Black Bean Veggie Wraps

Almost every single weekend, the hubby and I used to go to a sports bar called Tiled Kilt after his soccer games to hang out with the rest of the team. We would all grab lunch and some beers and just hang out for the afternoon. Although I didn’t like too many options on the menu (they were really greasy), I think the only item I ever ordered was the black bean veggie wrap! I loved it! It was full of chunks of veggies and black beans and goodness 😍🍅

Unfortunately, they closed recently and I was so unbelievably sad because there wasn’t another one around us, which meant no more black bean veggie wraps for me! Wahh! 😣

On the bright side, I was able to google the ingredients for it, although I did change some of it, but never the less, I got a hint of what they put in it! Now, I know it is supposed to have black beans in it, I didn’t have any in my pantry last night, so I improvised and used refried beans instead because that was all I had. Oops. Still delicious though and super fresh! 👌🏼
