Black bean burrito bake (recipe in the comments from November 5)
Avocado and tomato salad
Vanilla ice cream
There's something about this dish. It's one of the easiest things we make and, yet, it's just incredible. It's flavorful, unusual, and comforting. How often does that happen??? Besides it gives us a chance to have an avocado salad - an experience we relish. T has started to like avocados more and so it's now universally exciting (for a long time he didn't like plain avocados, but loved guacamole - who knows what drives his tastes???). The countdown to the move has gotten very low (10 days!) so we're looking for easy and yummy. This was perfect. We spread the salsa more evenly over the burritos and thought the result was especially moist and good.
Difficulty: Super easy
Chopping: Chipotle chili, grating cheese, avocado, tomato
Time: 15 minutes to prep, 20 minutes to bake
Make ahead: It best to make this fresh.
J: "More decadent than it should be."
M: "Spreading the salsa was the right thing to do. Very good tonight."
