fiesta de tortilla de carne de arroz | Vibrant Weeknight Dinner


Turning up the heat on a Thursday night is the type of dynamite I like to hear about! Who said weeknight dinners should be monotonous? It is no secret that I am utterly obsessed with colorful food.  Nature is a majestic display of color that enriches our planet, so why not transport all those touches of color to our plates???

This meal is a succulent sensation. Placing a bit of rice , beef , a few fresh carrot sticks, cucumber and a bit of mayonnaise onto a piece of tortilla will be a life changing experience in your mouth.
