- Small saucepan
- Large nonstick skillet
Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and slice the shallot. Add the sliced shallot to a small saucepan along with the apple cider vinegar, turbinado sugar, and ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer until pickled, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Trim and quarter the Brussels sprouts. Halve, deseed and dice the avocado. Drain and rinse the black beans.
Halve the lime and cut half into wedges. In a small bowl, combine just 1 tsp lime juice, sour cream, as much chipotle morita powder as you’d like, and a pinch of salt. Mix the chipotle crema.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Add the quartered Brussels sprouts and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until charred in places, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the black beans, corn, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the skillet. Cook until the corn is charred, about 3 to 4 minutes. Wrap the corn tortillas in foil and warm them in the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Lay the warm tortillas on a work surface. Smash the diced avocado between the tortillas. Top with Brussels sprouts, black beans, corn, and pickled shallots. Dollop with chipotle crema. Serve with lime wedges. Olé!
