Supper from a Super Hero

So, I was once told that if I were a Super Hero I would be named Procrastinator X and I would flutter about with my sparkly cape (hopefully in a variety of colors with super boots to match) saying "I will get you... Tomorrow!"

As I work best under pressure (famous words of the eternal procrastinator) I found myself in a bit of a super hero moment last night. I replaced my wand with a spatula but I was putting off work like it was my business. Instead of at my computer I found myself in the kitchen cooking... something that was not on this Super Hero's agenda but sure turned out magical.

On the Magical Menu: Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

4 cubed sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 onion, chopped and cooked
1 red pepper, chopped and cooked
1 can black beans
1 cup fresh corn
1 tablespoon Cumin
1 tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Mix potatoes, beans, onion, pepper, corn and spices together. Fold into Spinach Tortillas.
Top with fresh salsa (I used the Trader Joes with Cilantro). Broil for 4 minutes. Cover with cheese (I used a Monterrey Mix). Broil for 2 more minutes. Serve with Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt.

Last week I made this for friends I accompanied the Enchiladas with an Arugula Salad with chopped mangos and a garlic lime dressing. And a lot of wine. SO GOOD!!!

I am a multi-tasking procrastinator so I also made Squash Soup, Wild Rice Salad and a big mess that I conveniently had to clean up. I then proceeded to make three friends mixed CDs w enclosed, detailed letters that I will place in the mail this morning. After all, who needs to start work right away... Of to save the world and the kitchen, one meeting and meal at a time.

xoxo- Procrastinator X
