Avocado-Lime Black Beans Burrito

Avocado-Lime Black Beans
2 servings

1 15-ounce can black beans
1/2 lime, juiced (i used lemon instead)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 small shallot, diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin (left it out on accident)Salt and freshly ground black pepper1 avocado, to serve


Drain the beans thoroughly. Toss with the lime juice, cilantro leaves, diced shallot, and ground cumin. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Peel and slice an avocado, and serve the beans at room temperature, with 1/2 avocado on top of each serving.

The beans will last for several days in the fridge. You can take a helping of beans in your lunchbox, along with sliced avocado that has been tightly wrapped to protect against browning.

Review: I served my as a burrito with a serving of beans and half an avocado and added a dollop of sour cream. My picky 4 year old loved this dish!
