I’m going to go ahead and assume that about 96.4% of the American population gets ridiculous Mexican food cravings at least once a week. At least I know I do. Sometimes those cravings don’t come at the most convenient times – say for instance, when you’re in your out-of-season Christmas snowmen pajama pants, you’ve got makeup halfway lingering on your face from a party the night before and your hair looks like it could house baby birds on top of your head. Who, me?
With that sexy and appetizing imagery now in your head (me-oww), I’ll share with you my solution to that. No Mexican hat dance necessary! Ole!
5oz ground meat (I used turkey)
approx 1 cup peppers/onions chopped
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 tbsp olive oil (any oil will work)
plenty of salsa
Heat skillet to medium heat, add olive oil and turkey and cook til browned. Crack and add your egg, peppers and onions and simmer. Scoop up some salsa and a pinch of chili powder and salsa and simmer til it smells like a fiesta!
Pour or scoop into a bowl and top with cheese, broil/microwave til the cheese is melty and dig in.
Technically this could work if you only had access to a microwave and had precooked meat, so my dorm room divas…remember that.
