Need more reasons to give this recipe a go? Well, for a deceptively simple recipe it’s a nutritional powerhouse! One cup of black beans will provide you with 30% of your daily protein, 60% of your daily fiber, as well as a boost of B2, B9, Iron, Magnesium and Manganese. The green chilies and lime juice are loaded with Vitamin C. Cayenne is a powerful antioxidant and is highly anti-inflammatory. One tablespoon of chili powder has almost 50% of your daily Vitamin A.
