Now that school is back in session, time has been even more constrained than usual. Sometimes it's also hard to cook for just one person. So on a recent trip to Walmart, I decided to make dinner time easier on myself by picking up some frozen meals. The LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE meals caught my eye as I was browsing.
LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Cheese & Fire-Roasted Chile Tamale, LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Chicken Tikka Masala and LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Southwest – Style Potato Bake. It has been so nice to have a a little variety when it comes to a quick and easy meal solution for myself. Even though these meals are plenty on their own, I also like to add my own side dishes.
To go with both the Lean Cuisine Marketplace Cheese & Fire-Roasted Chile Tamale and Southwest-Style Potato Bake, I made some Queso Blanco.
I combined cream cheese, queso fresco, a little milk, and canned diced tomato with chiles over medium heat to make this dip. I also made my own tortilla chips by cutting up corn tortillas, spraying with a little cooking spray and baking.
Delicious with the LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Cheese & Fire-Roasted Chile Tamale.....
and with the LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Southwest – Style Potato Bake, which is made with organic red potatoes and poblano peppers. Yum!
I live right on the border with Mexico, (as in I can see Mexico from my back yard) so these dishes are right up my alley. Especially when I loose track of time by helping with homework or because the baby needed some attention, it has been so convenient for me to pull a delicious entree straight out of the freezer and have it on my plate in less than 5 minutes.
I recently discovered how much I also love Indian food, so I picked up a LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Chicken Tikka Masala as 1 of my dinner options. It's made with 2 of my favorite flavors, garlic and ginger.
To go with it, I made roasted curried chickpeas. I combined coconut oil, curry powder, garlic, ginger, and a little salt. Then I coated my drained and rinsed chickpeas with the spice mixture and roasted them in the oven on a baking sheet.
They turned out crispy and went perfectly with the Chicken Tikka Masala
I love that LEAN CUISINE has these delicious, contemporary, flavorful, protein-packed options. To see more ways to compliment your LEAN CUISINE entrees, check out this board on Pinterest, and make sure to follow LEAN CUISINE on Facebook, Twitter (@LeanCuisine), and Instagram(@LeanCuisine).
