Happy New Year!

It's official: 2011 has arrived, and along with it comes a sense of renewal. Why else would we make resolutions? I don't anticipate difficulty in my resolution to eat less meat. There's an abundance of excellent vegetarian recipes to choose from (hello, risotto with butternut squash, leeks, and basil from December 2010's Bon Appetit!)--it's just a matter of getting organized.

S. is coming over for dinner tonight and we're going to make vegetarian burritos. We made them a few weeks ago, and they were delicious. Here's what you need, but of course you can make your own substitutions:
  • 1 Pkg whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 Can black beans
  • 1/2 Green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 Medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup pepper jack cheese, grated
  • 1 Medium tomato, diced
  • 1/4 Head iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 Tbs cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • Sour cream to taste
  • Guacamole to taste
  • Hot sauce to taste
Heat the black beans in a pot on the stove. Sautee the bell pepper and onion in olive oil, until tender. Add drained black beans, bell pepper, and onion to prepared ingredients (vegetables and cheese), and then wrap in flour tortilla. Enjoy!

Here's a photo from when we prepared the dish a few weeks ago:
