Full of flavor and packed with veggie goodness, these fajita bowls are super-fun to eat and sure to please the whole family! It's an easy and convenient dinner perfect for even the busiest weeknights.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE eating food that comes in its own little edible bowl. Fun, fun, fun! Sure, regular tortillas or even tacos shells do the trick for a dish like this, but these cute little bowls are easy to make and they make this meal even more snazzy! (Yes, I am bringing back the word 'snazzy'! LOL)
You can find the recipe for the bowls HERE. And there is even a quick and fun video tutorial to watch if you appreciate the visual approach!
Now that I have started a new job, I am finding myself busier than ever. It isn't that this new job has more responsibility (yet), it is just that I have to pay close attention to everything and focus at all times to try to figure out what things are and how things are supposed to work. I have to prepare myself, because at some point I will be assigned to manage a project all by myself, and the more I know, the smoother it will go! So I will need to divert some of my time and energy to my new job for a while, until I get the hang of things. But don't worry, I plan to continue to post new recipes here as much as I can!
Meals like this are essential when you are in an extra-busy period of time, like when you are starting a new job around the holidays (what WAS I thinking?!?), or during sports season when you have multiple kids in multiple sports, or any time things start to get crazy in your life!
I like to make the bowls ahead of time, and then store them in an extra large ziplock bag until the day I make this dish. They will keep for a few days in that bag, just make sure to hide it so your family doesn't munch on them for snacks!
(Pssst....in the mood for something more 'enchilada-ish' instead of 'fajita-ish'? This Enchilada Bake is super-easy to prepare using pantry and freezer staples, and it is so tasty it’s sure to become a long-time family favorite!)
