Black Bean Tacos with Avocado Cream
- ½ cup Red Onion Diced
- 2 cups Tomatoes Diced
- 4 cups Romaine lettuce diced (or finely shredded cabbage)
- Mild Salsa optional
- Heat the black beans with the cumin and other seasonings, and fire-roasted tomatoes in a saucepan for several minutes until heated through. You can mash a few of them with the back of your spoon if you wish. Salt to taste.
- To prepare the tacos, place about 1/4 cup of the black beans into each taco shell. Top with avocado cream (recipe in notes), diced tomatoes, red onion, lettuce, and salsa.
To thin the sauce add 1-2 tablespoons water. This will help to spread it over the tacos.
Add salt to taste.
