Veggie burritoes

Made these last night with some CSA produce and cilantro from my back porch. Yummy!

Filling ingredients
4 medium yellow squash, chopped
1 large white onion, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed well
1 teaspoon cumin
salt to taste

1 cup long grain rice
zest from one lime

Filling instructions
1. Saute squash and onion until just soft over medium heat
2. Add tomato, cumin and salt and cook about 2 or 3 minutes
3. Add black beans and heat through

Rice instructions
1. Cook according to instructions on package
2. After cooking, stir in lime zest

Assemble burrito on flour tortilla with rice, veggies, and top with guacamole and grated cheese.

Easy Guacamole

So I haven't posted in like, what? 6 months? It's alright. I lost my blogging mojo, but I imagine I'll come back from time to time at the very least to post a recipe.

I love guacamole as a topper to all things, and B who "didn't like avacados" when I met him is now obsessed with guacamole. I know, right? What kind of Mexican is he?

Anyway, this is easy, fast, and healthy. I like my guac chunky, so no purree-ing, just mixing.

2 ripe Haas avacadoes, chopped
1 tomatoe, chopped
1/4th red onion, diced fine
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice from one lime
salt to taste

Mix and eat, silly

How to eat?
Chips, atop chicken or steak, in quesadillas or burritos
