Mondo Barrentine Bean and Cheese Burrito 

Mondo Barrentine Bean and Cheese Burritos

What you will need

1 can or 1 cup of cooked pinto beans

1 can or 1 cup of cooked black beans

An onion

1 cup grated cheese


~1/2 cup diced tomatoes

~1 tsp cumin

Tbs fresh diced garlic

A dash of cayenne pepper

A dash of Tapatio or other hot sauce if desired

A spoon a salsa

Sour cream

Start by bringing beans to boil in a pot with a little bit of water (~1/2 cup), diced onions, fresh garlic and spices (add other southern spices if desired now).

Once onions and garlic are cooked begin mashing beans. Add in tomatoes, sauce and cream at this point

Salt and pepper to taste.

Mash into a paste and cook on low for anywhere between 5 minutes and 24 hours. The longer you cook refried beans the better they taste. These are vegetarian style. Some people add pig fat.

The next stage of making homemade burritos is to make the burrito. So take your tortilla and put a scoop of beans and a handfull of cheese. Add more sauce and cream if desired. Fold burrito.

In a large frypan heat olive oil (or corn or whatever) over medium heat. Cook burrito in pan for a couple minutes until golden brown, flip, cook for a couple minutes and you are done!

What’s cooking

Chicken Dinner Dominique Baked Chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

What you will need::

1 Organic Chicken

Olive Oil

A Lemon

An Onion

Fresh Garlic

2-3 cups of chopped veggies I use carrots, squash, and zucchini
Chicken Seasoning: I use a mixture and it’s a little different each time a pinch of this and a pinch of that. Something along the lines of::

1 tbs salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

A pinch of cayenne pepper

A pinch of basil

Or more…probably more because I like things really spicy. If it smells kinda like baked chicken seasoning then you have a good mixture. You may also just buy premixed poultry seasoning and use 1-4 tbs depending on tastes
Step 1 preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2 cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil.

Step 3 rinse off your chicken with water and pat dry.

Step 4 rub seasoning all over your chicken, don’t forget inside the chicken! I start on the back, then do the inside, then I rub some up under the skin on the breast and also sprinkle on top. Often I will crack some extra fresh black pepper and garlic onto the top. You could also add Parmesan cheese if you wanted to.

Step five place veggies around chicken

Step six drizzle with olive oil

Step seven slice lemons in half. Squeeze juice onto chicken then shove lemons into chicken cavity.

Step 8 quarter onion and fill remaining space in cavity, place onion on chicken.

Step 9 add fresh garlic

Step 10 cover in foil

Chicken just before cooking.

Bake in the oven until done. ~3 hours

Chicken fresh out of the oven!
