Black Bean Mango Pinwheels - Spice Up your Game Day!

These black bean mango pinwheels are the perfect game day appetizer -- full of protein, fiber, and brightly colored fruits and veggies, you can actually feel good about serving these to your friends and family! 

To start, we took a leisurely trip down the Mexican food aisle at our local Safeway to gather our ingredients. Babycakes has started reading (so amazing ... AND... helpful!) and looked carefully at the back of each can -- perusing the ingredient list and nutrition facts like any good healthy food blogger's daughter would do!

We chose Old El Paso™ Black Bean Refried Beans because the ingredient list had simple, pronounceable, nourishing ingredients -- just like we like!

They look super fancy, but are simple to make. Just layer on the refried beans, pepper jack cheese (or sub cheddar if you want them to be less spicy), cilantro, roasted bell peppers and mango... then, roll and slice. Easy peasy! Serve with sour cream and/or salsa for dipping. Or eat them plain. Either way they're delicious!
