40 Days-40 Lenten Recipes #37 Super-Healthy Mayan Salad

Remember the authentic magic black beans recipe, here's a great way to use them.
This is a great strict fast recipe too!
I cannot even express how well these flavors blend and yet there is a fantastic kick from the peppers!
This has become one of all-time faves, not only because of the flavors,
but also because of the protein and vitamin power!
This is a complete meal and totally satisfying.
