BBQ Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa | A Couple Cooks

We get it: you’re busy! Most evenings when you’re trying to juggle work, kids, school, and all the things, there isn’t much time to think about dinner. But might we suggest that with just a little bit of forethought, dinnertime can actually be…easy? There are nights where we have time to cook up a great recipe for our family, but other nights we rely on our easiest dinner recipes to make dinnertime quick and simple.

Here are our easiest dinner recipes for busy nights. Most of these are concepts that you can feel free to take your own spin on. Serve your seared tuna with whatever is on hand.
