Garlic-Lime Black Bean and Avocado Spread

Enjoy this spread as a dip with veggie strips and baked chips. Stir in extra veggies to make it a more robust meal: good candidates include jalapenos, corn, and black beans. Layer it in a wrap with grilled chicken, lettuce, and tomatoes for an easy lunch. If you like a little heat, serve it with a splash of hot sauce.
