All microwavable food is totally bad for you, right?  Well, this isn’t.  And sometimes you get busy and don’t have time to “cook” and need something that is preppable and microwavable.  This sprung from my 15-weeks-pregnant-and-go-from-not-hungry-to-ravenous-in-zero-to-sixty.

  • corn tortillas
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed- after rinsing, put into a small plastic container
  • 1 can Mexicorn- put in a separate container
  • cheddar cheese- shred yourself and then put into another container
  • Aidells Carmelized Onion chicken meatballs- in another container
  • Mrs. Dash Spicy Jalepeno seasoning
  1. Take 3 corn tortillas per person and wrap in a paper towel.  Microwave for 30 seconds to steam them so they won’t break open and make you go all Hulk Smash when you dribble black beans all over your lap while trying to eat and watch How I Met Your Mother.  Hypothetically, of course.
  2. Place tortillas on a plate.  Sprinkle cheese, black beans, corn, seasoning, and 1 chopped meatball per tortilla onto tortilla.
  3. Microwave for 60 seconds or until steamy.
  4. Since your ingredients are prepped into containers, you can easily keep this in the fridge if you have leftovers (or double or even triple the recipe) to be able to make all week.  This would also be great for college dorm meals or when wife goes out of town so husband doesn’t eat frozen waffles for a week straight.
