This recipe makes a great go-to meal for busy parents or people. It’s super-quick, super-easy, super-filling, and super-nutritious. All you need is a few minutes during your kid’s nap time, and—boom! You have a real meal to enjoy, and it didn’t come out of a box.
I recommend baking a bunch of potatoes in advance to have them handy for the rest of the week, or you can simply “bake” the potato in the microwave right beforehand. You can make your own black beans and salsa, use leftovers, or even just use store-bought brands in a pinch. I do, of course, recommend spending the extra five minutes to make salsa—but I promise I won’t judge you if you don’t.
