Burritos are your best bet for a quick weekday dinner. On your way home from work, stop and grab a pack of tortillas, sour cream, avocado and a rotisserie chicken.
In a bowl, create a mixture of grated cheese, some leftover veggies (bell peppers, avocados and carrots work well), some spices and leftover shredded chicken (or rotisserie chicken). Place it in the centre of a tortilla, roll it, and toast it on both sides with a little drizzle of olive oil.
10 Minute Sloppy Joes
Got a meat lover in you? Sloppy joes can be a great dinner option for you if you’ve got ground beef or turkey ready! A sloppy Joe is all the taste of a burger but without the hassle of preparing them!
Start by sauteing some chopped onions and garlic in a pan until soft, and adding in the ground meat with some spices and tomato sauce, and cooking it on high with the lid on until cooked. Remove from heat, add in some mustard and mix well. Spoon this mixture on one side of a sliced bun, and serve hot!

Boil the pasta and on the side, saute the veggies in some olive oil. Add some spices, tomato ketchup and grated cheese. Drain the pasta, and mix it with the veggie mixture. That’s it!
