One of my favorite black bean recipes! This dish is really versatile because you can make it just as a salsa, or you can fill a whole wheat tortilla with it for a really delicious wrap! You can go vegetarian or carnivore with this recipe, too. Just add some chicken breast to your wrap for more protein. This is a very nutritious, fiber-filled meal that’s mild in flavor, but you can punch it up easily with some spicy sides like salsa.
2 limes, juiced
1 can black beans (15 oz)
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro (ore more, to taste)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
Optional ingredients as sides
whole wheat tortillas (Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted tortillas pictured)
greek yogurt (to spread inside tortilla before filling)
chicken breast (to go inside wrap with filling)
salsa (for added flavor – inside the wrap or for dipping)
Cut avocado into cubes. Add to a medium sized mixing bowl and squeeze limes into bowl. Lightly stir to coat avocados in lime juice to keep them from turning brown. Chop mangoes into cubes and add to avocado bowl. Add black beans and cilantro. Drizzle olive oil over contents of bowl and gently stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.Fill whole wheat tortillas with mixture and serve. Optionally, before filling tortillas, spread with greek yogurt, tomato salsa, and/or a layer of chicken breast strips.
