This recipe gets its name from the double layer of soft tortillas and hard taco shells stuffed with beef, refried beans, and cheesy goodness. Inspired by the popular fast-food version, our taco is bigger and offers bright, fresh flavors but still puts up better numbers than the drive-through original. Don’t believe us? Instead of wasting money on takeout, this flavorful chicken and rice recipe is easy to replicate at home. I can make this at home instead of going out for Chinese. A simple yet hearty vegetarian meal makes for a Meatless Monday that will make giving up meat, even just for one day, a lot easier. We turned up the flavor with this Chinese-style barbecue dish, capturing the essence of great barbecue without relying on meat and giving us one more reason to fire up the grill.
Once you get used to it, cooking and eating clean recipes is a snap, even during busy weeknights. For those strictly following a clean-eating diet, these Cooking Light recipes fit the bill. This one-pan meal is a crowd-pleaser and testament to how 4 ingredients can come together to form a supremely satisfying dish, ready in a flash. We broil the steak over the veggies so the meat juices baste them as they cook. Choose multifaceted flat iron steak. Butchered from the shoulder chuck, it gives you the best of both beefy worlds: One end of the cut is tender and mild, while the opposite end has sirloin-like chew and deep, mineral flavor. Shaving raw root veggies into a side-dish salad is a fantastic approach. They’re ready in just a few minutes, their earthy flavors stay vibrant, and a simple vinaigrette tenderizes them while retaining some crunch. Toss the salad with ample vinaigrette, which does double duty: It lightly softens and “cooks” the raw veggies, and its tangy, zesty flavor complements the meaty tuna so that the fish doesn’t need a sauce of its own. Traditional hashes are often tossed together from various leftovers found languishing in the fridge, but we’re bringing them back as stars of the dinner table, and for great reason. Feeling the need for extra protein? Add an extra egg to your serving.
