>>Homemade Salsa & Costa Vida Burritos

We have been craving that yummy Costa Vida that we seem to only be able to get in Utah (not really but we don’t have one close to us) and so we decided to make our own with a twist! Moving forward with some vegetarian meals of the week we tried a Costa Vida inspired meal that we made two nights in a row because it was just THAT GOOD! Try it!

Burritos

Ingredients
Uncooked flour tortillas (we think they taste better than the ones on the bread isle) *You can find these in the refrigerated section by the cheese.
Black Beans (you could use canned or cook them ahead of time but it takes a while so prepare accordingly)
*Lime Rice (see below)
*KT’s Salsa (see below)
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese


KT’s Salsa

Ingredients
1 Green Bell Pepper
3 Roma Tomatoes
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1/2 Onion
FreshParsley
S&P to taste
1 Pinch of Sugar
Directions
We mixed everything up in our chopper detachment on our Ninja blender, I didn’t even have to chop anything!  Just a few good pulses and it was salsa ready!

Lime Rice

Ingredients
1 Tbsp Butter
1/3 Onion Diced
1/4 Cup Celery Diced
1 Tbsp Lime Juice
2 Cups Chicken Broth (you could also just use water)
1 Cup Rice
1/3 Bunch Cilantro Chopped
Directions
Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil.  Add in rice, turn to low and cook till light and fluffy.  Stir in cilantro.
