For 10-12 servings you will need:

- 1 Lime (juice)
- Handful of Cilantro (chopped)
- 15 oz. Black Beans

Put the mango + red onion + red bell pepper + lime juice + cilantro + black beans in a medium bowl. Add a few moderate pinches of sea salt, to taste. Mix well, then add the avocados if you choose to. Stir gently.
Serving size for the filling is around 1/2 cup. You can also add sour cream, salsa, or sriracha if you like it hot. It’s also best if the tortillas are heated up in a skillet first, but they are delicious either way. The nutritional label will include a dollop of sour cream, the salsa, sriracha and the avocado.
