What's for Dinner Wednesday

I love looking through cookbooks to get ideas for new recipes, but when I'm in a hurry and need a dinner or dessert idea quick, I find myself Googling recipes.  I've found some of the best recipes online which is one of the many reasons I decided to start blogging about food.  I'm really enjoying reading other food blogs and trying some of their recipes. 

We had a delicious dinner the other night!  I got the recipe from one of my favorite food blogs!  We had Potato and Poblano Pepper Tacos with refried beans.  We had plenty of refried beans left over so Luke decided to make another meal out of them.  This is Luke's recipe but I was a good wife and proof-read his recipe so this is the corrected version!  However, there wasn't much I could do with the photo he took. ;)

This recipe makes 8 servings.

Quick bean roll up:
8 Flour tortillas
2 14oz. cans of refried beans
1 10oz can rotel tomatoes or favorite salsa (Luke likes to use salsa to change the flavor)
1 1/2 cup of Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack Cheese 

Prepare your beans first:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Stir the refried beans and the rotel tomatoes (or salsa) together and pour into a greased 8x8 pan.  Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle 1 cup of cheese over the top of the beans.  Then put back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

If you don't want to take the time to bake the refried beans, you can just mix the refried beans and rotel tomatoes (or salsa) in a microwave safe bowl and warm the beam mixture in the microwave on high for a few minutes until heated through.

2nd step:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place flour tortillas on a flat surface and spoon the refried bean mixture onto each tortilla.  Sprinkle remaining cheese over the bean mixture and roll up each tortilla.  Place the tortillas on to a greased cookie sheet, flip the tortillas over every few minutes and bake until brown (about 5 - 8 minutes).

Top with some of your favorite salsa or enchilada sauce and more cheese, if desired.  If your using leftover refried beans like we did or if you decide to skip the baking step, this recipe should not take more than 15 minutes.
