It's hump day!! Que the camel. Finally we are on the downward slide of the week. I am tired. I did NOT want to make dinner tonight. Mr. Incredible will usually make something but we both were just - blah. I didn't want to order food because for one thing - I can't eat anything that is driven to my home. For another - the boys eat so much and we all eat dinner leftovers for lunch the next day so it is like ordering for 10 instead of 4. That adds up and momma has Disney trips to pay for. Not happening. Time to call in my emergency back-up dinner - Hamburger Salsa!
Anyone who knows me knows that I can cook up a storm. From Mexican to Italian to Greek - just tell me what you want and I will whip it up. Just not tonight. Please.
Tonight is Hamburger Salsa. Nothing to measure, prepare, chop, or watch. The only dishes you will have is the pot, whatever you use to break up the meat, plates and utensils. This is the simplest of meals my friends. It may even be easier than calling your local pizza joint. Here is what you need:
1.5 lbs ground beef (ground turkey or chicken would work too if you prefer)
16 oz of your favorite paleo friendly salsa - mild, medium or hot depending on your family's preference
tortilla chips for dipping (omit if you want to keep this paleo)
Brown the beef. Drain. Add Salsa.
THAT IS IT YOU GUYS!!!!
My oldest likes to add shredded cheese and sour cream so it is more like a cheater chili. (Also, obviously, not paleo toppings.) I made him shred his own cheese. Did I mention I was feeling lazy?
My kids love it. They are sad when they eat it all!
What is your weeknight easy go-to dinner?
