Enchilada skillet 🙌 I am all about quick & simple meals and this one is an oldie but goodie. You can add really any vegetable/bean/meat combo you already have in the fridge and it turns out delicious every single time!

We should aim to make 50% of our daily grains "whole grain". Did you know corn tortillas are considered whole grain? This meal keeps getting better. It has a good source of macronutrients (carbs: corn tortillas, protein: beans and chicken, fat: avocado). Plus there is plenty of fiber with the beans, whole grains, and vegetables. This meal is highly nutritious!
