I like simple things. I especially like simple things that are really, really good. You know what else I like? Creating a whole meal out of things you (could) have on hand any day. I also like gardens. Surprisingly, our garden had not given up just yet. A few things have had to be “removed” due to their size and productivity level. The heirloom tomato plant looks pathetic… and yet we’re still getting tomatoes. Lots and lots of heirloom tomatoes that have been made into delicious pasta sauce, put into weekly salads, and made into delicious and fresh salsa. Actually that last one is a lie… or it actually hasn’t happened yet (but it will). The tomatoes I used in this particular dish came from a co-workers garden as did the peppers. So absolutely incredibly fresh and delicious it had to be made into a meal. So here, for your Meatless Monday, you get two recipes. Salsa + a base.
- jalapeno peppers
- brown rice tortilla (or a corn tortilla)
- refried beans
- cumin, to taste
And if you’ve already eaten dinner tonight? Taco Tuesdays sound pretty fantastic as well…
Yay for one of the toughest days of the week being over! Only 4 more days til the weekend :).
