Breakfast Salad

Breakfast Salad with Soyrizo and Fried Egg

This is a super quick dinner I like to make when I’ve had a long day and don’t want to spend too much time cooking. Serves 1 and takes 10 mins max.


  • 1/2 cup Soy Chorizo (meat chorizo works too!)
  • 1 egg (option for 2 if more hungry)
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Black Beans (canned)
  • 1/4 cup Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 tbs Italian Dressing
  • Salt/Pepper to taste


Add black beans to a small pot, season with salt/pepper to your liking, and heat on medium high heat until warm, set aside. In a small pan, brown the chorizo until golden, set aside. In the same pan, cook your egg to your liking (I like mine fried over easy). Finally, top your spinach with the black beans, soy chorizo, egg, cheese and dressing. The end!

Curry Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of my go-to quick and easy weeknight meals, but I like to get creative and incorporate flavors outside of the typical Latin ones. I got inspired when I picked up pre-seasoned curry chicken fingers at Trader Joes and it turned out seriously good. I ate this several nights in a row.

The recipe below is for one serving, store your leftovers from each ingredient separately and make again! Or, use in a spinach salad!



Cook the curry chicken fingers according to the package instructions, 3-4 mins per side over medium heat. Set aside and store leftovers!

In a small sauce pan, heat your black beans and season to taste (I add a little salt, pepper and red pepper flake).

Over medium-high heat, heat a tortilla for approximately 1 min. Flip the tortilla over and layer on beans, chicken and goat cheese to half the tortilla. Let it warm 2-3 mins (or to the level of crispy you like your tortilla).

Add spinach and scallions and fold the tortilla in half. Serve with hot sauce!
