April 09, 2018 | Recipes
Whether you’ve been busy with chores or at work all day, it can be quite stressful thinking about what to whip up for dinner. Lucky for you we have tips on what you can put together quickly for a nutritiously delicious meal!
Something to Taco-bout
Tacos are incredibly easy to make, which is why it’s at the top of our list. The only thing that really needs cooking is the filling and even that will only take you less than 15 minutes. Here’s what you’ll need for the filling:
500g of ground beef/chicken
200g of diced tomatoes
Chilli powder (to taste)
1 garlic clove (chopped)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of chopped onions
2 tablespoons of oregano
Start by throwing the ground meat and minced garlic into a hot pan. Give it a quick stir before cooking it over medium heat until the meat turns brown. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and stir for another 2-3 minutes. After that’s done, put the meat aside.
To complete the taco, grab your tortilla wraps, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. You’re free to assemble it the way you want but we recommend the meat first, followed by the cheese, lettuce, and diced tomatoes. Feel free to add in some sliced avocados if you’re feeling fancy.
Here’s a less oily version of the typical pizza. It’s fresh, tasty, and most importantly, quick; you’ll be in and out of the kitchen in no time! Here’s what you’ll need:
Heinz tomato paste
This recipe’s so easy, you can get the kids to help out too. With the tortilla wrap as a base, spread the tomato paste evenly and then sprinkle the mozzarella cheese. Top it off with the pepperoni and spinach. Preheat the oven to 175°C and place the pizza in for about 5-7 minutes. That’s it!
Instead of snacking on nachos and cheesy dips, try this healthy and nutritious alternative. Very, very little cooking involved! You’ll only need:
Very simply, cut the tortilla wraps into triangles and then warm them up in a pan over slow heat. This will give the tortillas an extra crunch. Be creative if you want and try out other cool shapes and dip away! This works great as an appetizer or even something to munch one in between your main meal. Now pass the dip!
It’s a Wrap
Similar to the first recipe, you’ll only need to cook the chicken before and you’re pretty much ready to eat. For the chicken, you’ll need:
500g of chicken thigh/breast
1 teaspoon of salt
Half a cup of olive oil
Half a teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 cloves of chopped garlic
3 tablespoons of chopped onions
Start off by mixing together the salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper into the olive oil. After that add in the garlic and onions. Once they’re all mixed well, place the chicken in a ziplock bag or a bowl and pour the mixture in. Allow the chicken to sit for an hour or overnight if you wish.
After the chicken has been marinated, cook it thoroughly in a hot pan and set aside. Now you’re ready to assemble your wrap! Take a tortilla wrap and spread some sour cream over it before placing the lettuce and chicken. Sprinkle some chopped bell peppers and dig in!
