Back to School with Thrive

Heather Jaques who is a Thrive consultant approached us and asked if we would be willing to do a Thrive review, and of course, we said yes we Love Thrive…

She was excited to share with us some of their newest products that are perfect for moms like us and you.

Here is our take and video review of the new Simple Plate and To Go’s. 

Grab from your box:
Colby Jack Cheese 
Instant Refried Beans 
Chef’s Choice Seasoning 
Lime Powder 
Grilled Seasoned Chicken 
Veggie Mix
Chopped Onions 
Green Chili Peppers 
Red Bell Peppers 
Tortilla Blend
Grab from your pantry:
Olive Oil 
Salt (optional) 
Cholula Hot Sauce (optional) 
Chili Powder 
Kitchen gadgets:
2 Medium sauté pans
medium sauce pot 
large bowl
 measuring cups
rolling pin 
1: Combine tortilla blend, olive oil, and water. Knead for 5 minutes on floured surface, adding more flour or water if needed. We used a KitchenAid mixer for this part. Form into equal balls and flatten with palm of hand. Cover and let rest10–12 minutes
2: In the meantime, refresh the Colby jack cheese with water in a small container with a lid. Tumble and set aside. Allow to soften by tumbling every few minutes
3: In a medium sauce pot, combine refried beans, water, chef’s choice seasoning, lime powder, butter, 
cumin, chili powder, and salt (optional) and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 4–5 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes
4: After tortillas have rested, roll one into a 6–7inch circle. Cook tortilla in a greased sauté pan over high heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat with each tortilla
5: To finish the beans, add cholula (optional) and seasoning as desired. Fold half of the colby jack cheese into the beans. Set aside the rest of the cheese to top the tacos
6: For taco filling, in a medium sauté pan add water, veggie mix, grilled seasoned chicken, cilantro, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add butter and season to taste. Serve with your favourite toppings!
