Mexican Toppings

Happy Wednesday! We’ve made it to hump day. First and foremost, happy birthday to my lovely mother!

I overslept my workout class this morning, so I opted for the elliptical after a bowl of Peanut Butter & Jelly Oats.

Last week, I’d fallen off the workout wagon. Some days (or weeks) it’s okay to go easy on ourselves. Listen to lethargy.

As a followup to Monday’s post, I felt so much better after a run, shower, and a relaxing evening of TV and manicures with  my roommate. See ya later blues.

A big plate of nachos for dinner didn’t hurt either. 😉

Healthy Fiesta Pepper Nachos

(Adapted from my Traverse Bay Salsa Nachos)

  • A couple handfuls of tortilla Chips
  • 1 bag of frozen peppers (frozen is cheaper, but fresh works too)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup refried beans
  • 1/4 cup Mexican shredded cheese
  • 1 handful of arugula
  • 1 spoonful of salsa

Sauté frozen peppers and onion with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Grab a plate and spread tortilla chips evenly. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Microwave for 1 minute. Add the peppers, chopped onion and arugula. Microwave for another minute. Heat refried beans separately, then add to the plate. Top with salsa.

¡Que delicioso!

I used my leftovers to create a quesadilla for lunch today.


Question: What’s your favorite Mexican dish?

Have a good one!
