• Quick, Easy & Delicious Dinner Recipe

    simple and delicious family dinner recipe

    Cooking family dinners, especially one my family wants to eat, can be a challenge. So when I was asked to create a quick and delicious recipe using one of Progresso’s Recipe Starters cooking sauces, I was excited to try something new. Here’s what I came up with. 

    Charlie’s Mexican Lasagna

    Ingredients:

    • Flour tortillas
    • Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Three Cheese Sauce
    • 1 can of Pinto or Black Beans
    • 1 lb cooked, shredded chicken
    • shredded Mexican cheeses

    Instructions:

    1. Cook and shred your chicken (I boil a lb of chicken breasts till cooked, then shred using my standing mixer – so easy!)

    2. Preheat your oven to 350.

    3. Using a 9×12 casserole dish, line bottom of dish with tortillas (mine took 3 to cover bottom).

    4. Add a layer of shredded chicken over tortillas.

    5. Pour 1/3 of Progresso Creamy Three Cheese sauce over chicken.

    6. Add layer of your choice of beans over chicken and sauce.

    7. Sprinkle shredded Mexican cheese on top.

    8. Repeat steps 3-7 one additional time, layering like you’re making a lasagna.

    9. Place dish in preheated oven and cook for 20 min (or until cheese is melted).

    10. Cool, cut squares like lasagna, and serve.

    11. Garnish with salsa, guacamole, or sour cream as desired.

    My family loved this and is still eating the leftovers – in fact, it is even better reheated! What are your favorite delicious, quick and easy family dinners?

    •  Happy 5 months (and 2 days) my happy happy boy. This last month has been such a turnaround. You pretty much look like this allllll the time. You are such a happy little love and when you smile you light up. And you have these dimples  You are a chubby 18 lbs, are rolling and razzing and squawking. You are grabbing your feet and putting everything in your mouth. You pretty much go with the flow these days. The only time you aren't happy is when you want attention. You are really ticklish under your chin and laugh big belly laughs. You love both of your brothers' attention, and handle Calvin's craziness pretty well. You like when I sing to you. We go on adventures now. You still aren't completely sleeping through the night, but one wake up isn't bad and you transitioned from a swaddle to sleepsack and into your bassinet like a champ. You're my best napper. And you are just such a joy. I'm kind of obsessed with you Q. And considering how we started, that's really saying something  #quincysmonthbymonth #quincyrhys  Love your guts from that fluffy hair on your head to those curled up toes ❤️ And don't forget to check out the blog today for a post on our experience with infant reflux and 7 tips for dealing with it, plus what products and treatments worked for us.

       It seems like only yesterday I was bringing Charlie here at this age (there's even a video of Charlie wearing this exact shirt there in the #charlielovestheyellownoodles feed!) And now #calvinlovestheyellownoodles too. I'm gonna blink and Quincy will be doing the same thing. They grow up way too fast -- I'm so grateful to have this time with them. #thesearethedays #calvins2ndyear  Took the littles to @lacma to wear them out, but I think this one wore me out instead  #calvins2ndyear #OLDsfaveplacesinLA #lacma
