More About the Recipes in This Prep Session:

Recipe #1: Vegetarian Tortilla Soup (x2)

This one-pot wonder may be lighter fare, but your appetite will be more than satisfied thanks to hearty beans, brown rice, veggies, and bold flavors.

Serving Suggestions:

• Top with your favorite Mexican toppings, like crushed tortilla chips, diced avocado or red onion, cilantro, fresh lime juice, shredded cheddar, etc.

• Serve with cornbread.

• Freeze leftovers in single-serving glass bowls with lids or mason jars. Thaw overnight and warm up for a healthy lunch. Works great to send in a thermos in a lunchbox, too.

Mix It Up:

• Replace the brown rice with cauliflower rice for lower carbs and more veggies.

• Replace the corn with raw, diced sweet potato. It’s tasteless but adds nutrition.

• Stir in shredded rotisserie chicken or leftover seasoned taco meat at the end.

      Recipe #2: French Dip Sandwiches (X2)

      My kids cheer when they see this meal on the menu plan. It’s fall-apart tender by dinnertime.

      Serving Suggestions:

      • Use a hearty bread like ciabatta or steak rolls for your sandwich. A sourdough baguette sliced lengthwise and cut into sandwich-size portions would also work.

      • Give each person a small ramekin of the au jus that’s leftover in the cooker for dipping (the best part!).

      • Side dish ideas include: Autumn Chopped Salad or Cranberry Spinach Salad, raw veggie sticks with your favorite dip, sweet potato chips, apple slices, or grapes.

      Mix It Up:

      • Serve this shredded beef and its juices over mashed potatoes or polenta.

      • Enjoy it a la carte with a hearty side dish like Ultimate Twice-Baked Potatoes or Easy Hash Brown Casserole.

      • Use the meat on a grilled cheese sandwich and dip in the au jus. Yum!

          Recipe #3: Killer Carnitas (x2)

          In this versatile big-batch recipe, pork shoulder is slow cooked (or pressure cooked) in a complex, citrus-infused marinade. Then, it’s shredded and broiled until slightly crisp. Enjoy it in myriad ways for a delectable Mexican-inspired dinner.

          Serving Suggestions:

          Serve a la carte or in warm corn tortillas. We suggest topping with shredded cabbage, diced avocado, pico de gallo, Cojita or Queso Fresco cheese crumbles, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, Quick Pickled Red Onions, and Cilantro Lime Aioli.

          Mix It Up:

          Use the meat in burritos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, or on top of nachos or a salad.
