This meal is a bit like a warm hug that lasts the perfect amount of time from someone you haven’t seen in awhile. It’s familiar, it’s cozy, it brings back some wonderful memories, and its easy. Not like that awkward half hug, side hug, or my personal nemesis the not welcome hug where one person goes in for the hug and the other person stands rigidly praying for it to end. I am usually a giver of these, not the receiver. It’s just awkward. But back to the good hug that you’ll get from this recipe. It’s one of those simple and hearty recipes that only takes a couple of minutes to throw together and tastes great. Personally I like it with some smushed avocado on top. You can also throw in some browned ground beef or turkey, sausage (yum!), and vegetarian crumbles if you want to add even more flavor.
