Yay! I’m back and ready to get back into the blogging groove again. Don’t get me wrong; spring break was a blast. We spent time at the beach and had a great time camping (I’ll be sure to get the pics and review up on the camping site later this week), but after a busy vacation, it’s nice to get back to the normal schedule of things (and get an hour or two break from the rugrats!) And I think the boys were ready to be back as well. Just look at this picture of the older two on the final day of camping:
Do you think we wore them out pretty good?!
So today’s meal is one of my old standbys and also one of my favorites. I call it Dump because it’s basically a “dump” of everything you have in your fridge. I love to make this when I have a bunch of veggies I need to use up. There are no real measurements when I cook this so bear in mind that even though I’ll attempt to give you a basic recipe to follow, this is really flexible and forgiving. You can switch out vegetables as well to suit your tastes and what you have available. Here’s what you’ll need:
Now, turn your heat down to medium and add in your frozen veggies next; for me that would be the peppers (yes they’re added in the picture above but I’m sure you’ll forgive me right?), and the corn. Stir to combine and let warm up for a minute or two. Next add your beans and tomatoes/peppers. Stir to combine. Finally add in your chicken base, lime juice, and cilantro and yep, you guessed it, stir to combine. Let it heat up and get hot and then test the flavor and adjust any spices as you see fit.
Finally, add the rice in and stir it up to complete this delicious one skillet dinner.

Teriyaki Mahi Mahi with Mang-O-So Delicious Salsa
oOH! That looks good! Better than the "Needs Salt" casserole my husband usually makes in a pinch…
Great pic of the kids!

Have discovered your blog post via live search the other day and absolutely love it. Continue the truly amazing work.
Saw your interview with Malia and had to come over and snag this recipe! Looks so yummy and reminds of living in Santa Fe!
