Are you a fan of Mexican food?

for one am a huge fan of Mexican food!!! Taco seasoning is always something that I'm ready to put in my meal...of course...only if the flavor would be appropriate. :P This is a recipe that I came up with today...it's super easy, and full of Mexican flavor!!! Enjoy! 


Mexican Turkey, Bean, & Tomato Fry

1 lb. ground turkey 

coconut oil (unflavored, or you could use olive oil.) 

2 cups black beans (do not rinse or drain.) 

2 cups canned diced tomatoes (do not drain.)

2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. taco seasoning 

salt 

pepper

onion powder 

1 and 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1.) Put oil in frying pan, enough so there is a decent amount on the bottom of the pan, your oil is going to help give some moistness to the dish. Fry turkey in oil. 

2.) while frying turkey, in a separate bowl combine beans, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and add salt and pepper to taste.

3.) once meat is done sprinkle onion powder over it. Add to taste, everyone likes a different amount of flavor. (You can always add more onion powder later.) Add the bean and tomato mixture, let cook until some of the wetness has cooked out, and it's thicker. Or cook until it's the desired thickness.

4.) sprinkle cheese over the top, and cover. Once cheese is melted serve and enjoy

It really Happened!!!


I was reading my bible this morning, and I was reading about when Jesus came to John the Baptist, and asked him to baptize him. And I was thinking, wow this really happened. I mean, I know it did, but when I just sit there, and think about how it really, IT REALLY HAPPENED. That they were just as real and alive as I am. And it just gives me a feeling, I can't really explain it. I guess I should call it, the feeling of amazement. Just at the awe of how God did everything. And that these people that we read about in a book, John, Peter, Paul, and our very own Savior, they were alive on this earth. And it never fails to make me be in awe. 
And how, when Jesus arose out of the water after being baptized, how the Heavens were opened, and the spirit of God himself, descended upon his sons shoulder in the form of a dove. Just think of how amazing it is just reading about it! But, just sit there and imagine...can you imagine being there? Seeing all of that take place?! Just thinking of how John the Baptist stood there close to Jesus, and saw all of this take place...it's just amazing. And how John himself was chosen, he was chosen to baptize the Savior of the world. The man who was going to save his soul, he was supposed to baptize him. How? Can you imagine being in John's shoes? Having Jesus himself come to you, and ask you...YOU to baptize him. Now, I'm not saying I'm just as good as John. Goodness knows I have a long way to go just to be as good as Him, let alone our Savior, but trying to put yourself in his shoes...what would you do? What would you be thinking? I honestly think I would just be in a daze...

Anyways, it's sorta an odd post, I just wrote my thoughts down.


Scripture for this post from Matthew 3
Have a blessed week!
