This week's easy peasy dinner winner is Taco's.
Of course the easiest option is to buy a packet of taco seasoning, but one day I hadn't bought any and knew there must be a DIY alternative out there. So, I did what I always do and googled it. This version only takes a minute or two anyway.
DIY Taco Seasoning
If you want it a bit spicier - add some cayenne pepper. If you want it less spicy, omit the chili powder.
You can keep this in an airtight container in the cupboard for whenever you need it.
When I need it, I add it to 500g beef mince and a chopped onion.
The favorite in our house is to use soft tortillas for tacos. These are delivered each week in our Aussie Farmers delivery (Our shelves would be bare without Aussie Farmers!). I also use tortillas for lunch wraps, as pizza bases or for thin toasted sandwiches.
As I do when we make our own pizzas, I just put lots of small bowls on the table full of things like:
shredded iceberg lettuce
slices of avocado
and everyone makes their own.
It's often a big mess and the cheese gets eaten first, but some of the vegies do manage to go in at some stage. In some more than others.
After being inspired by seeing some great easy peasy desserts on many of your blogs and realising that, unlike me, many people do have dessert after a meal more than once a month, I'll now be including a quick dessert every now and then on a Tuesday. So, feel free to link your easy peasy desserts as well as your easy peasy meals each week.
The following is one I have been known to do when unexpected guests arrive...tastes divine. Came from the Donna Hay 'Food Fast' cookbook. Another title I like!
EASY APPLE TARTS
2 sheets ready rolled puff pastry
2 apples (pink lady or sweet apples)
Preheat oven to 220C. Cut each pastry sheet into 2 pieces. Core the apples and slice thinly. Place the pastry on baking trays lined with baking paper and top the pastry with a layer of apples down the middle. Brush the apples with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve with thick cream or ice-cream.
Now it's your turn!
Take a photo of your dinner tonight, or sometime this week, & link your easy peasy recipe down below, so that we can all give it a go. Don't forget to link back to here in your post so others can join in the fun and have access to some great new easy dinner recipes.
Alternatively, feel free to just link up an old post that you've written if it contains what we're after.
Remember - no dinner is too easy!
Bring on the easy peasy desserts as well - yum!
