We are enjoying day 3. So far, the weather has been wonderful. We have had sleepovers, an afternoon at the park, much bike riding and playing outdoors and even 3 XL pizza shared with the neighbors last night outside. Fun. In between all of this, I have been squeezing in my work.
For today, Wednesday, I had some burritos from an old Rachael Magazine (which the page is dateless unfortunately) slated for dinner. I cannot seem to find the recipe online so I am going to share it here. So simple and from my taster bites straight out of the pot, extra yummy too.
Southwestern Burrito Bar (I think it was recommended for a party in the mag)
In a large skillet, simmer 1lb lean ground beef, stirring to break up the meat. Add a 16 oz jar salsa, 15 oz can of black beans, rinsed and a 10 oz bag of corn, thawed. Season with salt and cook through. Serve with flour tortillas and your favorite burrito fixins.
** Ok, I only had about a 1/3 of a jar of salsa so I added 3/4 or a can of enchilada sauce to that. My corn was from a can...I made due with what I had on hand and it was great.
Another aside, after I made the Deen Brothers lime chicken, I saved all of the left over meat removed from the bones. Yesterday, I mixed some of the meat with ranch dressing and added that to a soft tortilla lined with lettuce and I sprinkled bbq sauce on top--it was delicious. I am having that again for lunch tomorrow.
Happiness is quicky, easy but tasty meals. If only my kids would eat them too...
