Avocado Bean Triscuit Snack


Fall is my favorite time of the year to spend in the kitchen due to the delicious pumpkin and apple flavors.  While this recipe is not a typical "fall" recipe, it does include one of my much loved foods, avocados.  Throughout the days posting on 360FN I have included several recipes with avocados such as Guacamole and Strawberry Avocado Salad.

To create this fiber dense recipe I topped a whole wheat low fat cracker with avocado, tomato, black beans, and fresh cilantro.  The combination of foods creates a delicious flavor.  This recipe can be served as appetizers for your next party, snacks for the family, or even as a meal.  The best news is the three fully loaded crackers will only set you back 160 calories!!


What is your favorite avocado recipe?!

Enjoy!
