Chipotle Black Bean Burgers and Baked Garlic Home Fries #SundaySupper

This week’s #SundaySupper is all about skinny dishes.  Not diet food, but normal food, made healthier.  It’s a chance to be a bit creative with traditional dishes and sneak in some added nutrition or share some of our favorite yummy and healthy meals.

We decided to take ourselves out on a limb and cook up these chipotle black bean burgers with some hearty and healthier baked garlic home fries.  Baking fries is so simple, and you get great flavor without the deep-fried guilt.
