When life gives you burrito left overs, make quesadillas

One of our favorite dinners is veggie burritos. They are quick, easy, and light. Ours usually consist of sauteed onions and green bell peppers, (in a little bit of oil, worcestershire sauce, cumin, and lime and cilantro), refried black beans, cilantro/lime rice, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Strangely there is always just a little of everything left over. Just the perfect amount to make a quesadilla.

So I just stuff the last two tortillas with the left overs, shred a little more cheese and use our cast iron skillet to fry it up. It gets so yummy and flaky. Garnished with a little fresh guacamole, its the perfect lunch!

Guacamole recipe:
1 ripe avocado mashed
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
1 half a lime freshly squeezed
a pinch or two of salt
a little cilantro.
mix it all together for a delicious treat.

The Trick Is Being Gentle

Since I haven't posted in a while...again, I thought I would just quickly share a new favorite recipe. I know I've posted about biscuits already, but that was before I actually found the perfect biscuit recipe. I can not rave enough about how deliciously airy and light and flakey and wonderful they are. I'm not sure it gets any better than this. I don't have pictures but I wanted to share anyway. Enjoy.
