Chili Burritos with Quick Almond and Cashew Cheese Sauce {Taco Bell style}

Back for my first post in nearly 2 years I figured I would share this delicious and quick burrito recipe. I love this recipe because it’s quick, tasty and relatively cheap. It makes a ton of chili that can be used later on baked potatoes, to make enchiladas, serve it with corn chips or cornbread .. it’s endless, this recipe can go a long way. The cheese sauce is nice and cheesy tasting and with a high powered blender you can have it done in minutes. Let’s get started ..

Mexican Style Breakfast Burrito

I used to not be a breakfast person at all. It was a sad time. Over the last year I’ve made it a point to try and eat at least a few bites of something between 8 and 9 am. Okay, sometimes 10 am. So, I bought a few frozen breakfast burritos to try out the idea of something spicy and savory for breakfast. I loved it and ended up buying a few more. Well, that got expensive quick. Naturally I decided I would get arrogant and make my own. This is what I came up with, and to me they not only taste great, but honestly.. I think they taste better.

Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

I think we all know by now that I love enchiladas. Every time I make them I do it a different way. This time I wanted to give the potato burrito a try, and it turned out delicious paired with my homemade salsa, my homemade cheese sauce, homemade enchilada sauce (all three recipes are inside this post) and some blue corn chips. This seriously makes a ton of food, so be prepared to not cook for a while after you make this, or be prepared to have a food baby because you can’t stop yourself from eating it all the first day.

Fast and Cheap Black and Kidney Bean Soup

It has been super cold today, so naturally I wanted something to warm us up after we went for our walk. This meal is super cheap, really easy, healthy and flavorful. I made two batches of it and switched some things around on the second go. Luckily, I have pictures of both so you can decide which one looks right for you to enjoy.
