Black bean tortilla


Today I felt like having tortillas so I opened a can of black beans, drained them, rinsed them in purified water, smashed them with a fork, added ground cumin and powdered garlic and hot sauce...and then spread them out on a soft corn tortilla, topped it with a little leftover jasmine rice...zapped it in the micro. for a minute and then added olives and lettuce and a few crunchy organic corn chips on the side to make for a tasty lunch.

I am doing very well avoiding sugar these days after my candy confession and I am back to not thinking about it or craving it...yahoo!

My granddaughter is a wonderful pal...she helped me send out query letters to agents today so I guess it's official...I have an assistant! She's a sweetheart and a great writer. Check out her blog at my fave links..."Casey's blog."

Congratulations on making it through the sugar craze. I am working on the same issue. Once I let it into my system, it thinks it is in control again. Stinkin' sugar!
How lucky to have your own assistant. She sounds wonderful!

I make black bean nachos too. I put some black olives and some steamed shrimp on mine, and yum! Yours look good, too.
