Pantry Raid No. 001
I love to cook and bake and often like to do pretty difficult recipes and try new things. But, when money is tight I find myself pinching pennies and I can’t always pick up ingredients for a fancy meal. Those times I raid the pantry and find whatever ingredients I have to make a quick meal without having to go to the store or spend any money.
Saturday night was one of those nights, so I cooked up some brown rice and while it was cooking I mixed together:
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of stewed tomatoes
A bit of frozen corn that was left in the bag (probably amounted to about 1/2 cup)
1 can chicken breast (I don’t normally buy this so I don’t know why it was in the pantry, but it’s like canned tuna but chicken)
A bit of homemade taco seasoning
I heated it up, mixed it into my rice and added some Tapatio. Instant meal.
