Time for another recipe from Steve to help you eat healthy, fast, efficiently – so you can get back to your creative works! This is a Nacho or Burrito bowl recipe depending on what you want – one mix served in two forms!
Makes 2 servings.
First, the basic mix!
- 1 14.5 oz cans black or pinto beans, drained and rinsed.
- 1 14.5 oz can tomatoes, drained (or about 2-3 good-sized diced tomatoes).
- Optional: About 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices.
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp crushed garlic (or about 1 tsp garlic powder)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
Take all of these ingredients, mix them, and microwave them until hot, stirring it. You can also dry-saute it without oil for a better taste.
Now how to serve them? You can do the following:
NACHOS: Just drop the mix on a pile of nachos and serve! Serve with a salad for a complete meal!
BURRITO BOWL: Make two bowls, and in each place 1 cup or so cooked rice, mixed with 1 to 1/2 cups shredded spinach or cabbage. Ladle the mix over the rice/spinach mixture and serve. It’s a complete meal!
This meal is a great, fast, tasty one I’ve grown very fond of. I originally invented the burrito bowl, and the nachos came as a later experiment – but now they’re popular in my household.
Oh, and keep in mind you can freeze the mixture for later . . .
