• 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?

       I was gifted some @honest diapers and wipes when Calvin was born and only recently made my first actual Honest purchase. Got a super great deal on a bundle (6 packs of diapers and 4 packs of wipes) plus a bundle of products to try it all out. I would love to hear from fellow mommas who have also purchased their products. Do you love? Think it's overrated? Worth the price? Favorite items? Calvin has been having multiple diaper side leaks when in his car seat (don't know if it is the diaper b/c it has happened with both Pampers and Honest ones or the way he sits in his seat - it's always out the same side!) so I would love to hear which diapers are your favorite. And I'll be sharing my honest review of the @honest products I'm trying (see what I did there ) oh, and if you want an invite to get the same awesome deal, leave your email address in the comments and I'll send you a link!
