TikTok Recipe for the win!

 Ok we all have learned so much this past year... FROM TIKTOK... Ha! I know you have learned some hacks that you now use on a daily basis! I know I did! HA!

This recipe is my new favorite! SOOOO GOOD!






Everyone is doing this recipe with pasta and I will do that next time. This is my low carb version (nothing against pasta, I LOVE pasta too) 


Spaghetti Squash Feta tomato recipe!

What you need:

Spaghetti squash

Feta cheese

Cherry tomatoes

Garlic

Italian seasonings (I used a blend I have)

Olive oil


1. Preheat oven at 400F

2. Cut the squash in half, drizzle with olive oil. Lay Cut half down and cook for about 40 mins. 




3. In a separate oven dish, add cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, italian seasoning, garlic and olive oil (i know I don't have measurements here, I did a one serving for myself so only had 8 cherry tomatoes a small chunk of feta, 2 small garlic cloves.drizzled olive oil, baked for about 20 mins watch it sizzle! So depending on your serving, add more or less! I don't think you can go wrong here!




4. Use a fork to pull the strands from the spaghetti squash

5. Mix the cooked feta, tomato into a yummy creamy sauce

6. ADD the spaghetti squash and enjoy!!! SOOOOOO GOOD!

Mama T’s baked Empanadas

My version of baked empanadas! 





I buy these pre-made empanada dough shells at my local Walmart. I keep them in the freezer and always have them on hand for these yummy beef empanadas! 




These can be made with left over chilli (yup) or left over ground beef from taco Tuesday! 


The recipe for the beef stuffing can really be anything you like. Mine is always different. Some ingredients I do love in the mixture though would be, cumin, paprika, adobe seasoning, cilantro diced potato and black beans. (Be sure to drain excess liquid) make the day before and refrigerate the mixture over night so you can scoop in the shells cold. 


Once we have the beef mixture and dough ready, we can stuff them! 





Ingredients for my beef empanadas 


Beef mixture

Empanadas dough 

Cheese (marble or mozzarella, monetary Jack is yum too, really any you like, experiment)

Boiled eggs (cut them up to bite size)

Olives (I usually use the small stuffed ones but I only had these sliced ones today) 


Eggwash 

Baking sheet and parchment paper 


Preheat oven 400F




Follow these steps! 

Scoop beef mixture

Add cheese

Add a piece of boiled egg 

Add some olives 





Brush edges with egg wash and use a fork to press down the edges. 


Brush the full empanadas with egg wash. 






Put them in the oven for 25min or until golden brown 





These are soo good! My family eats these all up! You can put anything in them really! I also made some stuffed with hot salami and cheese! 





I usually make extra  and freeze some for easy lunches, just pop them in the microwave or toaster oven. 


Enjoy!
