White beans mashed with ripe avocado and blended with sharp Cheddar and onion makes an incredibly rich filling for this wrap. The tangy, spicy slaw adds crunch while the distinct flavors of cilantro and chile sauce are a healthy way to add flavor.
Serve with tortilla chips and salsa or guacamole for an indulgent, satisfying yet nutritious dinner. Make extras for a delicious and portable lunch! (From Eating Well)
