So sometimes you have to make random food items work for you. Especially when you have to live a gluten free Lifestyle. So today I’m sharing with you some random inventions of mine.
The first is these nachos:
So these are buffalo pork nachos. Yes you heard that right. We made a pork loin in the crock pot and then smothered it with buffalo sauce. Of course at home we had that as a regular meal. But I wanted to take left overs for lunch the next day. So I came up with this!
Heat the buffalo pork with half a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Put chips on a microwave safe dish. Top chips with the pork and bean mixture and then top with shredded cheese. Put back in the microwave for 1-2 min or until cheese is melted. And then what goes with buffalo well ranch of course. Drizzle a little ranch on top and you are good to go! So yummy and definitely a wake up from a boring work lunch. Ps it didn’t cost as much as going out either! Lol!
Next up is this salad
So for this salad I just started with a bag of salad. They are so easy to just keep in the fridge. I topped the salad with some canned chicken. Again super easy to have around and add some protein to your meal. Next I topped that with half a can of black beans drained and rinsed of course. And then a can of Rotel and finally some cheese. I wanted to kinda melt my cheese a little so I put the plate in the microwave for like 30 seconds. Topped with some ranch and there you go. A very filling and so satisfying lunch. Not just your regular chicken salad! 🙂
See even random cans in your cabinet (or maybe a drawer at work) can be combined to create something really good and fresh. What is your last lunch creation?
Until next time mangia!
