Hiya, do you agree that everything doesn’t always need to be a big production in the kitchen – or in general, for that matter. Well, here’s a flavor-filled, layered collage of edibles set in an easy-to-make Mexican style mini-meal that sweet for movie-night or a gathering of friends.
I made this recently, and thought to share pics of the presentation to give you ideas of ways to add some panache to your plate the next time tortilla chips happen to be in your kitchen. Did you see the post earlier up on the blog that shared my black bean recipe? Well, that one comes in handy to make up part of this recipe. I invite you to be creative with adding elements to enjoy with your giant chips. The contents I used are just a scroll away to jumpstart some ideas.
What to get to prep this mini-meal:
1 bag of low-salt tortilla chips
1/2 cup of boiled plain rice
1 can of black beans (my preference is Goya)
2 medium diced tomatoes (for salad & salsa)
fresh herbs (basil, thyme, parsley)
1/5 red pepper
cheddar cheese (I bought a cheese & salsa blend)
1 egg (fry and sprinkle with salt n’ pepper)
1/2 diced cucumber
1 handful of shredded lettuce
salt, black pepper, paprika
1/2 chunky-diced sweet pepper
Ciao for now, and thanks for reading!
