Breaded Cod Burritos

This Breaded Cod Burrito is a total food fix. I was actually craving a Mexican restaurant burrito, complete with gooey refried beans and cheese.

But, there were a few things that kept me from my Mexican burrito. I was working from my home office, and there was no time to run out for lunch. So, I did what any hungry person at home does… open my refrigerator and [sigh] stare at the contents, hoping something delicious will magically appear. And, it did.

After I noticed the leftover breaded cod my husband had made the night before, I grabbed a whole wheat tortilla, some sweet bell peppers and an avocado. A leftover fish burrito and a mixed greens salad later, I was happily chomping away. Sure, it wasn’t the gooey refried bean and cheesy burrito I had in mind, but it was so much better, fresher and more nutritious. Plus, it was such a tasty way to sneak more fish and veggies into my day.
