Pintos & Cheese (a’la Taco Bell)

“When you are having to eat soft foods for an extended period of time, getting your wisdom teeth out for example, you find that most of the soft foods are sweet … applesauce, smoothies, milkshakes, pudding, etc. There is chicken broth, but it isn’t filling. You get desperate for something substantial and savory. So I would stop by Taco Bell and get some pintos & cheese. But have you seen what they charge for that little bit these days? Forget that! Make your own using the copycat red sauce recipe.” – April Ferre
