vegetarian mexican tortillas

This is another fast and easy recipe you can costumize according to the food you have on hand! Sour cream, avocado, black beans, salsa, red onion, yellow bell peppers and shredded mozarella served on a whole-wheat tortilla make a nutritious and satiating meal!

It seems that black bean is my favorite bean... I'm always using black beans!!! I like them because they are smaller and less starchy. Moreover, they are ranked #1 in the legume category for their antioxidant content! For you information, I think red kidney beans are second. Feel free to use any bean that please your own taste buds because legumes are so good for your health anyway! Low in fat, full of fibers and packed with proteins, beans are definitely the perfect substitute for meat.
