ALSO STARRING: SKINNY Steak and Eggs Tostadas.

OKAY. So SINCE i’m still on a tostada obsession: I whipped something up for breakfast this weekend, that was SO GOOD on saturday, i had to make it again sunday, and i made it a little different and realized that i could do anything with this base, and that it tasted JUST like refried beans that i LOVEEEE to spread on the bottom of a tostada,(and a million other things) but could ALSO be used as a base for dips, without lots of added extra crap, and the only REAL carb are the beans, and there’s no oil or anything. ENDLESS possibilities for   ALL KIND OF AMAZING SHIT!!

Quick couple of pulses in the food processor: Onions, and red peppers.

NOTE: ON SATURDAY, i made this with Green peppers, and it was JUST as delicious. i kind of liked it better, was a little more peppery, as red peppers are a LITTLE bit sweeter. but still EQUALLY as delicious. And the color is nicer. I’m gonna try this with a million different things. I LOVE using peppers as a fake starch. I use them with onions to bulk up just about anything where i would put a potato in like, a fake hash or whatever. ITS GREAT.

THROW pulsed onions and peppers in a pan, press in garlic. (I AM OBSESSED with a garlic press. SO fast and easy, minced fresh garlic.)
Then throw black beans ( any beans are gonna be fantastic to do this with, esp. red, but i used what i had in the house!)
Just cook down for a few minutes, till the onions are translucent and the peppers have softened, and you take that raw harsh bite taste out of everything.

Throw sautéed mixture back into food processor. I ADDED (just cuz i was in the mood to experiment…): a serving of fat free cheddar, and a squirt of sriracha cream. (remember, i keep a squirt bottle of this made in my fridge. just a little fat free sour cream or greek yogurt, mixed with srirahca…a way to add a cream, or a little flavor with barely any cals)

BLEND. the lighting in that picture is odd, it looks like peanut butter lol- but it came out much darker: FINISHED PRODUCT OF SKINNY REFRIED BEANS :

Photo May 05, 12 07 52 PMREAL quick: steak for a few minutes on either side, The beauty of this, is you need very little, and then it makes soo much when you throw it in the food processor to shred!! Pulse it 3 or 4 times, it’ll up so nicely   this little amount was BARELY 4 ounces of meat, and made enough to OVERDO IT on 4 tostadas!!

shred Photo May 05, 12 19 41 PM diced tomatoes, i love to throw a little pink sea salt and cracked black pepper on them.

Just layer shredded steak over your spread of “skinny refried beans”, throw an egg on top, sprinkle diced tomatoes, and hit it with a little sriracha cream or sour cream, or anything you want really. Nothing is delicious too.
OKAY. i’m done with the tostada posts for now, i promise. The star of this post was REALLY the nonrefried, Refried Beans.

AND I LEAVE YOU WITH:

ABSURD photo of where we have to put my dog, Dinno, while we’re cooking (this is from friday night’s Salmon Tartare…. recipe to come.)
He HAS to be right in the sightline of everything thats going on in the kitchen, or else he’s in and out, underfoot, wandering around, trying to inhale anything that falls off the counter, which is not only annoying, but can make him sick. EX: he’s constantly snarfs up onions, and then spits them out all over the floor, where ever he takes them to hide them, when realizes they’re gross and he doesn’t want to eat them.

My ridiculous husband started this nonsense, which at first made me mad, but now makes me laugh. He calls  the dog RATATOUILLE now, Like the mouse in the movie, who wanted to be a chef, but noone would let him. Says its Dinno’s secret dream. I say he’s just a scavenge.

RIDICULOUS.
