Avocado chicken parmigiana

Good, but needs more spice!
This tumblr has quickly turned into a food blog. Oh well.
Tried another interesting recipe tonight. Never thought of putting peaches on a quesadilla, bit this was pretty fantastic.
Discovered and made another new favorite recipe tonight! Basically, you make a pizza with a purée of avocado, cilantro, lime juice, and salt instead of tomato sauce. And, me being me, I added a jalapeño as well. And I also used pepper jack cheese instead of regular monterey jack. Love that spice!
John and I were both huge fans! Will definitely be making this again.
Seven Layer Tortilla Pie with a side of avocado and jalapeños. (See last post for a link to the recipe.)
I made another big batch of one of my favorites today: homemade refried beans in a slow cooker. (On a side note, why does my iPhone always want to autocorrect refried to be capitalized? Strange.)
This is the recipe that I use, without much adjustment. I usually just throw in a little extra jalapeño, since we like things hot.
When they’re done, I put them in the fridge for a while to harden a bit, and then freeze into meal-size portions with my vacuum sealer (if I put it in there right out of the slow cooker, it’s too liquidy for my sealer and gets a little messy).
Great for a variety of meals - tacos, nachos, even stuffed peppers! (Which I did one night when I was out of ground beef.)
Tried another delicious new recipe for dinner! I only used 2 chicken breasts, but the same amount of spices, and it turned out very hot. Just how we like it!
I also added some leftover corn from when we had it on-the-cob the other day, which was a great addition to the salsa! Oh, and we couldn’t help but add a little shredded cheddar cheese on top of the tacos. Creatures of habit. :)
This was a definite winner! Sweet and spicy.
