You are amazing. I miss you.
Now, as you know, I have a love of Mexican Food. Love. So, when my recipe for refried beans that was supposed to take 10 minutes or less, I couldn’t wait to try it!
We tried this to use inside burritos. My friend used white beans (which are very pretty), but I went a little more traditional… or so I thought. I used one can of Kidney Beans and one can of Black Beans. I knew they would taste delicious, because… well they just are delicious. What I didn’t expect (but was thrilled to discover) was the mixture turning a vibrant purple! When put on a tortilla with some brown rice, freshly homemade guacamole, hot peppers and salsa, it looked so full of flavor and nutrients. (I also topped with some fresh spinach, but you won’t see this in the pictures.) We ate these for dinner 3 nights in a row. Even as leftovers, they’re so yummy!
*note: We couldn’t find Pepper Jack Cheese in our grocery store, so we used Jalapeno Jack which worked wonderfully.
We will be making these again for sure!

I hope things on your end are going well. Things here are still busy, but manageable. My 30 Day Challenge starts on Thursday! Are you going to be home for Easter? Our books have been ‘shipped’ so we should get them any day!
I love you,
