During the summer time, my kids and I are outside most of the day and all I want to cook are quick and easy meals, but without sacrificing health and flavor! My goal over the summer months is to find as many 15 minute or less meals as I can and to share them with you to simplify all of our lives so we can enjoy outside time with the kiddos.
Over the weekend, I was perusing about a years worth of Clean Eating magazines and found a Southwestern Turkey Meatball recipe and figured, why add the carbs and time it takes to make meatballs – let’s just brown the meat. I personally use organic, grass fed local beef, but you can feel free to use turkey. This meal was super fast and tasted great to the kids and I. My husband needed to add a little more heat and did so by throwing in some medium salsa and some green chilies into his bowl. Everyone customized their toppings bowl with veggies we keep in the fridge for snacking and optional queso fresco. I ate mine without tortilla chips to keep it low glycemic, but the rest of the fam opted for chips. It was delicious and I’ll be making it frequently throughout the summer.
