If you were to ask my husband if there were to be anything I loved that could possibly be on the same level of him and our kids; It would be Mexican food.
Hands down. I day dream about it.
I would be happy eating nothing else but Mexican food for the rest of my life, so naturally I try to put Mexican twists into everything I cook! Even if it is just a little bit of my favorite salsa, or my husband's home made guacamole, these little ingredients make my tummy sing happy songs!
I was having a hard time with my creativity the other day in the kitchen. I wanted something delicious for lunch, but I was just incredibley too busy to cook!
Let's just say it; I was lazy, and didn't want to cook anything for that matter.
I needed a lazy, yet delicious lunch! Here is what I created!
Mexican-Twisted Chick Pea Salad
1 Can Low Sodium Chick Peas
1 Red Bell Pepper, Diced
2 Cups Spinach, Roughly Chopped
3 TBS Hemp Seeds
1/2 TBS Olive Oil
1 1/2 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
2 quick dashes of Chilli Powder
1 dash of ground Cumin
Happy Sized Dollop of your favorite Salsa
1 Corn Tortilla
In a bowl, combine all ingredients and spoon on top of your tortilla
And BONUS: This is completely vegan, kind & clean. And combining the Chick Peas with the Hemp Seeds make a complete protein - woo woo! :)
This will make a good sized bowl. I love to eat some for lunch & save the rest for lunch the next day! *Mwwah* Perfect!
