Bean Lettuce Bundles

This was an easy recipe I got from a "healthy meals for 4 under $15" pamphlet I found at Whole Foods!  I enjoyed the lettuce part of it, however my husband preferred the bean mixture in a tortilla!

2 cans of black beans
1/2 avocado, mashed
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
3 scallions, chopped
1/3 c chopped cilantro
2 T lime juice
1 t cumin
1/3 c salsa
8 large romaine lettuce leaves

Heat beans over med heat until warm.  Mash beans and avocado.  Mix all remaining ingredients, except lettuce.  Place approx 1/4 cup in each lettuce leaf and roll like a tortilla.

I liked this dish hot or cold :)
