Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Most of my weekend was spent relaxing until Sunday afternoon when I got this insane urge to bake…that last oh, 5 hours! It was crazy, but it felt soooo good to be back in my element, finally! But let me tell you, by the time I was done, I was exhausted! haha I felt like I had run a marathon! It’s crazy how something that seems so simple as baking can take so much out of you! From today forward though, these legs will be resting in preparation for this weekend! We are leaving on Thursday and I couldn’t be more excited (and nervous)! I am also thrilled that I will be in warm weather and get to see my sister! But before I go, I have some delicious recipes for you! I hope you enjoy this one! It is another one of those single serve meals I made for my lunch last week…and boy was it delicious! ?

This recipe was delicious! I was craving something mexican inspired and this hit the spot! It is loaded with veggies, protein, heart healthy fats and flavor! Plus it packs a whopping 11g of fiber!! That is almost half your daily requirement!! Feel free to add in any other veggies you like! I usually like to add mushrooms, but I was out!
