Beef and Bean Wraps

This recipe is both totally delicious and completely disgusting-looking when you combine it all together.  If you can get past the visual, the taste is awesome and, to top it off, it's healthy!  Yay!  (The BF and I try to eat healthy meals during the week, so we can make room for deep fried yummies on the weekend.)

First, I combine 3/4 of a pound of ground beef, one small yellow onion, white pepper, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a pan and brown it all up.  Once the beef is browned and the onions are translucent, I add one cup of fat free refried beans.

Looks gross, right?  I agree.  While that is heating through, I slice up avocado and combine it with 1/2 a cup of spicy, chunky salsa, which looks like this . . .

 . . . Until I mush it all together, with some garlic powder, at which point it looks like this . . .

Yuck again!  That does not look appetizing at all.  I then combine the two on a whole wheat tortilla, with a little bit of cheese (we used colby jack tonight, but I prefer pepper jack for extra spiciness), for the final product:

Roll it up and enjoy!  Once you taste it, you'll totally forget what it looks like - I promise!

Today I rocked my Sam Edelman "Irina" flats.  I love these shoes.

I am just now realizing that this is an unflattering angle for my already unfortunately hideous feet.  I promise a better shoe-photo-delivery method in the next post!
