Tuna Quesadillas #SundaySupper

 

First let me tell you that making school lunches is something that I have to do on a regular basis, and I always try to come out with something inventing and different, not only because my girls love a good homemade lunch at school but also because there is nothing more satisfying to me that having a great balanced meal for them.

And this is just one of the reasons to why I love so much this theme today. When I was making my meal plan for the first 2 months of school, yes I know is still early but I like to be prepare, I came out with this different and inventive quesadilla, that I actually made and let the girls try to see if this would be a good option for them.

And let me tell you it was a great idea, they love it so much that of course, I have to make it before school again. But to be honest I don’t mind, it makes me happier than this. This quesadilla is a great hot lunch option, not only because is easy to make, you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and it only takes 10 minutes if your time in the morning.
So, don’t worry about making a hot lunch for the kiddos this school year because we have it cover.

To us, this was a special time, I had to spend some time helping my aunt with the food, sharing some laughs with my cousins and eating a lot, of course as a Hispanic for us there is not better time than the holiday season, we enjoy every single moment to the max, and now I can share all my memories and some dishes with my daughter, I’m sure they would do the same with their kids too.

And of course to make a huge plate of food you need good quality products, and I have the best by my side, just as La Morena® and Knorr®, as many of you already know, these products bring the flavor of your food to another level. As always my go to place to find and buy my favorite products is Walmart and you must go to the Hispanic aisle, where you can find the products I’m using today in my recipe.

Because this time of the year is so busy, I make the recipe simple and easy to follow, with ingredients that we all have on hand, and of course other products that as I told you before you can find at your local Walmart.
And of course, this rice is just perfect not only for this special occasion but you can easily make it as an easy dinner for a large gathering on a different occasion.

My secret to the recipe? You ask, using Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon Granulated Bouillon to make the broth for the rice and the sauce and to add a different kick to the sauce also, I added some La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, I love how subtle the spicy flavor is in my sauce not overpowering thanks to the chipotle peppers.

My recipe is simple but big on flavor and you will find it so easy to make that I just want to read all the comments you’ll have for me at the end.

Zucchini Stew #HealthyMondays

Zucchini Stew #HealthyMondays

 

There is nothing better than start the week with a good, delicious and healthy recipe, specially when is so good for you and super easy to make. I love to create healthy side dishes for my family and to teach my kids that all foods are good for you and good for your body.

This recipe is inspired by a stew that my mom used to make when we were little and she make it for us specially after a long day of study and doing homework, what a great way to have an excuse to eat a healthy meal.

As a side dish this stew always is a great complement to make for fish, or just prepare white rice and this stew and that is it, you don’t need a piece of meat or poultry.

In my case I make it for my kids once a week, you guess it on Mondays, I think that when you start the week with a healthy stomach it help you with the daily routine of the rest of the week, and let me tell you there is nothing better than a light meal on a Monday night, it helps you to sleep better, keep your kids focus and ready for the next day and you can save the leftovers (if you have some) for lunch and it would taste amazing.

This is one way I eat healthy on Mondays, now, tell me yours. Have a wonderful week!
