Another Pinterest Challenge!  Quick and Easy!

I'm so loving this Pinterest Recipe...thanx to Carlsbad Cravings :)

I use a pizza pan to lay out all my vegetable mis-en-place :)  

Woah! When I saw this sauce is hot! I highly suggest put half the chili paste and taste and add more to your comfort. 

Breaking down the ground beef, then draining the excess oil. 

Added the sauce.  Yum!

Yum Yum Presentation!

Oh yeah! And the rest into the freezer for the rest of the week.  What I do?  I cook four dishes and place the leftovers in reusable containers for availability for the rest of the two weeks.  So I only cook every two weeks :)
