Since I decided to not go grocery shopping, I had to get creative and whip up something for my husband and 2 sons (all over 6 feet — help!). But, having learned from my late mother how to make a meal out of practically nothing, I didn’t sweat it.
I took an inventory of what I had on hand:
- 6 chicken tenders
- 1 sweet onion
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1/2 bag of yellow rice
- 1 can of black beans
- 1/2 bag of frozen, southwestern corn
- 1 pack of flour tortillas
- 1 pack of fajita seasoning
- 1 jar of mango salsa
Afterwards, I went into stealth mode and decided to cook chicken fajitas with yellow rice, black beans/corn, and a side salad. The next time you decide to not go grocery shopping — don’t panic; just get creative!
