In other words, when you are superbusy. And annoyed because lots of students handed in work without stapling the pages or without putting their section numbers on it.
So here is my 15 minute meal. The one thing you have to do in advance is have some cooked beans; otherwise, use canned. No recipe necessary. At least, I've never used one. Looks ugly, tastes great.
Chilaquiles for Tex-Mex Lovers Only
Rotel tomatoes or salsa
Corn chips (or corn tortillas toasted in the oven)
Beans spiced with whatever (we use a Cajun blend with black or pintos)
Grated cheese (cheddar, muenster,jack, whatever)
Do this as many times as you have room for and then top with sour cream. The original recipe called for baking, but I've discovered that you can heat in the microwave.
The original of this recipe was in the Greens Cookbook. It called for a spicy tomato sauce, spiced beans, frying corn tortillas, and a bunch of other stuff. I think the sauce was thickened with nuts. I was telling a friend that I wanted to make it, but that the recipe was too time-consuming. He said, "It's a convenience food. Use chips."
I never looked back.
I guess I have to return to my drudgery. Bon appetit.
