We are going to have a record hot day today. 106 degrees. That is too hot to cook, even too hot to grill, so what do you make? Quick and easy meals that require minimal cooking.
First up Pasta Caprese:
Then how about some Fajitas? I made my own fajita seasoning and used some really nice sirloin. The peppers were the cutest little mini-sweet peppers:
Mix together the following and store in an airtight container.
- 2 tbsp chili powder (I used a combo of chili and ancho chili powders)
- 3 tbsp corn starch
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1/2 tsp cumin
Each meal took a little less than 15 minutes to put together and cooking time was minimal, so no heating up the already hot kitchen. Later in the week I’m making a macaroni salad for a going away dinner, recipe and photos later. Until then…stay cool.
