My plans with Bud fell through tonight, so instead of making soft shell tacos, I decided to use some ingredients I had left in my kitchen to make something for supper that I would eat, but Bud probably wouldn't touch.
I had pita bread left over from some Chicken Caesar Wraps we made earlier in the week, and I really wanted some pita tonight! So, I made a quick Mexican dip/salsa from what I had in house: Defrosted corn, a can of black beans (rinsed), chopped tomatoes, diced green onions, and diced avocados. I tossed in some chopped cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and chili powder along with a splosh of vegetable oil. Add salt and pepper to taste, then mix. I didn't measure anything; this is a huge problem with me. I just thought it looked good and it made a huge bowl of stuff! I also had jicama but was way too lazy to peel and dice it. It would make a good addition to the dip.
Next, I heated a pan, buttered my pita, and warmed it up. After flipping the pita, I added cheese to the pita, then dumped some of the dip/salsa on top of it and let it sit on the stove for awhile until I decided it was warmed through enough to eat. Slide in onto a plate, and devour! Kinda like a Mexican Pizza thingy.
So now I have enough to eat for a week and only a few pitas left. Luckily, I do have plenty of tortilla chips! It would probably be good on top of some scrambled eggs in the morning. Is that too gross?!
Now I need something sweet... I heard about lemonade cookies today at the gym (how appropriate) and I decided that they were something I had to try. After Googling a recipe, I am now ready to tackle some cookies. I'll let you know how they turn out.
