Cajun French: goûtailler (goot-a-ee-ā) – snack
Having a pot of cooked Pinto Beans means thinking of creative ways to use the beans. We try to have some type of healthy snack in the afternoon so the mind went to work. We had pita bread, guacamole, goat cheese, tomatoes and green olives – now what to do with them. We thought about mini pizzas, yet they would be too hard to eat without utensils. Okay, same concept just cut the pita bread in quarters and single layer.
Mais C’est Bon!
- 1 cup pinto beans, with some liquid
- Hot sauce
- Cajun seasoning
- 1 Roma tomato
- 12 green olives
- Herb & garlic goat cheese
- 1 slice pita bread
Mash the pinto beans. (We use a bullet)
Season with hot sauce and Cajun seasoning to taste.
Chop tomatoes, set aside
Chop olives, set aside
Open pita bread to single layer.
Cut each piece in quarters.
For each quarter of pita bread:
Spread layer of goat cheese
Spread layer of guacamole
Spread layer of mashed pinto beans
Sprinkle tomatoes and olives on top
This is a great snack or could also serve as an appetizer.
