10 Minute Meal

Thank you for all of your suggestions in yesterdays post. I loved them all!

Sometimes you just need a good, nutritious meal that can be made in a short amount of time. The husband and I had somewhere to go, and we had about 40 minutes to make and eat dinner before we had to leave the house.

I cranked the burners on high, and got ready to make some sort of taco/burrito thing.

I started with a chopped red pepper and an onion. I put a lid over it until they became soft. The lid helped them cook faster, which is always a plus!

Next, I started working on the meat part of the tacos/burritos. I only had ground chicken on hand, so I cooked that up and added some taco seasoning.

While that was cooking, I pulled out all the toppings: fat free sour cream, 2% mild cheddar cheese, salsa and tortillas.

Before I knew it, it was time to eat! I quickly assembled my first taco/burrito.

The husband saw me taking pictures of mine, so naturally, he wanted a snap shot of his too.

It was fun trying to watch him roll it up. He loaded it up so much, that it was difficult to keep together!

A peek inside!

From start to finish, making the entire meal took about 10 minutes. The husband and I both loved it-it was quick, easy and tasty!

Question of the Day:
What are your favorite taco/burrito toppings?

Until next time!

Black olives and sour cream!!!! I love wraps. My hubby has the talent of being able to wrap them so they stay closed and tight ... I don't. He always has to do the wrapping in my house!

Great looking taco/burritos! I'm like your husband, load it up and then it falls apart! Lately I've been into bean tacos and I add a ton of veggies, greek yogurt (as sour cream) and salsa and hot sauce!!
