Refried Beans and Guacamole

Refried Beans and Guacamole

This was our dinner the other night.  A little different.  And considering I made the chips from scratch it didn’t really take any less time than a more traditional dinner, but it was still really good.  Plus you could use store bought chips if you really wanted too.  I actually had the refried beans frozen from making them another time and they were just as good defrosted and warmed up a little.  I know a lot of people think refried beans are bad for you but check out the recipe.  It’s just basically beans.  Nothing bad for you in there, and if you like garlic and cumin, you’ll love them.  Plus if you have a crockpot you just throw them in and forget about them all day.  As for the guacamole, Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga made her Cheaters Guacamole earlier in the week and we had avocados that needed using so that’s where the inspiration for this meal came from Refried Beans and Guacamole

And the chips I made from homemade corn tortillas using masa harina, water and salt, or you could use store bought corn tortillas if you like.  Just lightly brush each tortilla with a flavorless oil and sprinkle with sea salt.  Then cut into quarters or sixths and lay out on a baking sheet in one layer and bake in a 350 degree oven till just barely golden.  Cool before serving.
