Chicken Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

We love recipes where you get to “stuff” something. They are just so much more fun to eat; for both kids and adults alike! Not only are recipes like this easy to make, but they are also a great way to sneak in extra nutrients.

Our Chicken Black Bean Bowl comes ready with tender chicken, high-fiber black beans and rice, and lots of Mexican flavors. Serving them atop a sweet potato helps amplify the nutrition by serving up vitamins such as A and C, which are essential in keeping our immune systems strong. And who doesn’t want a healthy immune system during the winter? Being sick is just no fun!

Sweet potatoes are also very cheap, so you can create this well-rounded meal for 2 for less than $3.00 per serving! You can prepare the potatoes in advance to make the meal come together even quicker, too! And let’s not forget about meal prep. You can very easily prepare this recipe in advance and pack it for lunch during the work or school day.

But, the topping combos don’t need to end with our Chicken Black Bean Bowl! You could also use our Steak Black Bean Bowl as we did in this recipe here. Or give your potatoes a breakfast twist by using one of our Breakfast Scramble Bowls. Brinner is one of our favorite things to serve up around here!

So, now the real question is, “Dinner or breakfast”? Which would you rather make this for?

Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty Tacos

These Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty tacos are loaded with flavor and light on calories. 

Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty Tacos

Unapologetically just made the best healthy egg white breakfast tacos you will ever see. Yes, we said breakfast tacos! However, these simple, high-protein tacos would be great for lunch or dinner, too!

We lightened up this recipe by using our low-calorie egg white patties. Each patty contains only 35 calories, but a whopping 6g of protein. This makes the egg white patties a great way to add volume to your usual breakfast taco without a lot of calories.

The game-changer in this recipe is the southwestern chipotle seasoning that makes the egg white patties feel like an authentic Mexican ingredient. It’s kind of like adding taco seasoning to your ground beef when making traditional tacos, but much better!

You could opt to go with more traditional toppings like shredded cheese, tomato, and lettuce. But, we wanted to add a fresh burst of flavor with the cilantro-lime sour cream! The sour cream really takes these to a whole new level!

The fun never ends!

The best part is that the southwestern chipotle seasoning and the cilantro-lime sour cream make a lot of extra, so you can enjoy this recipe on repeat! If you are serving these for a big party, both ingredients should be plenty to go around!

Are you ready to get cooking and enjoy #TacoTuesday with us every day of the week?

Southwestern Zucchini Enchiladas

Four ingredient Southwestern Zucchini Enchiladas are your answer to a fast weeknight dinner or a fun spin on breakfast! 

Southwestern Zucchini Enchiladas

Trying to cut back on carbs? Or trying to sneak in more vegetables? That is not a problem with these low carb zucchini enchiladas! One thing we love it to eat with the seasons. One of our favorite summer veggies, zucchini, is at it’s prime right now. So, what better way to enjoy it than with this easy enchilada recipe?

This vegetarian take on Mexican enchiladas is made with only 4 simple ingredients. Our Southwestern Scramble bowl is the main attraction followed by fresh zucchini, enchilada sauce, and cheese.

Traditionally, this recipe would be considered a main dish. However, we have given this a breakfast twist. Our Southwestern Scramble bowl is full of egg whites, salsa, black beans, and corn to give these enchiladas a hearty filling.

If you’re not following a low carb diet, pairing this dish with a couple of pieces of toast is a nice way to round out the meal. Or better yet, enjoy some of the sweet fruit that summer has to offer, instead.

Beyond just breakfast.

The flavors of enchiladas always hit the spot, but this simple recipe is guaranteed to keep you satisfied for hours on end. Should the craving hit for an enchilada at night, this recipe works perfectly!

Breakfast enchiladas aren’t meant for breakfast only. Serve them for a fast weeknight meal, too!  Brinner is a meal that we love to have one or two nights a week! Double or triple this recipe and then get the family involved! They can slice the zucchini or put the filling in. Getting the kids into the kitchen will help teach them how easy it is to prepare a healthy and tasty meal.

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes are a fiesta of flavors! Filled with egg whites, tangy salsa, black beans and a pinch of chili powder. These low carb, gluten free tomatoes are delicious for breakfast or lunch. 

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes

These Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes are lovely for breakfast, brunch, or even a light lunch. They are tasty, healthy, and stunning. And, who doesn’t love to eat pretty food?

We especially love this recipe in the summertime when the fresh garden tomatoes are firm, ripe and bursting with sweet tomato flavor. There is just something about the natural sweetness when combined with the salty flavors in our Southwestern Scramble Bowl that makes this recipe to die for!

If you have ever had baked or broiled tomatoes, then this is a must try recipe! Now, we know not everyone loves the texture of cooked tomatoes, so if that is the case, you can always serve these in a raw tomato. Just make sure to cook the scramble bowl thoroughly and top with grated parmesan cheese, instead.

Cooked tomatoes are also thought to be very healthy – perhaps even healthier than raw tomatoes. Cooking seems to concentrate the levels of the antioxidant lycopene in tomatoes.

If you are serving these for breakfast or brunch, we recommend serving them with a slice or two or toast and fresh fruit. If you are trying to stick to a low carb diet, then a crisp garden salad is also a nice pairing.

Lastly, if you are into meal prepping, these will store in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. You can pair them with some oven roasted potatoes and fresh fruit for a grab ‘n go breakfast for work!

The Best Huevos Rancheros

Spice up brunch with The Best Huevos Rancheros ever! This easy to make tostada type breakfast can be topped with cheese, avocado, cilantro and fresh lime for a fast and flavorful meal! 

The Best Huevos Rancheros

Huevos rancheros are the most perfect (vegetarian) meal. They are traditionally a combination of corn tortillas, refried beans, eggs, rice, salsa, and guacamole. However, we gave this Mexican dish our own spin. We added poblano peppers for flavor, swapping the eggs for egg white (in the base), and finishing it off with melted cheese and cilantro.

To give this recipe a little more of that “homemade” taste, we added a freshly cooked egg. The runny yolk really adds an additional layer of flavor. Then we finished the plate off with fresh avocado (everything is better with avocado, don’t you agree?), fresh jalapeno, and a squeeze of fresh lime! You won’t believe the explosion of flavors that are happening.

Huevos Rancheros are traditionally served for breakfast; however, this easy to make dish would also work well for lunch or dinner. We like to pair it with some fresh crusty bread for dipping up all of that yummy salsa at the end.

The beans and the egg whites add a nice punch of protein to this breakfast dish. Plus, you get fiber from the beans, too! This is the kind of meal you make when you have a real craving for comfort food, but don’t want to spend the time in the kitchen cooking.

The eggs and extra toppings in this recipe are ‘optional,’ but very highly recommended. You can also make your own homemade twist by layer corn tortillas, refried beans, salsa, eggs, and cheese. It’s a brunch recipe that the whole crowd will be asking for again and again.

The Best Huevos Rancheros Ingredients:

2 boxes Good Food Made Simple Huevos Rancheros

4 large eggs

Optional Toppings: avocado, lime, cilantro, cheese, jalapeno
