Don’t run away yet.  Trust me, these are worth trying!

Filled with black beans, artichokes, olives and green chiles.  Seasoned with hot sauce, chili powder and cumin.  Thickened up with oatmeal!

Ingredients:

• 15 oz. black beans
• 4 oz. can diced chiles
• ½ onion
• 3 garlic cloves
• 6 oz. jar artichoke hearts
• 12 large black olives
• 3 Tbsp. Egg Whites (or 1 egg)
• 1 Tbsp. chili powder
• 1 Tbsp. cumin
• 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
• ¾ cup oatmeal

Directions:

• Drain and rinse black beans
• Mash black beans and chiles
•Chop onion, garlic, artichokes and olives in food processor.  My processor is tiny so I had to chop the onions and garlic in one round and artichokes and olives the second round.

I added a little hot sauce on top for a bit more kick (I could eat Cholula Hot Sauce on most everything).
Enjoy!
