Bean Salad Wraps

Another great recipe for summer
from: Better Homes and Garden Cook Book

4 8inch flour or wheat tortillas
1 15oz can black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 C chopped green sweet pepper (I usually use just one green pepper)
2 Tbs snipped fresh cilantro
1/3 C light mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
1 Tbs lime juice
Leaf lettuce

In a medium bowl mash black beans slightly, add sweet pepper and cilantro. Stir in light mayo and lime juice. Heat tortillas (since this is such a light meal you don't have to feel bad if you lightly fry them with olive oil, or at least I don't--- or you can just warm them)

Spread mixture evenly over tortillas top with leaf lettuce (I never use lettuce due to an aversion developed during pregnancy with Bentley, but Blaine does).

Very good, easy, light and fast!
