BBQ Sweet Corn, Zucchini & Black Beans w/ Chili-Spiced Flounder

This idea was inspired by a birthday visit over the winter from a long-time college friend, who whipped up a mixture of beans, bbq sauce, sun-dried tomatoes and who knows what else that ended up in a most fabulous chip dip…

I figured that this time perhaps I’d take a more southwestern spin on things and add in some sweet corn, zucchini, & fresh cilantro, making it a medley of sorts perfect for chip dipping but also as a lovely bbq bed to rest some chili-spiced fish! :)

This is super easy and if you’re on a bbq sauce kick like I apparently am, super satisfying. And hey, it’s super satisfying even if you aren’t too :P


Sweet n’ Spicy Ricotta Enchiladas

The dog days of summer


Or whatever they call them ;)

Have been some of the best days around!!

So many unexpected turns, I just love all the fun that summer seems to bring and sometimes just wonder how it is all real life :D

So yea. About that. I’ve been kinda MIA…

Enjoying seasonally amazing temps.


Under beautiful blue skies.


Meeting and spending time with so many fun & great people :)

With the trend of meals at favorite restaurant spots continuing…


Burrata. My one true love? Yes, when combined w/ fried green tomatoes, BACON, onion jam and a fried duck egg!

And just a bit of time here and there for simple throw together meals.

Like these sweet n’ spicy ricotta enchiladas.


I adore using ricotta in enchis, have done it before and will!


Mango Ricotta Enchiladas —> one of my favorite enchi recipes of alltimeeverever!!

If you haven’t tried this swap out for the usual suspect shredded cheese before, I’d definitely recommend it :)


Not only does it add a fun sweet contrast to a spicy sauce, but the ricotta also makes the enchis so doughy and delicious if you ask me :D


This enchi version is simple simple simple and uses just wheat tortillas, ricotta, broccoli, olives and salsa to come together…


I mean how much easier can you get???


Oh yes, and top them with a bit of hot sauce too. Because, you know, you can never go wrong there :)

Hope you are enjoying some easy recipes & beautiful summer days too!!

4 Ingredient Mexican “Lasagna”

A Sunday night after a sunny & gorgeous first official (3 day!) weekend of summer just doesn’t leave a girl with much energy left for cooking…


Unless it’s a simple 4 ingredient recipe much like this one! Now that, THAT I can do :)


A healthy & super easy take on a Mexican “lasagna” and all you need is four ingredients + 30 minutes. It’s that easy guys! :)

1. Corn tortillas
2. Black beans
3. Crumbled feta
4. Salsa verde



And if we’re being honest here, I must tell you that I totally meant to add in frozen sweet corn too, however just completely forgot!

Hey, at least I tried haha ;)

So. This salsa verde… a cousin to your more traditional tomato based salsa and made with tomatillos.


Which gives it a somewhat tangy taste. Pairing perfectly with salty feta and sweet corn tortillas if you ask me (oh yea, and that sweet corn too ;) )


And when it’s as easy as layering ingredients and popping into a warm oven for a few minutes, how can you resist?!

Just in time to get back to relaxing and enjoying what’s left of that weekend ;)
