In a bowl, mash the black beans with the salsa, avocado and olive oil. Season with a little salt if needed.
Place the wrap or tortilla on a work surface and spread a thin layer of the black bean mixture evenly over the surface. Distribute the spinach leaves over the surface of the black bean mixture and lay the chicken strips across the center of the wrap from one side to the other. Top the chicken with strips of red bell pepper or cucumber if you like.
Starting from the bottom of the wrap, tightly roll it, tucking in the ingredients as you roll, until the outer seams meet. Wrap the pinwheel in plastic wrap or parchment paper and refrigerate for 1/2 hour to overnight.
Slice into 3/4-inch slices and serve.
