Another Pinned It. Did It. guest post with Meg! Looking forward to making these for Ellie and Jon, and I think they will be perfect for the backyard summer picnics I'm dreaming about on a daily basis over here. Read on for Meg's column.
I think this is one of my favorite meals that I’ve made to-date via Pinterest. We happen to be a household with food sensitivities and often times, with that, comes elaborate recipes or ingredient lists. What I love about this recipe is that it would be easy to adapt to how you’d like it or need it. But I’m serious when I say that the way it’s written is quite delicious.
I have a son who will be 2 years old next month. He is a fantastic eater, which I am so thankful for. But he is still a toddler when it comes to wanting to feed himself or pick out his own snacks. When this was a hit with him, my husband, and a home run for me, it became one we make on a regular basis.
The ingredient list is manageable and I love a meal that I can put together and have cleaned up before it’s ready to eat. They also freeze well so it’s nice to have them in the freezer on occasion.
I've served them with frozen corn warmed on the stove with green chiles and smoked paprika as well as frozen green beans sauteed with olive oil, lime juice, and garlic. Very simple side dishes but tasty and along the Tex Mex lines.
Additional Side Dish Serving Suggestions:
- Avocado and Romain Salad
- Black Bean And Corn Salad
- Summer Salad and Corn Chips
- Grilled Coconut-Glazed Corn

Note from Liz: Over here in my corner, I'm trying to "use Pinterest for good." I really see it as a community of people trying to see the beauty and possibility in their lives. I'm adding a few new features here on my blog inspired by or directly about Pinterest as a way to invite others to look for this beauty within a social media community. I look forward to seeing how it all unfolds. Connect with me on Pinterest here. Read other Pinned it. Did it. columns here.
