Sometimes when it comes to dinner, I either feel like I have to do something new, original and amazing or just give up entirely. This recipe is a happy medium between the two because although it's not at all new or original, it's still amazing and requires only a little more effort than nothing. We use this bean filling for burritos, nachos, taquitos, tostadas, and anything else that sounds good. It makes for a quick dinner we all love!
