It is time.

Time for an easy dinner, a simple snack, a quick lunch.

Let’s do this.

I did.


All it takes is a tortilla, some beans, and a sprinkle of cheese. Get some oil nice and hot. Fry ’em up. Eat ’em all. You’re gonna want to. Trust me.


Grab a handful of corn chips. Spoon out some salsa and Greek yogurt. Get ready to dip dip dip.




This was the first episode of the new show that I’m doing for I hope you enjoy it. More episodes to come soon!

Happy Eating!
