8-Layer Dinner

I’m a big fan of Mexican food and one dish meals, so I was really excited to find this recipe.

The dish came from one of my favourite cookbooks, Gourmet Nutrition and was pretty quick and easy to prepare; not to mention, jam packed with flavour.

If you’re not feeling some of the veggies in this recipe, you can definitely switch them out with different ones, or even use a soup base instead of the salsa. This is super versatile meal. ????

The perfect post-workout feast, especially when paired with a side salad, this is a dish your whole family will enjoy.  I know because mine did. ????

Hope you like it!
