I had friends over today- specifically my sister S and my best friend A. When I asked what they wanted for dinner, A. thinks for a minute and goes, "Didn't you just buy some refried beans? And taco wraps?", all the while looking at me winningly. So I caved, and without much Tex-Mex (or even Mex, for that matter) in the kitchen, I improvised.
Canned refried beans (Ortega, surprisingly, was the only brand at my local grocery store without any hydrogenated fats*) and shredded cheddar cheese baked at 350 degrees F for fifteen minutes, with more cheese sprinkled on them during the last two minutes and dolloped with sour cream before serving. They remind me of the 42-cent burritos I survived on one summer, except I know what went into these ;).
*Some brands had hydrogenated lard! Hydrogenating lard is almost redundant... honestly, what's the point?
