Sounds tasty! Would be helpful for hitting that protein goal too!


Seems extra delicious! Nice!


This has been my lunch staple for the last month.  It's really good and really easy.  I add jalepenos and onions to mine and it's awesome!

I've switched up to eating chicken/spinach salads for lunch for the last two weeks, but craving this stuff again!

What can I substitute for Heinz Tomato Ketsup? Can I just use a really Tomato and slice it as small as possible? I mean, I don't like taking high fructose corn syrup. I am really avoiding that now. Thanks! :)

That is actually a better option! You can do just slices of tomatoes like a hanburger or mash them with some spices. Comes out really good!

Heinz makes an organic ketsup that eliminates the HFCS. Also check your BBQ. I was able to find one at Walmart that didn't have HFCS.
