I don’t know about you , but sometimes by Friday I am a little worn out and not always inspired to cook a fabulous meal. I keep in my back pocket a few easy recipes for just such a day. They have to be fast, easy, tasty and of course have some nutritional value to them! You may think that is a lot to ask of such a meal–I disagree. All it takes is a little foresight to have in the fridge the “staples” you use the most of and some tortillas, pitas, or naan bread in the freezer.
Here is what Madeleine and I had for dinner tonight–I made a little extra so someone can have a treat for lunch tomorrow too!
(The quantities will vary depending on how many you make, and what you want to add in to these guys–this is an approximate value to make 4.)
8 fresh or frozen flour tortillas (I made an extra batch last week, and tossed them in the freezer)
2 cups grated cheese (any kind–you know I use marble-Surprise!)
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
3 chopped green onion
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tbsp salsa
…anything else you want to add–leftover chicken or turkey, tomato?
On a cookie sheet lay 4 of the tortillas. Top each with some of the salsa. Top that with some of the cheese, the toppings of your choice and a little more cheese. Lay the final 4 tortillas over and bake at 400 degrees for about 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 5 min before cutting into quarters and serving with salsa, sour cream and/or Guacamole (quite possibly my favourite thing to eat…next to cake that is!)
