Party of Two: 5 Recipes to Try With a Friend
Grab a buddy and try these recipes meant for more than one
You’ve been itching to try that new recipe ever since you faved it. You swing by the store on your way home to pick up ingredients. You set aside time in the week to conquer the kitchen. You cook up a storm, put out a few fires, and at last – you have a beautiful meal – all for yourself.
You eat it in two minutes flat...and then start washing the dishes. It’s hard to find motivation to cook, especially if you’re #solo and preparing meals just for yourself. Plus, some recipes give you portions that seem to feed an entire football team...too much for one mouth to tackle. Leftovers are only exciting for so many days!
Lightbulb: What if you found a friend to help ease the cooking struggle?! You each bring half the ingredients. You each do half the dishes. And you each get a full stomach from just the right amount of food.
Say your friend wants to go out? Suggest a cooking night at your place instead! Here are some buddy-friendly recipes that are perfect for sharing. Snap a culinary selfie with your BFF and share with us @GoodNesUSA and use #ThanksGoodNes for #ChefBuddies.
Chicken Salad Tostadas
Crunchy tortilla, juicy chicken, just as spicy as you like – we love these tostadas! They only take 10 minutes to prepare, and you’ll have enough for you both to enjoy. Get creative with your toppings, and don’t forget to bring your favorite salsas!
Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
This is one of our most-loved recipes, and it’s perfect for sharing! It just doesn’t get better than juicy chicken and melted cheese bundled up in a warm tortilla, smothered in sauce. If you want to mix it up, try swapping red enchilada sauce for green. And don’t forget to top it with green onions! Here’s a helpful video (link to recipe video from Youtube) to show you how it’s done.
Baked Parmesan Truffle Fries
Ever wanted to try making your own fries? Well, why not go big and make fancy parmesan truffle fries? It’s much easier to justify treating yourself when you’ve got a friend around. Plus you can tell them to bring the not-so-secret ingredient: white truffle oil. #SoExtra
All the flavor of a big juicy burger, but in bite-sized, shareable sliders! Not only are these great for sharing with friends at a gathering, but they’re easier to make than homemade burgers. Just follow the Stouffer’s instructions, and then bring whatever toppings you want!
It doesn’t get more shareable than popcorn! Host a movie night at your place and pull out the popcorn! Once your kernels are popped and ready, you can have this sweet treat ready to go in just a few minutes and pour yourselves each a bowl.
