Recipe or food tip to share: In a big tortilla, cover half of it with shredded Mexican cheese, add a layer of cooked black beans, some pico de gallo or chopped tomato and onion, and another layer of cheese. Fold it over and sautee it up in a skillet until the cheese melts on both sides. Eat it. It'll cure what ails ya.
