Dinner: Cuban Style Black Beans with Peppers & Tortillas
1.5 cups of Cuban Style Black Beans with Peppers & Tortillas (recipe below), topped with 1/4 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1-2 servings Corn Tortilla Chips with a couple Tbsp jarred Medium Salsa (not pictured - I was still hungry after eating the above!)

Strawberry Spinach Smoothie Recipe:
Into blender put:

1 cup Fat Free All Natural Plain Yogurt
2 peeled Bananas
1 cup frozen/ thawed Organic Strawberries
1 packed cup Baby Spinach    

Blend & serve!


Cuban Style Black Beans with Peppers & Tortillas Recipe:
1 can Cuban Style Black Beans, drained and thrown into a hot pan with 2 cups frozen/ thawed Red, Yellow & Green Peppers, 1 tsp crushed Garlic, and 4 Small Soft Corn Tortilla (cut into bite sized pieces), and hot sauce to taste.  Cover and heat through, and serve with Cheddar Cheese!

This was meant to feed two, but after dividing, it didn't feel like enough food for a meal to me.  Next time I would put more Veggies in there to beef it up a bit so I wouldn't have to resort to the Chips and Dip like I did tonight!
