Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 corn tortillas per person
  • 1 can Bush’s Cocina Latina Refried Black Beans (any variety)
  • 1 can Enchilada sauce, medium heat
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 2-3 eggs per person
  • Shredded Mexican-style cheese

Directions:

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees, put tortillas on a cookie sheet and bake until they are completely crispy all the way through the tortilla (you could break them into corn chips)
  • While the tortillas are baking
    • Put refried black beans in a sauce pan and heat over low heat until warm
    • Portion-out enchilada sauce into 4 containers, freeze 3 for later use, heat one in either the microwave or in a sauce pan on low heat
    • Cut-up the avocado into small chunks
  • Fry the eggs to sunny-side up
  • Right before serving (otherwise the tortillas won’t be crunchy)
    • Place the tortillas on the place
    • Sprinkle cheese on the tortillas
    • Put about ½ of a spoonful of enchilada sauce on next
    • Put abut a spoonful of black beans on next
    • Put a couple of chunks of avocado on top
    • Place the hot egg on top of all of it
  • Serve immediately with the leftover black beans

In terms of how to eat them, some people are very polite and break off little pieces at once. We’re fans of picking up the whole thing and biting into it. Yep, the egg runs, but you can scoop up that yellowy goodness (or let it drip on your side of black beans) with a spoon later.

I was traveling for work and rushing to visit a dojo for a 2 hour karate workout, but I needed to eat. So, I stopped at a Corner Bakery to get a light meal in.

Scanning their menu, my best light option was their Harvest Salad. The only problem? This salad is actually 780 calories. Way too much. I needed something between 400 and 500 calories.

In addition, there were some things on the salad that have a high Glycemic Index and my dietician has warned me against eating (mainly dried fruit and white bread).

So here’s how I fixed it:

  • I ordered the dressing on the side and used  very little of it.
  • I picked-out all of the cranberries (I forgot to ask them to leave those out)
  • The white bread went into the trash.
  • I left the protein (chicken) and the healthy fats (walnuts) to make sure I was still full after.

(and yes, I cleaned up after myself)

Bye bye calories and high glycemic index parts of my salad.
