  • 1 bell pepper, any color
  • ½ medium yellow onion

Rinse and drain black beans. Sauté ¼ chopped onion and crushed garlic in oil of choice until fragrant. Add black beans, cayenne, and chili powder, and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until tender. Add splash of water if beans get dry. Mash some of the beans for texture if preferred. Set aside.

Saute remaining onion and sliced bell pepper. While onions and pepper cook, mash your avocado and add sea salt, crushed red pepper flakes, and juice of lime. Layer the avocado, onions and peppers, and black beans in a tortilla. Add cheese if desired. Wrap and enjoy.
