Black bean avocado toast

Black Bean Avocado Toast

You have to try this Mexican spin on traditional Avocado Toast. This recipe works as a good option for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack and dinner. It is also a great idea to repurpose those left over beans. The pickled onions adds the perfect balance to this toast. I promise you will love this recipe and this was 100% approved by hubby.
