I started the semester with a crazy-need to organize everything. My meals were out of whack, and you know how muchI prefer organization over chaos. That said, I decided to meal prep for an entire week! I thought it would be best to post a new “Law School Eats” series! Most of the meals cost around $3 per serving, make at least 4 servings, and they are so easy to prepare!
Need a 30-minute meal? This is a great go-to on a cold winter’s night.
Flavorful. Scrumptious. Just what you need if you’re missing some great home cooking.
1 rotisserie chicken, roughly pulled and chopped (grab one at your local deli!)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4-5 calabaza squash (zucchini works too!), cut into cubes (remove stem and end)
½ jalapeno, sliced (add more if you like the extra spice)
48 oz. of chicken broth
1 cup of water
1 can of Rotel (mild)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried cumin
1 teaspoon knorr tomato bouillon, chicken-flavored
salt & pepper, to taste
[Prep your ingredients!]
1. Use 1 large soup pot, add olive oil.
2. Add the Rotel, sauté for about 1 minute.
3. Add the chicken pieces and shreds to the pot, stir.
4. Chop the zucchini in bite-sized pieces. Add them to the pot.
5. Pour in the chicken stock.
6. If you prefer a bit more soup, add in the 1 cup of water.
7. Bring to a simmer.
8. Add in garlic powder, cumin, knorr, salt, pepper, and sliced jalapeno.
9. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until Calabaza is fork tender.
10. Serve yourself a bowl (or two) and enjoy!
11. You can store the calabaza dish for up to 1 week in the fridge, or three weeks in the freezer. This recipe makes for easy meal prep!
