If you have some leftover salsa, here’s an idea for what to do with it. Pour it over a couple of boneless chicken breasts and roast at about 400 degrees until done. For a richer sauce, combine the salsa with ¼ cup or so heavy cream. Easy, quick and delicious! Roast another vegetable in the same oven with the chicken for a complete meal (I served roasted asparagus, which my 2-year-old loved).

I am still trying to use up leftover bits of various things, and what better way to do that than to make burritos? With the burritos I made last night, I killed a half bag of new potatoes, a half can of beans, half an avocado, a quarter block of cheese and a few lonely romaine leaves. And they were quite tasty.
There’s really nothing to making burritos. Usually, I heat up the filling (steamed potatoes and canned beans, in this case) with some spicy seasonings. I roll the filling up in tortillas with some cheese and salsa. I bought prepared salsa because — let’s face it — making salsa in the dead of winter is a losing prospect. Instead of going for the gourmet brand, I bought the cheaper Herdez salsa (medium) and thought it was quite tasty. For a snack, I’ll probably bake some tortilla chips and eat the rest of it.
Roll up the burritos, sprinkle them with more cheese and salsa, and heat at 350 degrees until melty. Garnish with any uncooked things. I had shredded lettuce and diced avocado. Tasty, healthy and totally vegetarian. No recipe required.
