Tex Mex Shrimp Salad

Dinner, Recipes

INSTRUCTIONS 

Roasted Chickpeas

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Drain and rinse chickpeas and then pat dry. It is important to make sure they’re totally dry before you toss them with the olive oil – damp chickpeas won’t crisp up in the oven.
  • Transfer the chickpeas to a parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle olive oil and season with taco seasoning.
  • Bake on middle rack for 20 minutes, shaking half way through. You want them crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. Once done, remove and let cool!

Shrimp

  • Remove tails and skin from the Shrimp, rinse and pat dry. Season with your seasoning of choice. I personally love The Spice Lab Seasoning, Spicy Seafood. You can get this at your local Publix if you are in the Florida area.
  • In a medium-large pan, heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until completely pink and slightly browned on edges.

Dressing

  • Combine ranch, cilantro, avocado and water into a processor or blender and blend until smooth. You can make your own ranch if desired. The Kitchen Girl has a great recipe. However, I find it is easier to do it with premade ranch and the grocery store does have some great healthy options. I choose to add avocado to incorporate a healthy fat and to increase the creaminess of the dressing.

Assembly

  • In a large bowl, mix the lettuce/spring mix with the dressing so that it is lightly covered.
  • Top with all the veggies and chickpeas and then place shrimp on top. If you would like to use Corn Riblets to add some aesthetics, try my recipe here.
  • Garnish with cilantro if desired!

Chicken Fajita Pasta

Dinner, Recipes

I just got back from a trip to Vermont, which was lovely by the way, and the only items I had in the fridge that weren’t bad was peppers, onions and garlic. Instantly I thought of stir-fry or fajitas but I was craving pasta so that is where the Chicken Fajita Pasta was born (at least for me).

INGREDIENTS

Instructions:

  • Bring pot of water to boil and cook pasta until al dente. Don’t overcook because it will fall apart when combining with sauce.
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken breast and then pound them until they are about half the thickness. This will make them more tender and cook through.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken to taste and sprinkle about 1/4th the fajita seasoning on them. Save the rest for later.
  • In a pan over medium high heat, drizzle about 1tbsp of olive oil in the pan and place chicken. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Once done, cut into 1 inch strips or cubes.
  • Slice onion and bell peppers into 1/4 inch pieces and mince garlic.
  • In another large pan, drizzle olive oil and heat on high. Once oil is hot, combine peppers and onions and sauté for about 1-2 minutes but do not burn.
  • Reduce heat down to medium add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Then add cream and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add cubed chicken, pasta, 1/4 cup pasta water, fajita seasoning, cheese, tsp of salt, tsp of pepper and combine gently until sauce is thickened.

Mexican Skillet Lasagna

Dinner, Recipes

This Mexican Skillet Lasagna is an easy recipe packed full of fiber, protein and veggies. You can turn up the heat with some jalapenos and hot sauce or tone it down by changing out some of the ingredients. Top with homemade Pico and a side of sour cream. Enjoy!

Ingredient Recommendations

  • Enchilada Sauce – I like to use Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce because it is a medium heat sauce. However, you can substitute with mild or even green enchilada sauce. I prefer the taste of the red sauce because I think it adds additional flavor.
  • Tortillas – My go to tortilla is either the Ole Xtreme Wellness Wraps that are keto friendly, high in fiber and low in net carbs or Mission Carb Balance Tortilla Wraps. You will want to choose a wrap that is slightly larger than the skillet. This will allow the edges to fold up and keep the sauce on each layer. If the wraps are too small then the layers will fall out on the sides.
  • Seasoning – You can use Taco or Mexican seasoning. A few that I like are Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, Ortega Low Sodium Taco Seasoning or if you are going for a low sodium, low carb and allergen friendly seasoning you can order FlavorGod Taco Tuesday Seasoning.

INGREDIENTS  

  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • ½ Red Bell Pepper
  • ½ Green Bell Pepper
  • ½ White Onion
  • 1 10oz Can Red Enchilada Sauce
