Trusty Burritos

As much as I love to explore new recipes and try out new foods, I also enjoy choosing from a trusted repertoire of meals for dinner. At the end of the day, I'm usually looking for a meal that is fast and easy to prepare, filling, and tasty. One dinner that I find myself putting together again and again at day's end is burritos. Because they're so simple, and since my husband and I have fairly different tastes, I make two kinds.

For the Best Husband Ever I fill two big flour tortillas with refried beans, sliced olives, and mozzarella cheese. For myself, I fill three to four corn tortillas with black beans, mango peach salsa, and fat-free cheddar. After baking them at about 385 degrees Fahrenheit until the cheese is melted, I then garnish just my burritos with fat-free quark and guacamole if it's on hand. For the dinner pictured here I also had a little fat-free pistachio pudding in addition to a salad and my calcium supplement. Quick, easy, filling, and delicious. I especially love the protein punch that these puppies pack.
