PRONTO Y SALUDABLE!

Do you remember this photo? 
If you're my friend on Facebook, then you might have seen it when I posted it last week or so...
I whipped together a super low cal Mexican recipe I created from always having the craving for Mexican food am but not always wiling to sacrifice the calories for it... 
Ahhh a day in the life! 
I had requests for the recipe, so I though I'd share!
SO SIMPLE:
STEP 1
I saved some sauteed shrimp (in garlic salt and olive oil) from last night's dinner. You can replace the shrimp with beans (as a vegetarian option), veggies or practically anything else you have on hand! Arrange them on a corn tortilla. 
STEP 2: 
I used one reduced calorie cheddar cheese snacker, that way I know exactly what I'm consuming. Spoon on some enchilada sauce and diced red onion. 
Step 3: 
Roll everything up in the tortilla and prep for the oven. I added one more cheddar cheese snacker on top, more red onion and enchilada sauce. 
*Bake for about 10 minutes at 350-400 degrees. 

I LOVE salsa!
I could probably eat salsa with just about any meal and at any time of day...
I love making this easy, fresh and simple salsa:
*For a heartier version add cubed avocado.
DICE THESE FRESH INGREDIENTS:
1/2 Tomato
1 Green Onion and an equal amount of red onion
Cilantro to taste
A squeeze of lime juice 
Salt and Pepper to taste
...
MIX TOGETHER AND ENJOY!
VOILA!
Because I only made one enchilada (rather than lining up several in a pan for support against each other) it collapsed and the cheese melted all over the pan... It was still delish, but if you're concerned about appearance than I wouldn't recommend making a single one.

  1. This looks yummy!!! As much as I would like to admit that I love cooking, usually I prefer meals that are easy, quick, but still equally delish and healthy.
    Have you ever checked out the Hungry Girl cookbook series? I think you'd really enjoy the recipes.
