RETURN TO CORE – DAY 4
🎬 All the details of the days ingredients, tips, tricks, how tos and the occasional cute doggie are in my daily video…🐶🛒👩🏻‍🍳

🍱 LUNCH 🍱
MINI PEPPER TURKEY NACHOS
@misfitsmarket Organic Mini Peppers, Grape Tomatoes, Red Onion
@dunyaharvest Organic Red Kidney Beans
@shadybrookfarms 98% FF Turkey Breast
@krogerco Mild Taco Sauce
@officialaerogarden Hydroponic Lettuce
@krogerco Avocado
@muscofamilyoliveco Pitted Black Olives
@krogerco 0% Greek Yogurt
@hoosierhillfarm White Cheddar Powder* (1WP)

🔹 As an #experimentsineating test, I mixed 2tbsp of the White Cheddar Powder (1WP) with 2tbsp water and microwaved for 15 seconds. 💥OMG💥 soooooo good! It was thin but very strong in flavor. I will experiment with adding less liquid or maybe a little Cornstarch to thicken but this is definitely the answer to my queso quandary.

🥩 BEEFY CARNITA TIPS
Combine beef tips, carnita sauce and ½ red onion in slow cooker. Cook for 3hrs on High or 6hrs on Low.

🍚 INSTANT POT CILANTRO LIME BROWN RICE
🌀Cooked in @mychefiq 6Q Smart Cooker
Rinse rice well…
1:1 ratio – 1 cup rice + 1 cup liquid.
[I like to use stock but you can just use water]
I like a strong lime flavor so I add lime juice + zest to both the cooking water and afterwards.
22min – High Pressure + Natural Release
If you want a softer texture – increase water by ⅓-½c and increase time to 28min
