Black bean and queso blanco tamales (thank you Trader Joe's)
Spanish style rice
Steamed green beans, briefly sauteed and finished in salsa verde

Hot tea
We actually bought these tamales to have last week the night before M's mom arrived if we had a lot to do. Since we had our emergency Chinese take-out night, these got frozen and so we have a night of easy meal prep tonight. This is always appreciated on Fridays (see second post from today) when we make the grocery list and clean the kitchen before we make dinner. I love queso blanco (and queso fresco, that entire class of cheese, actually) and these sounded too good to pass up. They are also low in fat and pretty low in sodium - all good things in a prepared food. We both really liked them and would certainly have them again!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: None
Time: 25 minutes
Make ahead: I expect so.

J: "I've never had better vegetarian tamales."
M: "Tastes like home cooking!"
