Sunday Night Healthy Mexican

I love making Mexican food at home!
There is so much you can do with some simple ingredients, and make it healthy!!
Here is a simple recipe that I made up for a waistline friendly, Sunday Night Meal.
My take on a Fajita Salad.

Black Beans, Lettuce, Tri-Color Peppers, Onion, Grape Tomatoes, Avocado

3 Easy Steps:
1.  Wash, Prep, and Cut your lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and avocado.
Slice avocado, tomatoes in half, and peppers and onions in strips.
2.  Saute peppers and onions in canola oil.  After veggies are soft, add blacks beans into skillet to heat up.  At this point you can add some seasoning of you liking to the veggies and beans.
I added a sprinkling of cumin, chili power, salt and pepper.
3.  Assemble you salad with the lettuce on the bottom, then the veggies and beans, and lastly the tomatoes and avocado.

You could just eat the salad like this, with maybe some salsa and a bit of light sour cream.
I made a simple vinaigrette with the juice of half a lime, 1/4c. extra virgin olive oil, and a squeeze of honey.  

Yumm!  There you have an easy, healthy Sunday night meal!
FYI...I used a half a can of black beans for one salad, but a whole can would be perfect for two.

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend!!
