This is starting to become a habit but my latest recipe blog is vegetarian once again. I promise that the next one will have lots of bacon…and cheese.

This one was super easy and delish. I picked this recipe up from one of my current favorite foodie blogs Broke and Healthy.

This is jicama cucumber slaw over black beans with avocado, sour cream and queso fresco.  Phil and I gorged ourselves on this last night and didn’t have to feel gross about it after!


black beans ( I used canned out of laziness), sour cream, 1 avocado, queso fresco, jicama, 1 cucumber, 1 jalapeno, 2 cloves garlic, salt, vinegar or lime juice (I used vinegar because that is what I had), cumin, some sort of sweetener like agave or honey


To make jicama slaw, grate equal parts of the jicama and cucumber into a bowl. Add half of a minced jalapeno (more or less to taste, I did less as I am a wuss), then add the 2 cloves of minced garlic, the salt, splash of vinegar, cumin and sweetener and play with the flavors a little to get it how you like. I added quite a bit of vinegar and a little extra salt and that suited my taste buds quite well. Hubby gobbled it down! Heat up your black beans and put a heaping spoonful of sour cream and as much avocado as you like on top, crumble a little queso fresco over everything and top everything with the slaw.

I highly recommend checking out her blog for yummy cheap meal options!!
