I’m a big believer in Sunday meal prep. I don’t always make the time for it, but when I do I like to think of it as taking care of future Jen. Cooking dinner on weeknights can be a rushed, tiresome ordeal whereas making meals for the week on a Sunday afternoon can take on an almost zen-like quality. It’s relaxing. I turn on some music, maybe have a glass of wine… and I get down to business.
This Mexican tortilla casserole is a perfect recipe to prepare for the week because it’s fast, easy and it will keep in the refrigerator for several days. You can also cut it into single serving portions and freeze the leftovers. It makes great leftovers. It’s cheesy, flavorful and filling. Whether you’re preparing it in advance for the week or making it to serve on the same day, this is an incredibly satisfying meal.
