Spicy Black Bean Lettuce Wraps

I love the ease of a wrap. Tasty and good for you, without having to cook and heat you up even more than you are already! But have you ever seen the sodium levels on some of these tortilla wraps?! It’s pretty high. So as a substitute, sometimes I like to use large lettuce leaves. Romaine or bibb lettuce works well, but really as long as its large enough for filling, any lettuce will do. And hey, it helps you get even more veggies in your diet!

1 can low sodium black beans, rinsed
1 can low sodium canned diced tomatoes, or two fresh ones diced
1 handful fresh basil, finely chopped
1 TBSP cayenne pepper, or to taste if you don’t love spicy food
1/2 TSP garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Juice and zest of one half a lemon
2 TBSP olive oil
Lettuce as wraps

Mix all ingredients, minus lettuce in a bowl. Allow to sit for 1 hour in fridge. Serve in wrap form!
