Have you ever made a meal around a condiment? The other night when we made the sandwiches we had half an avocado left so I decided to try the Creamy Avocado Cashew Sauce from Vive le Vegan! Then I was trying to decide what to do with it so I figured I'd try Dreena's Chipotle Veggie-Bean Burritos, also from Vive. Never before have I used a recipe to make burritos but we had everything on hand for this one so there's a first time for everything. Actually we didn't have the chipotle hot sauce called for in the recipe but we did have some dried chipotles that I reconstituted in boiling water and finely minced. I put 2 of those suckers in there and that really kicked up the heat level. Usually when I make burritos I toss in whatever suits my fancy at the time and I never measure anything so I don't know if I'll use this recipe again but I'm sure I'll incorporate some of the ideas from it. And the avocado sauce was good but I think I prefer a simple guac; though the sauce will keep longer so that's a bonus.
