Ingredients

    * 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
    * 3/4 cup chopped red onion
    * 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    * 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    * 1 tablespoon chili powder
    * 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    * 2 tablespoons lime juice
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
    * 3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt
    * 2 teaspoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
    * 4 6-inch pita breads, preferably whole wheat
    * 1/2 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
    * 1 ripe avocado, sliced
    * 1 ripe tomato, sliced

Directions

1. Combine black beans, onion, cilantro, garlic, chili powder, cumin and lime juice in a large bowl; season with salt. Slightly mash the beans while stirring, until all ingredients are incorporated and the mixture just holds together. Stir together mayonnaise, sour cream (or yogurt) and chipotle in a small bowl.
2. Slice off the top third of each pita; open them up and spread the bean mixture inside. Top with the chipotle mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, sliced avocado and tomato. Serve within 30 minutes.
