Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
Yes, this is "weird" in that it is different from your typical bean burrito-- but I thought it was very good for an easy meal for 2 non-vegetarians trying to eat more vegetarian meals. I thought, "Really, 3 TBSP chile powder" (not a typo) & "TWO cups of water"?? Well, to solve the "bean soup" problem, and the "bland" sweet potato concerns, I cut the microwave-cooked sweet potatoes into cubes, & mixed it with the bean mix, creating the perfect blend of texture, taste, & water absorption for the burrito filling. I put the filling directly into the flour tortillas with the cheddar cheese, because I was on a hot houseboat, & did not want to turn on the oven. Because I had no potato masher or food processor to mash the kidney beans, it took a while longer to mash with a fork, but not impossible(think camping). I would gladly make this again, especially if the filling I froze, tastes as good as other reviewers proclaimed.

Sweet 'n' Hot Glazed Salmon
Somehow I missed the part about boiling all the ingredients! I just threw all the ingredients into a zip lock & marinated the salmon in it for a couple hours & grilled it. It has received rave reviews both times I have made it. Until this recipe, I always cooked salmon with only lemon pepper because I always thougt the lovely taste of salmon should not be covered up. I, too saved some marinade & used it the next night on lamb. I think it is good on any meat. All the different flavors are detectable on the finished product. I am making it again this weekend!

Grilled Peppers
This recipe couldn't be any easier! I used the smaller multi-color sweet peppers for a bite-size hors d'oeuvre. I was afraid fresh, un-grilled jalapeno would be too hot but 2 slivers the length of the pepper were perfect. They disappeared from the grill in seconds & I am making them again this weekend. You could vary this recipe in infinite ways.
