Before I begin, I confess I did not use any olive oil. I was intending to put it in grilled burritos/wraps, so I figured the lime juice and other ingredients would be good enough without making it so runny that the wrap was messy.
That being said here is how I prepared it - slightly mashed the 2 cans of beans, let the corn thaw before mixing in, used 2 avocados and 2 red peppers (ONLY because those in my store were very small), 2 tomatoes, 6-7 green onions - and instead of adding cayenne I diced a jalepeno pepper. I did include the fresh cilantro, plus a bit of black pepper, salt, garlic powder and cumin (because we like those flavors) - but not very much, I probably could have used more.
So, there are a few differences, but if you compare, it is not too extreme. Anyway, after we had everything cut up evenly and mixed together I let it sit for no more than an hour while we did other things before I put some in a wheat tortilla with a bit of sour cream and cheese, then I grilled them on the stove. These are really, really good. It does seem a lot more like a 'salad' than any kind of wrap filling - I kind of want to just eat it plain or maybe with some chips - but it is really good when grilled, too. This recipe is awesome and I will be making many times. My previous black bean wrap filling is nothing in comparison!
