Black bean, pepper, onion and chicken tortillas

For those who might be into this type of thing, here is a recipe I like a lot. I made it last night for the first time in ages, and am now looking forward to having it "back in rotation". Before my husband and I had kids, we went through a phase where we ate this regularly. Very healthy - lots of protein, and of course lots of veggies. Very colorful, and they say that's a good thing :-)

Bell Peppers
Jalepeno Black Beans
Cooked chicken breast, cubed (optional)
Cheese (optional)

Last night, I forgot it the chicken. It's just been so long, I spaced it out - and honestly it still turned out great so I didn't even realize it was missing until my husband mentioned it - after I had finished eating! So it's up to you - chicken, no chicken, either way. If you want it, you can start out with it in the pan or add it in at any point as long as it was already cooked.

Chop us some peppers and onion in whatever combination you want. You could just do all red pepper and onion, or do green and red pepper and leave out the onion...whatever suits you. Last night I used green, red, and orange bell peppers and white onion.

 Add the Jalepeno Black Beans. I am not sure what is out there for options, but this brand ROCKS:

Kuner's Southwestern Jalepeno black beans with lime juice

Then just heat that all up together. This is also an easy recipe to make extras of and have leftovers.

Put in tortilla. Sprinkle with a little cheese if you want. Roll up and enjoy!
