I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Café Rio Black Beans 

If you want extra on the side (along with filling burritos), double the recipe.

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ tsp ground cumin

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 1/3 c tomato juice

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped 

In a nonstick skillet, cook garlic and cumin in olive oil over medium heat until you can smell it. Add beans, tomato juice, and salt. Continually stir until heated through. Just before serving stir in the cilantro.
