• 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?

    •  Someone was so excited about #maythe4th that I had to post ANOTHER photo. And if you follow me on snapchat you know that person was actually me. #imthatmomnow #maythe4thbewithyou #starwars #allroadsleadtostarwars #quincyrhys  May the 4th be with you. #maythe4th
       I've been doing a lot of succulent planting and shelf and mantle styling and rearranging this week. I think I'm love having our #rambleandroost CA string art above the mantle. But once I get a @palomasnest silhouette of Quincy I'm gonna have to rethink the whole thing! Those make the best Mother's Day gift, by the way. It's too late for a finished product but you can always do a gift card   In the last week we conquered a long walk in the stroller, a birthday party in the Ergo, moved you into your bassinet, and had an amazing night of sleep. You started reaching for things, and (based on a ridiculous number of blow outs) grew out of size 2 diapers. And you almost never stopped smiling. #14weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys
