15 min Black Bean and Corn Pitas

This protein-packed mixture of seasoned vegetables, black beans, and cheese makes 4 servings considering ½ pita per serving.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium black beans 
  • 1 cup of frozen corn, thawed 
  • 1 cup fresh or no-salt-added canned tomatoes 
  • 1 avocado, chopped (use our avocado slicer for safety)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (enhance the flavor, use our small vegetable chopper)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or more to taste (our adjustable metering spoon does the job just right)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice 
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder (measure it with our metering spoon)
  • 2 medium whole wheat pita pockets 
  • 1⁄3 cup shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese (shred with care with our unique 5-in-1 Kitchen shredder)

Preparation:

1. Drain and rinse beans (use our collapsible colander for fast rinsing) In a medium bowl, combine beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, and garlic. Add parsley, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and chili powder.

2. Cut pita bread in half to form 4 pockets, and spoon equal amounts of filling into each half. Top with cheese and serve (use our cooking helper for quick filling).
