I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Black bean lettuce wraps

Though these are not very beautiful to look at, they are so good, super easy and very low in fat and calories. 
2- 15 oz. cans black beans, drained
1 avocado, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 c. favorite salsa
2 T. lime juice
1 t. ground cumin
1/2 - 1 t. chipotle pepper seasoning (optional)
1 c. cilantro, finely chopped
8 large romaine lettuce leaves

Place beans over med heat.  Add remaining ingredients, excluding romaine and heat until heated through about 5 min.  Place 1/4 c. of filling in the center of each lettuce leave like a taco and serve.

Serves 4
