In a matter of minutes you can be enjoying this yummy dinner. Perhaps you already have these ingredients at home or may just have to purchase the meat and avocado. By now you know that I use avocado daily. It is one of the healthiest veggies that you can add to your diet. (I will have more avocado goodies and info in upcoming posts).

Approximate Total Cost: $9.03 (or $4.52 per person)

¼ c of olive oil (or less to add to the meat marinade and also, for the sauté pan) (.55)

1 box of Roasted Garlic Couscous cooked according to package instructions ($1.98)
Season your beef strips with olive oil and Adobo, set aside.
Prep the onion and garlic and add to the beef, set aside.
Clean and cut the mushrooms.
Add olive oil to a pan, when hot, sauté the mushrooms, onion and garlic until golden.
Sprinkle with ½ tsp. of adobo, remove from pan and set aside.
Prepare Couscous according to the package instructions (it takes less than 7 minutes.)
Bring the pan to med high and sauté the beef strips just until they begin to turn brown.
Add the veggies that you sauté earlier and stir until they all mix.
By now your Couscous is done. (Follow the package info for your cooked couscous)
Plate and garnish with chopped cilantro and avocado. Drizzle with olive oil all over.
HACK: You can also make this dish with chicken tenders or pork. Or if you are vegetarian, just use Tofu instead of beef or chicken and season well. Serve it with a salad of your choice.
