I whipped this up for lunch on a whim today because, well, I have a baby who’s obsessed with three things…

Cheese,

Beans,

and Avocado.

No, really. Look…

It’s my go to meal for him so I find myself with beans and avocado readily available. Not a bad situation to be in. :)

Today I whipped this up as a filling for a wrap but it could be used to top a salad, stuffed in a pita or even just eaten straight up. I love the combination of beans, avocado and cheese with a spicy twist. Spicy Chopped Kidney Bean SaladThe peppers and tomatoes bulked up the dish and added a nice sweet bite. I will totally make this again.

  • 1 Mini Babybel Light cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 oz (14g) cubed avocado
  • 5 Grape Tomatoes Halved

  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce

    My I-only-eat-meat husband loved this — ate two for dinner and took the leftovers for lunch. My vegan daughter loved this and I was happy that it was easy to make and provided much needed protein for her. (My only mod was that I used white kidney beans because the can of red I had was expired.)

    Thank you for a magnificent recipe.

    I’m taking this to work for my lunch for the third day in a row. It will likely be five in a row by Friday! Very tasty, very filling!
