Sour Cream & Queso Fresco over Black Beans – $.73

Remember that cucumber jicama slaw we made? Well you’ll need that for this quick meal. It tastes awesome on just about anything you’d put salsa on, like tacos or nachos- it’s fresh, crunchy and spicy.

Warm up some black beans using whatever warming method you prefer. I just pop mine right from the can into a bowl into the microwave. Spoon  the beans out on the plate. Then a wee little dollop of sour cream.

Then with the slaw.

I topped the plate with queso fresco, a mild crumbly cheese you can get at just about any grocery store and fresh avocado. Feel free to go crazy with this meal though; add rice, meat, and any veggies you want! Doesn’t look all that fancy, but it suuuuure was good.

  1. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

  2. The avocado looks like it pulls everything together. It's nice to see how you use your leftovers! Once I had a lot of leftover slaw with cilantro and green onions (no mayo), which I sauteed and mixed with noodles for a veggie lo mein. That was good and felt resourceful 🙂
