We've been eating lots of beans and cheese this week! First meal involving two of my favorite ingredients:
"Tomato Tortilla Soup," from Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers, with quesadillas on the side. I had never made tortilla soup before, and I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe -- the ground/pureed tortilla chips gave the soup an incredibly creamy, silky texture, and the simple recipe was a snap to whip together on a busy day. The quesadillas were made with whole-wheat tortillas, homemade refried pinto beans, and shredded pepper jack, with jarred salsa and homemade guacamole for dipping.
Leftover beans and cheese were later incorporated into breakfast:
Huevos Rancheros! More protein, please! :) Yum.
