  • 15 oz can black beans
  • 1/4 of a red onion (diced)
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, any color
  • 1/2 of a zucchini (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (ribs & seeds removed) (diced)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • fresh spinach leaves
  • cilantro leaves
  • 6 large tortillas (use gluten free, if desired)
  • 1 recipe Creamy Cumin Ranch Dressing
  1. Make the Creamy Cumin Ranch Dressing and set aside. 

  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the black beans, red onion, sweet bell pepper, zucchini, jalapeño, salt, smoked paprika, cumin, and lime juice. Mix well.

  3. Lay a tortilla flat on your work surface. Spread 1-2 tbsp of Creamy Cumin Ranch Dressing all over the tortilla. Add a few fresh spinach leaves, then 1/2 cup of the bean mixture, followed by a few cilantro leaves. Roll up the tortilla tightly. Cut into bite size pieces. Serve right away or place in the fridge until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

~You can make the Creamy Cumin Ranch Dressing ahead of time and keep in the fridge for several days until needed.

~This will server about 12-15 people as an appetizer. You can also make these as a wrap for lunch or dinner. Simply cut the rolled tortilla in half instead of bite size pieces. Will serve 4-6.
