Black bean burrito bake (recipe in the comments from November 5, 2007)
Avocado and tomato salad with lemon

Hot cocoa
This is a favorite and looking over the blog we typically have this recipe about twice a year. It's so easy and the result is creamy, satisfying goodness without being especially bad for you. I love the heat of the chipotle chili, but this is a pretty big turn off for T at this point. I'll probably make him something else tomorrow. That said, M and I love this and everyone we have served it to (minus T) has been very appreciative. The recipe doubles easily, with no additional baking time. We like it this way, so the burritos get a bit crisp, but you can use more salsa on top for a moister end product. This salad is one of our favorite sides with all things Mexican. I love avocados and the tart tomatoes and lemon are perfect counters. The salad is a T favorite, so we will save some of that for him :)

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Super easy
Chopping: Chipotle chili, tomatoes, avocado
Time: 15 minutes to prep, 20 minutes to bake
Make ahead: I like these best right out of the oven, but I have never turned one down for lunch.

J: "The easiest burrito ever."
M: "Ridiculously easy."
