Black Bean Burritos with Avocado


I originally got this recipe from Cooking Light magazine, so it's pretty darn healthy, but it all depends on what you put on your burrito.

Ingredients:
1 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. water
2 tsp. cumin
2, 15 oz. cans black beans, drained of excess liquid
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. diced avocado
1 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice
flour tortillas
burrito fixings of your choice
(We like cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa and lettuce)

Directions:
Combine avocado with citrus juice to coat. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute about 1 min. Stir in water, cumin and beans. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 3 min. or until beans just begin to burst. (It will be paste-like - sort of like refried beans, but better for you!) Taste and add salt and/or pepper to your taste. Assemble burritos as desired.

Note: This is also fantastic with chicken, but makes a great vegetarian dish on its own.
