I Don't Know What I Made, But It Was Delicious

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.


  1. Sounds good, even on top of scrambled eggs! Maybe you could mix it with some rice or pasta for lunch? And top with crushed tortilla chips?

  2. I had it for lunch with some tortilla chips--very filling and yummy!
