"What I've got left in the cupboard" Burritos

I've had a can of re-fried beans, a can of corn and a can of sliced black olives sitting in my cupboard for a while, so I decided that it was time for some burritos to spice things up.

I sauteed some onion, added in some leftover rice from the fridge, and then the can of refried beans and half a can of corn and about a quarter of a can of olives. I fried it up and added a dash of hot sauce. It made the perfect vegetarian burrito filling! I even had cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh limes and sour cream that needed to be used up so I had all the fixings. I complimented it with some homemade guacamole too.

I love this recipe for guacamole:

1 large ripe avocado
1 clove garlic
1 tsp of fresh lime juice
1 tbsp of sour cream
2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 dash of salt to taste
cilantro for garnish (optional of course)

Mince or chop one clove of garlic. Chop lime in half and squeeze to make at least 1 tsp of lime juice. Mash the avocado until creamy, then add sour cream and lime juice and mix thoroughly. Blend in garlic, Worcestershire sauce and salt to taste. Throw a bit of cilantro on top and you're set. You can always add more lime juice too! (The great thing about the lime juice is that it prevents the avocado from going brown too!)

Don't forget to make some margaritas to drink along with your Mexican meal; it's always a good way to round out any dinner!
