This is definitely a must try recipe. It’s freaking easy but will impress the crap out of anyone you serve it to. You will NEVER go back to store-bought naan bread again.

Once you have them made you can totally add some oil and garlic to the outside for garlic naan, you could use them for a pita sandwich type deal, or you could even top them with your favorite pizza toppings and bake to make a super easy and fast homemade pizza.

The possibilities are endless.

Anyways, promise to try these out, k? Check the full recipe out here.

I have a new Christmas recipe for you tomorrow! I hope you’re all excited.

Peace!

I re-created “Olive Garden’s” famous Zuppa Toscana soup. Which has been a favorite of mine forevs.

I made the recipe much lighter but still kept the full flavor and creaminess! And you can enjoy a serving of this for 200 calories.

Take Out Fake Out: Baja Shrimp Bowls

27 Apr

Couple things…

1. I feel like I am the most organized and productive I have ever been, ever. I’ve been going crazy the last couple weeks because every time I open my pantry or freezer, all I see is clutter and absolute disarray. If I can’t find something easily in the freezer, then I just give up and end up buying meat rather than using something we already have. Bad Miss Delish.

So all day yesterday at work I was thinking about organizing, I even pinned some things for inspiration. When I got home, I got straight to work and cleaned out both of our pantries and both the freezer in our refrigerator and the deep freeze. I feel so much better, and we have a lot of stuff to start eating.

2. I cleaned last night until Mr. Delish started whining about dinner. He’s sick right now with a cold and he is the biggest baby when he is sick. Anyone else have a whiny baby for a spouse?

3. Since I got so much done last night, I think that means I am released from all housework duties for the next 5 years….yeah? Cause I really need to clear up my schedule so I have more time for Margaritas.

Oh hey, what a coincidence, you know what goes well with a margarita?

Anything?

Well yes, anything goes with a margarita, but specifically these copycat baja bowls!

Basically you take a bunch of delicious things, and arrange them in a bowl, top it with salsa, guac and sour cream and then never stop eating them, ever.

Seriously, this baby is going on our regular dinner rotation. The best thing about it is that you can make it with any protein you want, chicken, beef, pulled pork (OMG yes) or Tofu….but I don’t know why you’d want to do that.

You can also go all out with freshly made pico de gallo and guacamole and use my homemade taco seasoning recipe. Or you can just buy all store bought stuff for a quick and easy dinner.

Trust me, I am the last person to judge. Sometimes we eat sour keys for dinner. 

Start with some cilantro & lime scented rice.

Scoop on some spiced black beans.

Top that with some seasoned shrimp.

Seriously, stop it now.

You can’t see the guacamole!

Much better.

Would it be unacceptable to eat this at 8:28am?

Baja Shrimp Bowls:
Serves 2

2 cups cooked basmati rice (hot)
Juice of half a lime
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 15 oz can black beans
1 package taco seasoning or 2 tbsp of my Homemade Taco Seasoning 
1 tbsp vegetable oil
16 peeled and de-veined shrimp, tail on
Salsa, Guacamole and Sour cream for serving

Add the lime juice and cilantro to the cooked rice and stir to combine. Set aside and keep warm.

In a small pot add the black beans and heat over medium heat until hot, add about 1 tbsp of the taco seasoning and stir to combine. Set aside and keep warm.

In a large pan, heat oil over medium high heat until glossy. Add the shrimp and remaining taco seasoning and stir to coat. Cook until pink and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat but leave in the pan to keep hot.

To serve, grab two bowls and scoop some rice into each bowl, follow by some of the seasoned black beans, and half the shrimp. Top with a big scoop of each of the salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Seriously, just stop.
