I always get asked, what do you eat? I try to post pictures on Instragram of the meals I eat, if they don’t make it to my blog. I don’t make a new meal every night, but I do most nights. On nights where I am lazy and declare it “fend for yourself night”, that’s when I make one of my all time favorite meals. It’s quick, easy and it really is one of my favorites. Matter in fact, I ate this once, three nights in a row. What can I say? I love it! My Husband thinks I’m crazy having the same meal, but when you can do it up and it has so much flavor, how can I not keep eating it? I am sure you know what I am talking about. Can you guess what is hidden in this big mess?
If you guessed, it’s a Spicy Black Bean Burger from Morning Star Farms. I love the Morning Star Spicy Black Bean Burgers! They taste so good! I’m not even vegan and I LOVE them, no really I do! I can’t even keep a package of them in my house. They are full of black beans, corn, green chili’s, rice and more. They are super quick to make too! You can microwave them, grill them cook them in a skillet or do what I do and bake them. Yummy!! For you, I made them simple, by topping them with avocado and my homemade Fire Grilled Salsa.
But the first picture is really how I eat them! I top them with jalapenos, hot sauce, a half portion of tortilla chips and some con queso cheese. Oh boy, I could so live on that meal!! It’s pretty apparent I have a major love affair for Mexican food! Yes, my plates a mess, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!!! Plus not to mention it’s all healthy and low calorie. The burger is only 120 calories and the toppings, make it under 200 calories, You can’t beat that for a lunch or dinner, plus it will fill you for hours!!
I feel kind of bad! Back in May, Morning Star offered me two tickets to the Bottle Rock Festival in Napa Valley, with no strings attached! I had all intentions of going, but for some unseen circumstances I couldn’t go. I feel bad! I want to thank Morning Star Farms for there kindness and understanding! Not only are there products wonderful like their Mediterranean Chickapea Burger, but they are such a nice company to work with. Thank you Morning Star for all you do!! I love the way you work and I love your burgers and veggies patties.

If you like your Vegetarian Burgers and Black Bean Burgers I recommend giving Morning Star a try. I was asked by them a few months ago to sample one of their patties and I did, with reservations and now that I tried them, now I love them! You will always find a few packages in my freezer! Makes for a healthy, quick night dinner, plus I also like to crumble it up and make a taco salad too! Oh, here’s a picture of the big Morning Star Burger on Instagram that I made a couple of months ago! Yum!
Well my Friends, I am off. Hope you like my personal fend for yourself night dinner. It really is one of my all time favorite meals.
Have a great day!
