Mini Bean Black Cups Stuffed with Guacamole

There’s nothing better than sitting outside drinking margaritas and munching on guacamole and chips in the summer! We always order guac when we see it on a restaurant menu and I love to make it at home too since it comes together so quickly. Avocados are part of my hubby’s weightlifting diet, but he’s not allowed to have chips, so I thought it would be fun to come up with a more nutritious way to enjoy guacamole. I dreamed up these cute little black bean cups that are very healthy and flavorful!

I made the dough with black beans, cumin, whole wheat flour, and olive oil, and then pressed it into mini-muffin cups. Then I filled the little cups with this yummy Roasted Pepper Guacamole I saw on Culinary Wannabe’s lovely blog. I love the color and flavor the red peppers added to the guac! These adorable little appetizers are the perfect healthy treats to bring to a BBQ this summer!
