Bacon Cheeseburger Enchiladas

Fruitfully Blessed

blog size enchiladasTell me. How many hamburger buns have to perish – stuffed in a corner of somebody’s cold fridge or freezer? What of the tortillas!? When there’s no filling left to hold or contain. The remaining buns and tortillas don’t stand a chance when the tides of dinnertime change. At least that’s how it is in my house. It’s just me and my husband so, more often than not, we end up with too many hamburger buns or tortillas. Or! I’ll buy new buns because I forgot we already had some at home.  It’s wasteful and it’s an issue but I’m working  on it!

easy weeknight dinner enchiladasEnter these Bacon Cheeseburger Enchiladas. We ate them with forks! We ate them fast! WE LEFT NO TORTILLAS BEHIND! This meal is the best of both worlds – one part enchilada, one part bacon cheeseburger, and one whole plate full of yum!

Tomato Garlic Soup

comfort food , health , homegrown , organic , soup , winter , yummy

Bored Weekends

Winter is here, again! And this time I am at a place where neither I can grow vegetables, nor can I prepare my favourite soup. So I thought why not write about it to revisit one of my most cherished recipes. I prefer this whenever either of us feel sick. Best for throat/chest infection, cough, cold, fever. I prepare this even when no one’s sick, I love this soup so much. Since I am a flag bearer of healthy eating, all the main ingredients come from my organic kitchen garden, prepared in pure ghee, which also comes from my kitchen. It’s tasty, it’s easy to make and soothes sore throat as much as the soul. Enjoyed best cooped up inside the blanket in single digit temperature, which I miss here in Kolkata.

  • 10 fully ripe tomatoes
  • 2 garlic bulbs
  • Few green chillies
  • A couple of tea spoons desi…
