• 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?

       My new @madebymarywithlove necklace came today - all three boys on one bar. I love seeing their names together like this  Also, when you had hair and makeup done courtesy of a photoshoot and you are 10 days postpartum, you have to memorialize it with a selfie. Because tomorrow I'll turn back into a postpartum pumpkin in my pjs, with no makeup and unwashed hair.
