SIDE NOTES:

~ We all love mexican night & this bean dish is my own, personal concoction.

~ I like using my small food processor to quickly chop up the garlic.

~ Make twice this amount to serve a family of 4 with a little extra.

~ Served here with SPROUTED-CORN-TORTILLA-CHIPS, rice and guac.

~ Can’t give you an exact recipe for the guacamole, as it’s one of those things that’s always just thrown together w/o measuring. In general, here’s what you need – A couple of ripe avocados, a few squeezes of lime juice (I substitute lemon juice if needed), 1 or 2 minced or crushed garlic cloves, a handful of fresh cilantro, a few dashes of sea salt, and a dollop or 2 of your favorite salsa. Mash everything up together & enjoy.
