I love the flavors of traditional huevos rancheros, but the restaurant-style ones are loaded with fat. This version uses Napa cabbage instead of iceberg for more nutrition and whole-grain wraps instead of tortillas.

1 15-ounce can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed
4 eggs (preferably omega-3-enhanced)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 avocado, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 cup salsa
4 10-inch whole-wheat wraps
½ cup organic Mexican-style shredded cheese
1 cup chopped Napa cabbage
1 vine-ripened tomato, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1. In a small pan, warm the beans over low heat, mashing lightly with a spatula. Keep the beans over low heat.
2. Whisk the eggs together, and add the salt and pepper. In a separate frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the eggs and lower the heat to medium-low. M ove eggs around the pan with a heatproof spatula until scrambled, about 4 minutes.
3. Cut the lime in half. Squeeze one half over the chopped avocado. Cut the other half into wedges for serving; set aside.
4. In a heatproof container, microwave the salsa for about 40 seconds.
5. Place the wraps—one at a time—on a plain paper towel, and microwave for 30 seconds.
6. Place the wrap on a large plate, and in the center, place ¼ of the beans, eggs, cheese, salsa, and remaining toppings. Fold in ends of wrap, and begin rolling in from one end. Serve with a wedge of lime.
