Yield: 2 servings


1½ cups frozen bell peppers

1 cup no-salt canned black beans

⅓ cup + 2 teaspoons low-sodium salsa

½ avocado

2 tortillas (whole grain)

¼ teaspoon cumin

¼ teaspoon chili powder

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)

1 cup spinach

2 teaspoons hot sauce

Cashew Sour Cream


  1. In a skillet, heat a few splashes of water over medium-high. Sauté the frozen veggies until hot. Or, you may just heat all the ingredients in a microwave until hot.
  2. Drain and rinse no-salt canned black beans. Mix in a dash of spices, such as cumin and chili powder.
  3. Reduce heat to low-medium and add beans, salsa, a dash of nutritional yeast (optional). Stir for a couple of minutes until mixture is warm throughout.
  4. Slice the avocado lengthwise, all the way around the pit. Gently twist each side to open the avocado. Scoop out flesh and cut into slices.
  5. Warm tortilla (whole-grain or gluten-free) in microwave for 10-15 seconds or on your stovetop in a pan. Place avocado slices on tortilla followed by spinach, bean mixture and hot sauce. Roll up, top with cashew sour cream and salsa, and enjoy!
