Mexican Food Love!

Mexican food seems to be everyone’s favorite! There’s something about those super colorful ingredients that just call on us.

Rice, beans, veggies, and fresh salsas are all full of nutrients, so believe me when I tell you that you can eat the Mexican food you dream of and still stay healthy and on budget. Pretty perfect, right?

Also, this would be an ideal meal for a casual family weekday dinner! Throw ingredients into a bowl (you can leave out some no-no’s for the picky ones!) and you’re good to go! Having an easy and inviting meal planned in your head right before mealtime is so helpful! Those moments when the hunger strikes and you have nothing ready are the moments when you’re most likely to reach for something not too healthy and surely not too easy on the wallet. Bean burrito for the win!
