Black Bean and Avocado Wraps

Healthy black bean and avocado salsa wraps. These quick and flavorful black bean and avocado wraps are tasty, filling and make a great meatless lunch or dinner! They can also be made vegan too! Black Bean and Avocado Wraps You honestly can not go wrong with avocado wraps. I’ve made a few avocado wraps over the past few years and these black bean and avocado wraps are up there with the rest. The black beans are cooked with onion, bell pepper, garlic and taco seasoning for 5 minutes. To go with the black beans is a zesty avocado and tomato salsa that is prepared by simply combining chopped avocado, tomato, cilantro, and salt & pepper.

To assemble, simply top a fresh tortilla with the black bean mixture, a few tablespoons of the zesty + creamy avocado mixture and about a teaspoon of sour cream or yogurt (you can also use mayo or your favorite sauce). Surprisingly, these wraps store well in the fridge. The lime keeps the avocado from browning and if you don’t cut the wraps and cover each wrap with plastic wrap or place in a zip seal bag, the avocado should remain fresh and green. Black Bean and Avocado Wraps

    i did change things up a bit. I used seasoned black beans and did not bother heating THEM at all. Sliced, fresh green bell pepper (UNCOOKED), and GREEN onions. Sprinkled a little Mexene chili powder, salt n pepper. drizzled it with fresh lime. Then topped with a spicy guacamole that already HAD tomatoes and onion, the cilantro, sour cream and wrapped it up in a whole wheat honey oat tortilla. Served it with a side of pineapple mango fruit mix in coconut water. It was delicious. Thanks for the inspiration.

    So its late at night. But I was hungry. Looked up black bean and avocado wraps. Found this recipe, however did not have everything. So I simply took black beans and added some taco sauce. Heated them up. Took a warmed wrap. Spread some avocado on it. Added the black beans, some shredded cheese and some salsa. So good! Even the kids wanted to eat it all.

      I haven’t tried freezing them and I don’t know how the avocado would hold up in the freezer but if you are going to freeze them I suggest coating the avocado in lemon or lime juice.
