What are your "fall back" meals??
No, not the ones you eat on fallback Sunday, but the ones you cook when you really don't feel like cooking or don't have time.
I have two standards:
Chicken Fajitas which consists of cutting onions into rings, sauteeing them in some olive oil until nicely carmelized then adding bell peppers that have been cut into strips. After those cook for a few minutes I add boneless, skinless chicken that has been cut into to strips and seasoned with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. I let that cook then serve with tortillas, shredded cheese, salsa, and rice on the side.
The other is even easier! Brown hamburger meat seasoned with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders. When it is brown add one can each tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook about 15-20 minutes then add to cooked pasta. I've been cooking this since I was about 10 years old!!
So what are some of your favorite, easy to prepare meals?
