Mexican Sautéed Corn

Hey guys! If you don’t already know, I love corn. And sweet potatoes. And peanut butter. And granola. But today we’re focusing on corn, and this delicious side dish! It’s quick, simple, and so so good:)

Frozen corn is just amazing, guys. It’s so speedy and makes a great addition to any meal or bowl🙌 You know what else it’s good for? Sautéing! To make this corn I started by frying up some onions and peppers, which add flavour and a little something extra👌 Then I added lots of corn and some tasty spices to bring everything together. Delish!

The spices I used include cumin, cayenne powder, garlic powder, paprika and oregano. This gives all the veggies a great Mexican flair, and makes them a great side dish for tacos, or as an add in in a burrito bowl! That would be really good actually now that I think about it. There may be a burrito bowl coming your way soon lol😂

Enjoy this simple but healthy and super tasty Mexican Sautéed Corn!

Red Bean Burritos

Hey guys! I’m back from a bit of a lull in my posting schedule with these Red Bean Burritos. They’re full to bursting with delicious ingredients (and a lot of cilantro) to bring a ray of sunshine to your drab winter lunches! I made the filling with red kidney beans, but black beans work just as well. Top these suckers with tons of guacamole and salsa and you’ve got a fiesta in your mouth! Here’s the recipe;)

Red Bean Burritos

Serves: 2-3

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbs cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 a tomato, diced
  • 1/2 a small onion, diced
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • A handful of fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pita and salsa and guacamole for serving

Directions:

  1. In a pan over the medium heat, stir together the beans, water, and spices. Let simmer for about 2-5 minutes, until most of the liquid is gone and the mixture has thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix together the quinoa, tomato, onion, cilantro and lemon juice.
  3. Warm up a wrap or pita and scoop some of the quinoa mixture, beans, salsa and guacamole into it. Wrap it up and enjoy!

*this recipe can also be enjoyed as a bowl- just omit the wrap and use more quinoa!

Hope you guys have a great weekend!
