burritos/generic mexican goodness

Photobucket

Mexican, so full of freshness! Salty, hot, bitter, sour, smokey, TASTY.

Fry up a torilla in a pan until it goes a bit brown and puffy, turn over and spread some cheezly over the top and let it melt yum yum! Then:

Beans


As you cant get black beans in a can here (wtf) I soak a cup of them overnight, rinse and then cook until tender. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Black beans are SO good for you! If you cant get black beans I cook up some kidney beans in a can of diced tomatos and splash in some tabasco/lime juice/chipotle/liquid smoke/whatever.

then

Some cooked brown rice (I dont, but its traditional)

then:

guacamole

2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup of diced tomato
1/4 cup of diced spanish onion
Juice of one lime
Salt

Mash the avacado and stir in the other ingrediants. Add salt to taste.

then:

pico de gallo (or salsa whatever)

10 roma tomatoes (or whatever kind you like), I gut them then dice
2 cloves of garlic, slice/crushed/diced/whatever
Handful of fresh corriander (I just roll up and snip with a pair of scissors)
A splash of tabasco or chipotle
1/4 cup of spanish onion, diced
Squeeze of lime juice
Salt and pepper

Toss all the ingredients in a bowl, season to taste.

Top with tofu sour cream, serve with tabasco, chiptole and a wedge of lime.

  1. Hey that looks great, I thought it was a pic from Trippy Taco!

    And yes you can get black beans in a can here. I've seen them at Passion Foods in South Melbourne and a different brand at Organic Wholefoods on Smith St. Don't give up hope!

  3. you can also get black beans at the organic shop on lygon st (at the north end) in east brunswick.
    i started cooking up large batches of black beans and freezing half of them (and usually making refried beans with the other half).
    i can't get enough mexican food: burritos or quesadillas for lunch most days (and occasionally breakfast)
