Mexican minced meat and bean chilli. Can be prepared very quickly. We were afraid that beans will blanket out other ingredients, but we were wrong and I am glad about that. We wanted something hot, and we got it 🙂

Meatballs in spicy sauce

When I saw this recipes I immediately wanted to make them. The main reason – meatballs are baked in an oven, so you don’t have to stand near the stove. I made them already a few time and both times they came out really good. So I just need to add this recipe hear in my blog. You should try them too 🙂 By the way, when I made them, I didn’t have bread crumbs, that’s why I used oat brans. But it didn’t change the taste, just made meatballs healthier.

White beans soup

Simple things are good things 🙂 I can’t argue with this. This soup is perfect for warming after cold day. Products are simple and almost all are in our fridge or pantry. Just don’t forget to boil beans a day before and you’ll prepare this soup very quickly.

This dish was prepared very long time ago. I even thought to delete photos because I couldn’t find from which book I chose it. But accidentally this week I found it, so in hurry to put it in here. In spite I prepared this dish long time ago, I still remember that it is quick and very easy. So suits for quick dinner perfectly.
