to test my burrito wrapping skills again after I embarrassed myself with my chicken Caesar wrap (its about 7 posts back if you want to see 🙈) I think I redeemed myself 🌱


Ingredients:

1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
3/4 cup corn
1/2 cup black beans
Chopped cherry tomatoes (as many or as few as desired)
2 tbsp salsa
1 chopped green onion
1 cup rice (I used a Spanish style rice, but any work!) Mission Foods carb balance wraps
Diced avocado
Shredded cheese

Recipe:

1. Chop onion and add to greased sauce pan on medium heat
2. Add all other ingredients and cook until combined – about 5-10 minutes
3. Open wraps and place on flat surface
4. Add mixture into center of wrap and wrap tightly. Add in diced avocado and shredded cheese. There are videos on YouTube about how to wrap, I use the chipotle method
5. Warm another sauce pan on medium heat. Make sure to grease the pan
6. Once warm, place your wrapped burrito, crease down, onto the pan
7. Let the crease seal and the tortilla will get crispy. Flip and let the other side get crispy
8. Slice and enjoy!!
