Avocado Tacos

Oh, tacos. Toss some stuff in a tortilla and call it delicious. Traditionally, tacos are made with corn tortillas but my personal preference is flour. Either one will work with this recipe.

Ingredients

  • avocados, diced
  • red onion, diced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1  cup  corn
  • One  15 1/2- ounce can black beans
  • 1  teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • Corn tortillas
  • 4  tablespoons  sour cream (optional)

Directions

Combine the avocado, half the onions, lime juice, and cilantro in a medium mixing bowl and stir until mixed well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the corn and beans and stir. Season with chili powder, cumin, and coriander. Stir until well combined. On a tortilla, place a little less than 2 spoonfuls of the bean mix, then a spoonful of the avocado salsa. Top with sour cream and serve.
