10 Minutes 'Til Dinner

Alright, this is going to be a super quick post for a super quick, super healthy week night meal. It's so quick that it will probably take me longer to type up this blog post than it will take you to make this dish! It's South Beach Diet friendly and Gluten Free! This is less of a recipe and more of a meal idea.

Chipotle Black Bean Lettuce Wraps

You'll need the following:

  • Four black bean patties (I used frozen this time, if you want to prepare your own use my pinto bean burger recipe in my burger and fries post)
  • 1 head of butter leaf lettuce
  • 1avocado
  • 1 tomato
  • 2T chopped red onion
  • 4T chopped cilantro
  • juice of one lime
  • garlic salt
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Cheese (optional)
While the black bean patties are cooking in a large skillet, chop the avocado, tomato, onion and cilantro and mix together with garlic salt and lime juice. Clean the lettuce and gently remove each leaf and set on a platter. When the patties are cooked, break them up with a spatula like you would ground meat.

Top a leaf of lettuce with some of the black bean patty mixture, avocado salsa fresca and sour cream and cheese if desired.

That's it! ENJOY!
