Recipe type: Appetizers & Snacks
Serves: 4 servings
  • ⅓ cup canned no-added-salt black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 avocados, halved
  • 4 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons jarred salsa
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lime, quartered
  1. Place the beans in a small bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash until they reach an almost smooth consistency.
  2. Make sure the pits are removed from the avocado halves. In the center of each avocado, layer 1 tablespoon of the beans, 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt, and 1 tablespoon of salsa and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of cheese. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the avocados. Serve each avocado half with 1 slice of lime to squeeze over the dish.
