Being from Texas, the amount of Mexican food consumed during my lifetime is quite substantial. The only thing that put a halt to all the endless chips and salsa, Freebirds burritos, and sizzling fajitas galore was my decision to attend school in Colorado. The Mexican food is sub-par here and it is one of the things I crave when I go home. I still get my fix from time to time with a Chipotle bowl from time to time, but I like to stay away from the fast food. Up there on my “hard to resist” list? Chipotle’s Cilantro Lime Rice.
Cooking dinner during the week (especially a week during exams) can sometimes get pushed on the back burner. That is why it is nice to have quick, simple, and healthy recipes to make for dinner. One of my go-to’s is a Dairy-Free Avocado Quesadilla complete with salsa and Blue Corn Tortilla Chips.
