Well, money is always tight, but sometimes we get cravings that we simply must indulge!
As I was pondering dinner last night, I ended up craving one of those delicious Qdoba burritos.
I scoured my freezer and pantry for something quick to make, caught the eye of some cilantro in my crisper and thought, "I could totally copycat Qdoba."
Our "burritos" were put together using flour taco-sized tortillas, a yummy black bean mixture, cilantro citrus rice, and shredded cheddar. I also made a new batch of the salsa I posted on an earlier date and served with bottomless tortilla chips. We were all happy campers!
Black Bean Mixture
2 cans black beans (3 1/2 C. cooked)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 packet dry enchilada sauce mix
Place beans and tomatoes in pan, sprinkle dry sauce mix on top, and cook until warmed through and beans are soft enough to smash with a fork.
Cilantro Citrus Rice
3 cups water
3 cups instant rice
2 Tbsp Cilantro leaves (fresh)
1 Tbsp Lemon or Lime juice
1/8 tsp salt
Put the water and cilantro in a small saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Add rice and allow to simmer until all water is absorbed. Sprinkle with salt and lemon or lime juice.
To assemble "burritos" scoop rice into shell, scoop bean mixture on top, sprinkle with cheese. These are filling and good for you. 8 WW Points for one large item (1 medium flour tortilla, 1/2 c rice, 2/3 c bean mixture and 2 Tbsp. shredded cheddar).
