Taco Tuesday: Quinoa burritos, cilantro lime rice, refried beans and mango avocado salad



Did I ever mention how much I love Taco Tuesday? I do, mainly because I love Mexican food. We never go out for it, other than the Big Man's love of Taco Bell

 (I prefer Qdoba, but that's besides the point)

So, I bring the Mexican home to us...and tonight's feast is quinoa burritos!


1 c quinoa, cooked in 1 c veg broth & 1 c water

tortillas
1 can Amy's black bean soup

1/2 c shredded cheese + 1/4 c shreddded cheese

1 c frozen corn

1/2 c scallions, diced
1 can enchilada sauce

Preheat oven to 375.
mix the corn, quinoa, soup and cheese together in a bowl. spoon into tortillas, roll up and place in a baking dish. Top with enchilada sauce and scallions. Bake for 30 minutes.

Cilantro lime rice
1 c rice cooked

1 handful cilantro torn
2 tbsp lime juice

heat up cooked rice with lime juice and cilantro until warm

Refried beans, heated out of the can

Mango & avocado salad

dice mango & avocado, serve together on a plate
