Mexican Food

Mexican Food

This is me, when I was about 19 years old, and it is taken at my then husbands best friends wedding. He was the best man at his first wedding, a long time ago in Chicago, Illinois! I was thin, and very anorexic during those years of my life! Only with Gods will, and grace that I am still alive!

Unchained Recipe Contest - Black Bean Burrito
Very Good 4.2/5
(12 ratings)

I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an “add a little of this and that” person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements! Fast Food Category

COOKING WITH CAITLIN'S Avocado Whip
Very Good 4.1/5
(16 ratings)

Despite the fact that this is perhaps the girliest guacamole ever, to the men out there, try it. I guarantee you that it is extremely tasty. And, I am going to venture to say that any guy that can explain that he "whipped the avocado into stiff peaks" will impress any girl.
