Me: I want to try this chicken and black bean dish.
Bf: Ok, what's in it?
Me: chicken, beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes and then you put cheese and sour cream on it and serve it in tortillas.
Bf: It sounds like a quesadilla.
Me: Yeah it's similar to a quesadilla.
Bf: It is a quesadilla.
Me:.....(thinking if I could argue the point) yeaaah, I'm not sure why I didn't think of it like that.
This dinner was so fast and easy, as per the requirements of this series, and it was delicious! Despite the fact that I didn't originally visualize the dish correctly, it was amazing. Both bf and I scarfed down the dinner and burned our tongues. I'm noticing that I do that a lot. Clearly I should work on not humping head first into my food. The only change I might make is I would include a squeeze of lime juice just before baking to include some freshness.
