recipe.. I call it "dinner"

It was about that time that we started getting a little hungry so I scoured our pantry and fridge for a good meal.  To my surprise, I created a successful dinner.  In our house, successful means 4 out of 5 will eat it.  (You should know that the child that didn't eat it will ONLY eat bean and cheese burritos)

If you don't like to follow exact recipes then this is perfect for you.  There was no measuring involved in tonights dinner.

Gather supplies:
gluten free corn pasta
ground turkey
taco seasoning
frozen chopped spinach 
black beans
pinto beans
enchilada sauce (I used half of the can in the picutre)
some salsa
chopped olives if you want
(I didn't add any but some plain greek yogurt would be great... it taste like sour cream)

*boil water and cook the pasta
*saute onion
*brown meat
*add spinach 
*add taco seasoning
*get a large rectangular dish and add the pasta, add the meat mixture, add all the beans and enchilada sauce and throw some cheese in there.  Add whatever else you want that sounds good.  Mix it really good and top it with more cheese... I'm talking handfuls here.
*stick it in the pre-heated oven at 375 for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly

Our end result... "Dinner"


  1. Mmm I will have to try this! I've been eating gfree for 3 weeks now, and this looks great! I'm not much of a bean person, so I wonder if I will still taste it much with all the other ingredients?

  2. omgosh i will HAVE to try this! it looks so amazing and delicious!

  3. I've got a couple of little picky eaters too. Your meal sounds delicious but I'd probably have to eat it all myself. But on second thoughts it looks like a good meal to bring to our church potluck next Sunday...

  4. Yum! That looks like something that a few peeps in our house will eat.

  5. That looks delicious! fyi...I grew up on been and cheese burritos and I turned out ok. hahaha

  6. Stopping by from the Grow your blog {blog Hop}!

  7. I want to try this, it looks delish. minus the greek yogurt..greek yogurt and I dislike each other ha
