What’s Cooking

This week for our new recipe we tried Southern Living’s Chicken Enchiladas. They were good; however, I would have preferred a little more spice and I think if I make them again I will add some jalapeno to the sauce. I made them in the morning and the put them in the fridge until dinner time which was nice. Anything I can make while the babies nap and cook later makes life much easier.

Last week I made quick and easy Crispy Bean and Cheese Burritos. The recipe is below.I thought they were great and super easy. When I told Jason I was making a dinner without meat his response was, “but we can add some chicken right?” So I ended up putting some left over shredded chicken in the burritos. We will definitely make these again. I didn’t end up getting pictures of either recipe. Dinner time is a little crazy and it just didn’t happen. I’ll try harder next week.

Bean and Cheese Burritos

  • 1  bag (3-1/2 ounces)  boil-in-bag brown rice
  • 1  cup  salsa
  • 1/3  cup  chopped cilantro
  • 1    ripe avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1  tablespoon  lime juice
  • 6    soft taco-size flour tortillas
  • 1  cup  shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1  can (15.5 ounces)  black beans, drained and rinsed


Prepare rice according to package directions. Drain rice and place in a bowl. Stir in salsa and cilantro; set aside. In a small bowl, gently stir together avocado pieces with lime juice; set aside.

Place tortillas on work surface and sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese in center of each. Top cheese with 1/4 cup black beans. Place 1/3 cup rice mixture over beans then divide avocado pieces among tortillas. Fold up like an envelope; repeat with remaining tortillas.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat top and bottom of burritos with nonstick cooking spray. Place 3 burritos in skillet, seam-side down; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Turn burritos over and cook another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining burritos, reducing heat if they get too browned.
