Microwave Cookery: A Quick Solution to a Growling Stomach


Whether you live in residence or off-campus, a microwave could be your key to a quick, healthy, and inexpensive meal. Yes, your microwave is capable of making more than just popcorn, TV dinners and Easy Mac (although they do have their time and place) – in fact, the culinary possibilities are endless! To give you an idea of what I mean, here is the first of three recipes that can be a part of a three-course dinner. All you need are a few simple ingredients and a microwave…


Appetizer: Mexican Bean Dip


1 can of refried beans

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 package of taco seasoning mix

1 small onion, chopped

3 drops of hot sauce


Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and mix well. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH for 6 minutes, stir at the 3 minute mark. Add pepper or garnish as desired. Serve with corn chips.
