Black Bean and Cheese Lettuce Wraps
Although this is recommended as an appetizer, I can easily make a meal of it! I love a variety of lettuce wraps because they are healthy and delicious. Other types of lettuce that can be used are: iceberg, romaine, red leaf, or escarole.
1 (15 ounce) can BUSH'S® Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup crumbled plain low fat feta or goat cheese
1/3 cup Fat Free Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup chopped chives or green onions
12 large leaves Boston lettuce*
Set BUSH'S BEST Black Beans and chives in separate shallow bowls. Combine rice, salad dressing and cheese in small bowl. Scoop into third shallow bowl. Set leaves on plate and allow guests to create own lettuce wraps. **
* Reduced fat wheat crackers may be substituted. Spoon bean mixture onto crackers just before serving.
** To serve pre-made, lay lettuce leaves flat on plate and spoon rice mixture, beans and chives on each.
