Update Oct 1 Meals:fridge to plate in 15 minutes

Postby Victoria Family Meals on Mon Aug 11, 2014 2:51 pm

Epicure wants you and your family to eat healthy but also recognizes the need for convenience and speed!

What if I told you you could make a healthy yummy meal in 15 minutes? That you can have food on the table before delivery could and that it would be much cheaper?

Good Food. Real Fast. has been created so families could save money, save time and eat healthy.

This week our family tried out Chicken Fajitas from the Good Mexican. Real Fast. combo.

Using our Square Steamer I made Chicken Fajitas in the microwave in less than 10 minutes. While it cooked in the Microwave for 8 minutes, I chopped up veggies and grated cheese.

My family loved it and my hubby said he couldn't tell that it was made in microwave.
