      A wonderfully easy and quick recipe. Ideal for a week night meal when time is short and energy levels are low. Tasty and delicious and I will definitely be making it again. I also put the avocado into the middle of the tortillas so it was warmed up as well.

      I made this last night and am in love!! Instead of putting the avocado on top, I mashed it into the beans (along with the lime juice). I smeared light sour cream on top and served with Black Bean Southwestern salsa and tortilla chips. Num, Num.
