THANKS EVERYONE for all your suggestions for meal ideas!  I am slowly working on accumulating some good recipes to cycle through throughout the week.  I did try a pretty good recipe that I thought I’d share with you all.  It is a Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake and it comes from Tasty Kitchen.  I originally found this on pinterest and I gave it a shot.  Here is a picture from the Tasty Kitchen blog:

What originally attracted me to this recipe was that it has things in it that I almost always have on hand!  Chicken, black beans, rice, corn, cheese, salsa.  The second thing that I love about this recipe is that it makes quite a bit and it is extremely affordable.   This was also a “everything in one” type of meal – when we had it I think we had a salad or something else to go with it, but you really don’t NEED anything else.  Some simple seasonal veggies would be a great side dish.

We will definitely be making this recipe again with a few minor changes:
-add more salsa
-add some extra beans and corn
-guacamole, extra salsa, and sour cream would be good as a topping (obviously not as healthy, but yum!)
-possibly use less rice and try in tortillas to see how that goes!

This recipe was submitted by How Sweet Eats and you can view it on her site or on Tasty Kitchen!  I’ll keep you guys posted on other good recipes!
