Refried Bean Hummus

  • 1 15 oz can refried beans

  • 1 15 oz can chick peas

  • 2 tbsp tahini paste

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 3-4 tsp water, to thin if needed


  1. Make the refried bean hummus by adding all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add water a teaspoon at a time if needed to thin out the hummus if necessary. Refrigerate the hummus when done. 

  2. In a large oiled skillet, add onion and cook until they begin to become translucent. Add in the pepper slices and continue to saute to cook veggies until tender. During the last 3-5 minutes of cook time, add in the cherry tomatoes. 

  3. Start to layer a bowl with the brown rice. Top with veggie mixture, slices of avocado, salsa, and a heaping scoop of the black bean hummus. 

  4. Garnish dish with cilantro leaves and serve.
