Poblano peppers  are just a mild chili that goes great with any type of Mexican or Southwest cooking.  It makes a wonderful vegetarian side dish to accompany my chipotle chicken with mango avocado salsa...yum!!  If you are a vegetarian or participate in meatless Mondays, this dish is great as a meal.  The prep is quick & easy, so you can prep earlier in the week and just bake it off when you want.  It last for about 3 days prepped in the fridge.  So, all you have to do is after putting cheese on the top, cover and store in fridge for later in the week.   This is a great vegetarian dish that packs in the protein!  Enjoy &  Happy Eating!  🙂

Are you looking to bring a little fun to your dinner table ?  Try these Skinny Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas.  They are versatile…you could use any veggies, meat & beans you prefer.  I bake off 2 trays every time I make these because no one minds eating the leftovers later in the week.  If 2 trays is a bit much for your family you can save half of the meat/bean/veggie mixture and store it in the freezer for next time you want a quick meal.  Top the enchiladas off with garnishes of your choice!  Enjoy! 🙂  Read More…
