Journey With Cookbooks #7

So last night I ventured into another recipe from the two cookbooks…still the Frontier Cookbook. We had some leftover guacamole that needed to be eaten…Beef and Bean Burritos!! We had all the ingredients and it seemed like it would be a very easy recipe.

Except for the cilantro…I didn’t have that…
So her recipe called for certain types of ingredients…but again I used the kinds I have.

Her enchilada sauce is medium…whereas mine is mild, so I added a can of diced green chilies that are medium. It works! 🥸 And the recipe called for refried beans…I’m not a big fan, but the hubby is; so I improvised by including black beans.

COMBINE THE SPICES!! ….that’s it??? 😂
While I’m waiting for the meet to defrost I diced the onion…

The recipe called for a whole medium onion…I had half a large onion in the fridge….I called it good. 😎

Oh…I don’t know if everyone knows this and I was just clueless…but this is how you use the can opener…🤯 I saw this a long time ago and my life was changed.
The entire stove is being used!!

I love it when the entire stove is in use!! It makes it seem like I’m doing a billion things at once! 😎 I just wish it wouldn’t mean more dishes…

I ummm…decided to pour the entire can of diced chilies…hopefully it is not too spicy for the hubby…
Elizabeth needed some applesauce…which she preceded to eat with her fingers…😜
Cooking…cooking…cooking…

At this point I have turned on the heat for the beans. It shouldn’t be too long now…

Wow!

So between these two pictures it was potty time for Elizabeth, so I hired the hubby to stir and add the enchilada sauce. He will be rehired in the future. 😎

You add cheese to the beans as they cook. So pretty much you are eating cheese with your meat.
Yum!

Look, they are so little and cute!! 😍 I was eating celery as I was cooking. I got hungry and decided to eat something healthy while I waited.

So delicious!!

It doesn’t look pretty but it was so yummy!!! It reminded me of a Paco’s burrito.

The rating shall begin…

Look Like Picture: 9! Hers just looked super pretty with the cilantro…but it was close!!

Taste: The hubby gives it a 9. He said I added too much enchilada sauce to the top, and that it made it a little soggy as he got to the end…but still he said it was yummy!! Elizabeth kind of cheated…she had a bean & cheese burrito…she liked that. Especially as she used it as a vessel to get the sour cream to her mouth.

Easiness: 10! Again like the Tortilla Soup or Sloppy Joe’s recipes it was super easy. Just slowly add and then finish it off with melting cheese via a microwave…

I might tweak this recipe the next time…but we shall see when that is, because…

Lots of leftovers!!

We will be eating this for a while…

1 1/2 burrito was almost too much for me…We might be eating this for Easter…?? We will see 🧐

Enjoy your Friday!! ❤️
