Habanero Mango Shrimp Bowl

Sometimes you want to make a healthy meal with as little mess as possible and this habanero mango rubbed shrimp bowl hits on both requirements. You can use white rice, brown rice, black beans or quinoa as the base of this bowl. Heck I used rice and black beans. The combinations are almost limitless. Well…I don’t know about limitless, because numbers hurt my head but there are a lot of different combinations.

I used my homemade habanero mango rub (which you can purchase here) for the shrimp. You can control the amount of heat with the amount of rub that you apply. I like mine hot so of course I added more. The rub hits you with a pleasant heat and then the sweetness of the mango really cools it down.

You can almost add whatever vegetables you have around. For this recipe I diced fresh tomatoes, orange bell pepper and avocado then added that to my base of rice and black beans. Topped with a little bit of homemade ranch dressing (try our ranch seasoning here) and for me some Sriracha and you have a healthy one dish meal.

For this shrimp bowl you can add whatever toppings you like. Make this bowl special for your family by adding more or taking some away. Customize it to your family’s likes or dislikes. Thanks for stopping by Life44…live, laugh, love & learn.

Zesty Pot Roast

I learned about Mississippi pot roast a few years ago and that is the only way I cook my roast. What is a Mississippi pot roast? Mississippi pot roast is a roast that is slow cooked in a crock pot along with a stick of butter, a packet of ranch mix, a packet of au jus gravy and pepperoncini. Its a meal that you can easily drop into the crock pot on the way to work and when you get home cook some noodles and add some carrots, celery and onions.

This recipe came about because the wife bought a pack of zesty ranch seasoning mix. I really did not know what to do with it since I am not a big fan of dip mixes and I make and sell my own ranch seasoning which is so much better (yes that was a shameless plug). So instead of using my ranch mix I decided to use the zesty ranch mix and it really kicked up the flavor. It got me thinking about making a Habanero Ranch mix (another plug).
