Ingredients for Black Bean Lettuce Wraps With Corn Salsa and Coriander Lime Rice
¾ cup jasmine rice
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can corn kernels
1 cup finely chopped red onion
1 red pepper finely diced
3 tablespoons tomato salsa

Prepare the jasmine rice according to package directions.
Open the can of black beans and pour into a colander – rinse and drain. Add beans to a small pot over low heat and add the tomato salsa. Stir to combine. Heat through, stirring occasionally (about 8-10 minutes).
Chop the fresh coriander leaves. Reserve a few pinches for garnish (if desired), then add the coriander to the cooked rice along with the lime juice. Stir to combine.
To put a wrap together: begin with the lettuce leaf, add a scoop of coriander lime rice, followed by a scoop of the black beans, corn, tomato and onion. Sprinkle with reserved coriander leaves and sliced avocado. Fold into a taco-like shape and take a bite – enjoy!
