10 minute meals?

When you're in a BIG hurry or kids are SUPER hungry, what can you fix in a flash?!?!?
Bean Burrito- {Can of refried beans, put some on each tortilla (flour or corn for GF), half a piece of cheese on top, nuked. Can of corn makes a quick side or chips/salsa}

Guacamole- to some, not a complete meal- {1 or more avacados (soft- peeled and mashed), 1/4c. or so of salsa, dash of lime juice, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, etc - mix. If you're in a big hurry- just the avacado and salsa is good... it only gets better incrementally with the spices.}

Beanies and Weanies- Do I dare admit this? Yes, hotdogs chunked up in pork and beans or baked beans. A variation- ground beed (if you have leftover or have it in pre-measured frozen packets) in baked beans.

If you can spare 15 minutes to get it ready...

Red Beans, Rice, and sausage- {I keep the boil-in-bags of brown rice on hand, and cook in micro in covered pyrex for 10min- cook (if you cook rice in broth- has lots more flavor!), add can drained kidney beans, and any kind of sausage (I keep turkey kielbasa in the freezer), and a small can of V8 adds nice flavor and makes it saucier. A small can of tomato sauce with spices would do, too.}

Mexican Mix-Up- {Do the rice in broth in the micro again, add drained/rinsed cans of black beans and corn, some spices- cumin, cayenne- stir w/ salsa, sprinkle shredded cheddar over top- and a dollop of sour cream if you have it. Serve alone, over crackers, or wrap in a tortilla for a fancy burrito!}

What do YOU fix when you're in a hurry?!?!?! Let us know... it seems there are more rushed meals right now than there should be as we all adjust to the new schedules of fall.

God bless your cooking and your eating!
