Last week we took inventory of the pantry cabinet before I went grocery shopping. There sat the can of Trader Joe's Refried Beans. "Why do we have a can of refried beans?" asked my husband. I explained the Mexican BLT to him and he encouraged me to get the rest of the fixings. And today, beloved husband made Mexican BLTs for lunch.
"Do you want to come help?"
"No, I'd rather stay out of your way."
And I'm glad I did!
The sandwiches were not like Shorty's, but they were tasty. Although, I don't recommend using wheat bread or red bell pepper.
Edited to add: The taste of the wheat bread over-powered the rest of the ingredients. My husband said the same thing about the red bell pepper. When I ate my sandwich, the red pepper had fallen out, so I ate it as a side.
