Black Bean, Avocado and Chicken Wraps

I don't know that I really consider this a recipe, but I do know I liked it enough that I plan on making this many times over the summer with different variations. The original inspiration for this dish came from the May/June 2009 issue of Clean Eating magazine. I added several more ingredients to my wrap as indicated below in red.

Black Bean, Avocado & Chicken Wrap

1/4 cup avocado, mashed with fork
1/4 cup salsa (I used Muir Glen organic cilantro salsa)
2 oz roasted or baked chicken breast, chopped (I used chicken tenders that I roasted in the oven)
1/4 cup low sodium canned black beans, drained rinsed and lightly mashed with a fork (I left mine whole)
1/2 cup organic canned corn
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime
2 small (6 inch) whole wheat flour tortillas

Mix salsa with mashed avocados. Scoop avocado mixture onto center of tortilla. Add layer of beans, corn, chicken and cilantro. Squeeze fresh lime juice on top. Tightly roll to enclose filling.
