This post is a collaboration with Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. “on behalf of the Beef Checkoff. I received compensation, but all opinions are my own”. 30 Minute Mexican Frittata with Beef.

My love for a good frittata recipe runs deep. Frittatas are extremely versatile and can be served for any meal during the day. My brand-new Mexican Frittata serves the entire family in a nourishing and filling way because the main ingredient is 93/7 Ground Beef. It is also filled with creamy eggs, onions, tomatoes, green chilies and topped with avocado slices, tomatoes and drizzled with avocado ranch.

Mexican Frittata

As a momma who runs the household and kitchen, I have to be strong, both physically and mentally. I love adding beef to my recipes because the nutrients found in beef keep me feeling fueled and focused for hours. It is equally important that my husband and kids eat foods, such as beef, that will keep them full until the next meal and give them enough strength to get through their day in a positive way.

Mexican Frittata

I love the fact that this frittata recipe can be tailored in 3 different satisfying ways; adult, child and baby. Sometimes a big meal like this can be overwhelming for kids and toddlers. I love deconstructing recipes in a way that takes the stress away and allows my kids to approach it in an easy way. Additionally, fruit is a great side dish to add with this meal to keep it healthy and fresh.

Cooking a healthy meal sometimes means that you have to make 15 different options to please everyone. 4 years ago when I decided to change my lifestyle to Paleo, I made a rule that I would only cook one meal and everyone would either choose to eat it or figure out their own meal. Needless to say, my husband began to get on board and now enjoys every meal I create.

Mexican Frittata

In my kitchen, I love cooking and creating recipes with beef. As I mentioned earlier, that’s the main ingredient in my Mexican Frittata recipe. I love the fact that beef gives me, and my family the strength we need to be our best selves. In addition, I love the fact that beef has protein, iron and zinc that support healthy brain development and function now and for the future.

Can this Mexican Frittata be frozen?

Absolutely! I cut this Mexican Frittata into portion sized squares and put add to an air tight freezer container. I usually will make a big batch and heat up for an easy weekday breakfast for me and the family. They will last in the freezer for up to 3 months if stored correctly.

This will make a big batch of Avocado Ranch. Store the leftovers in the fridge for a couple of days. It may turn brown after that due to the avocado.

    This Mexican frittata is so good! I’ve made it 3-4 times and every time it’s a crowd pleaser. Due to less grocery trips lately, I substituted shredded chicken instead of beef and that version was also great. Thanks for continually making great, versatile recipes to share!

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

✨Pickle Boats✨
2 @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouches
2 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons red onion chopped
salt/pepper
2 large pickles, sliced lengthwise 

Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds to create boats. Mix the tuna together with the mayo and red onions. Fill each pickle with the tuna.

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
