SAM’S TIPS:

A great vegetarian meal idea. The black beans in this recipe provide protein to help you feel full. Generally sour cream is used in these types of recipes, however I substituted Greek yoghurt in its place. Greek yoghurt is very versatile and is a great alternative to sour cream. Greek yoghurt is higher in protein and lower in fat than sour cream so it is a much healthier alternative.
