Pinto Bean Tacos

These tacos are so tasty, and good for you too. They are simple and quick to throw together for dinner or lunch, and they make a great "Meatless Monday" option. 

  • 1/2 cup canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chile powder
  • 2 whole-grain tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 avocado, chopped
  In a microwave-safe bowl, warm beans, lime juice, cumin and chile powder. Put bean mixture into tortillas and top with lettuce, tomatoes and avocado.

I'm not a huge fan of avocado, so I typically replace it with onion, bell pepper slices, and mushrooms that have been sauteed in olive oil.
