Cook Time

  • 4 (8-inch) whole wheat tortillas
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided use
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 (15-oz.) can black beans, drained, rinsed
  • ½ cup low-sodium organic vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 cups finely shredded leaf lettuce
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1½ tsp. fresh lime juice
  • ½ medium ripe avocado, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.

  2. Lightly coat both sides of tortillas with spray. Place tortillas in single layer on two large baking sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden. Set aside.

  5. Add beans; cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes, or until heated through.

  6. Add broth and cilantro; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Mash bean mixture with a potato masher into a chunky purée. Remove skillet from heat. Cover and set aside.

  7. Place lettuce and tomatoes in a medium bowl. Drizzle lime juice and remaining 2 tsp. oil over salad; toss gently to blend. Set aside.

  8. To serve, place a tortilla on each serving plate. Top evenly with beans, salad, and avocado.
