Avocado and White Bean Tacos

I got the recipe from here (plus a few minor changes). 

  • Ingredients: 
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 4 8- to 10-inch whole-wheat wraps, or tortillas
  • Optional: Sour Cream, wickles

  1. Whisk vinegar, oil, and salt in a medium bowl. Add cabbage, carrot and cilantro; toss to combine. 
  2. Put beans in blender (or food processer). Blend until desired consistency. I also added some garlic salt in here. 
  3. Mix beans and avocado in another medium bowl and mash with a fork. Stir in onion. 
  4. To assemble the wraps, spread about 1/2 cup of the bean-avocado mixture onto a tortilla, some cheese and top with about 2/3 cup of the cabbage-carrot slaw (and if you're like me, some sour cream and wickles!). Try to get your tortilla to close and chow down!! 

This was delicious and really easy/fast to put together. I loved the sweet/vinegar-y slaw with the spicy pickles and avocado. The wickles definitely made them for me (: MMmmmmm.
