I know I can make this easy meal prep recipe and I’ve got a yummy dinner one night and easy grab and go lunches for AT LEAST a couple more days! This meal prep recipe for Guilt Free Mexican Hay Stacks is Soo Flippin’ good you might even think you’re at a popular chain restaurant… (cough cough) Chipolte… Feel free to mix it up and make some easy changes… For example I’ll use grilled chicken or lean steak instead of ground turkey or quinoa instead of brown rice.
