About The Recipe…
This recipe starts with your choice of Indianlife Large Wraps, and marries the flavors of nutrient-rich cooked black beans with Indianlife Cumin and fresh vegetables. In this version we are using Indianlife Organics Flax or Chia Wraps, but our Tortilla Wrap, Coriander Wrap or Spinach Wrap would be just as delicious!

Our Organic Chia Wrap features 5 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein, and our Organic Flax boasts 2 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.

Treasured by the ancient Aztecs, Chia is a modern ‘super seed’ rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), antioxidants, healthy plant protein and minerals.
Grown since the beginning of civilization, flax seeds are among the oldest crops. For vegetarians, they’re an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, plant lignans which may help protect against some cancers, and valuable dietary fiber.
About Black Beans – A High-Protein, High-Nutrition Pantry Staple!
Chances are, when you think of Black Beans you think of spicy South American or Mexican fare. But black beans deserve a place in your pantry year-round. They’re among the most versatile vegan/vegetarian “go to” ingredients in everything from hot dishes, chilis and soups to cold salads and wraps.
Black Beans, and all beans, are considered beneficial for colon/digestive health and bean intake is linked to lower rates of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Black Beans in particular are especially rich in healthy “micro-nutrients”. They get their shiny black colors from health-promoting anthocyanin flavonoids. A One-Cup serving of cooked black beans contains roughly: 15.2 grams of Protein, 15 grams of Fiber and just 227 Calories.
Black Bean and Jalapeño with Flax or Chia Wrap
1/2 cup sour cream (can be low fat or a vegan alternative)
1/2 teaspoon Indianlife Cumin Powder
1 (15 oz) can black bean, rinsed and drained
1 small avocado ripe, peeled and diced
1 small Jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or coriander leaves
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 (11″) Indianlife Organics Flax or Chia wrap
Combine sour cream and cumin in small bow;stir with wisk
Combine beans and next 5 ingredients in a bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons sour cream mixture down center of each wrapper. Spoon black bean mixture evenly over sour cream mixture.
Roll wrap up and secure with wooden picks, if desired. Cutting Tip: Let the wrap sit for a moment after rolling it and if possible, turn the wrap seam-side down to cut. A clean cut all the way through with as few motions back and forth as possible helps ensure your fillings stay in place and enables you to cut smaller pieces if desired.
Try using a sharp, non-serrated knife. Cut wrap in half or 3 pieces and enjoy.
Storing Prepared Wraps
Wraps can be stored in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. You can also make them, chill, slice and freeze in lunch-ready sections.
