The 30-Minute Cooking From Frozen Cookbook by Carole Jones makes getting a delicious dinner on the table in 30 minutes a breeze, and it all starts by heading to your freezer.
There are lots of benefits for using frozen ingredients. First, frozen food items are an affordable option that allows year-round access to ingredients and produce that might not be in season. And if you didn’t know, these items are picked at the peak of their freshness and then frozen. Lastly, frozen ingredients are perfect to stock your freezer due to their long shelf life. And all the recipes in this cookbook don’t require thawing. Another win in our book.
FOR THE PICO, COMBINE:
FOR THE BOWL, HEAT:
Don't Skip The Lime!
While the fresh lime juice might seem like an unnecessary garnish, don’t skip that small addition at the end; it brightens and enhances every flavor in the bowl.
For the pico, combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
For the bowl, heat rice in the microwave according to package directions.
Heat beans in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl on high for 2 minutes.
Assemble bowls layering rice, steak mixture, and beans in four bowls. Top bowls with Cheddar, avocado, pico de gallo, and a squeeze of lime juice.
