Meatless Monday Recipe: Tex-Mex Skillet

I began my ‘Meatless Monday’ adventure in the beginning of the year after trashing my body during the holidays.

I told my husband, he didn’t have to do it with me, but he actually enjoys it! It’s been fun and exciting looking for new recipes and even more eating them! Who knew meatless meals could be so good?!! (LOL I’m sure vegetarians!)

We had Tex-Mex Skillet tonight and we can’t get enough of it!

1 sm onion (chopped)

2 lg garlic cloves (minced)

1 tbsp olive oil

2 lg red bell peppers (diced)

1 cup corn (frozen or can)

14 oz can diced tomatoes

1 tbsp cumin (divided)

1/2 tbsp taco seasoning (divided)

My  husband and I really enjoyed this meal. It made several servings and made tasty leftovers.

I didn't have avocados, but it was still delicious.

It was another successful ‘Meatless Monday’. I look forward to this day and can even see myself have another meatless day. Hope y’all enjoy!!
