I just wanted to share this quickly before it escapes me... We had a mexican inspired meal last night with friends and had a lot of left overs..So when I saw Laura's recipe from http://heywhatsfordinnermom.blogspot.com/ I knew what I was going to do with some of those left overs. Here is my quick simple using all leftovers:
- About 3/4 cups of torn lettuce leaves
- 3/4 handfuls of tortilla chips lightly smashed
- 1/2 cup cooked black beans with onion and ground cumin
- fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 cup grated mexican melting cheese
- salt & pepper
- 1 large heirloom tomato (those suckers are big!) chopped
- juice of one lime
- finely chopped chili
What I did: I keep bags of fresh mixed greens in my fridge. (I buy a couple different heads of lettuce, clean them, tear them up and store them in bags- So I always have my own mixed greens). I put a bag of greens in a bowl added the tortilla chips, chopped tomatoes, black beans, lime juice, salt & pepper, fresh cilantro, and grated cheese. Toss. To serve add a bit more fresh cilantro, grated cheese and for those that can handle it fresh chili.
FYI- There will be a few more mexican inspired recipes- I observed so much on our vacation!
