It's been a while since I've contributed to the fancy beans series. And to tell you the truth, I've missed it. There isn't a cheaper, quicker meal around. I guess there could be. But this is it for me.
The husband made an experimental sauce with dried chiles, and instead of tomato sauce, he added tomato paste. It was pretty concentrated. We used it for tacos the previous night, and had tons left over. I decided to add it to my can of chili beans. And it was delicious. I basically used a lot of toppings left over from taco night to dress up my beans, onions and cilantro, sour cream and crumbly cotija cheese.
I warmed up tortillas and had myself a comforting, humble meal in minutes. Then I felt really full.
