I’m always looking for budget-friendly meals that incorporate whole foods.

 

This healthy meal has a rainbow of color and is super cheap to make!

 

The quinoa really helps to stretch out the other ingredients, and they are seasoned southwest style with flavors like cumin, smoked paprika and chili.

Quick and Easy High-Protein Salad

I love how all the flavors in this dish are so complimentary, and the lime juice really makes everything pop and taste so fresh!

 

For this recipe I used a McCormick® ONE packet from Meijer in the flavor Southwest Chicken and Vegetables (don’t worry, it’s vegan!) and it was so nice to not have to measure any spices, I just sprinkled the whole packet in and it was perfectly seasoned!

 

The packets are made with McCormick spices, have no artificial flavors, make for easy prep and clean up and seriously simplify cooking on busy nights.
