Crispy Avocado Tacos

with Refried Black Beans & Chimichurri Crema

A light dusting of polenta gives slices of creamy avocado a crispy coating. Soft, refried black beans bump up the protein and fiber in these tacos, and quick-pickled shallots add a zippy contrast.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast black beans and avocado

Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush 1 tbsp olive oil on baking sheet and lay avocado in single layer. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and sprinkle with just half the polenta. Flip avocado over and repeat. Bake until avocado is crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. Leave oven on for step 4. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil)

2
Make the pickled shallot and chimichurri crema

Stir together shallot, just 1 tbsp lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper in small bowl and set aside. Combine just 1 tsp chimichurri blend, remaining lime juice, yogurt, just half the cilantro, 2 tsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in separate small bowl and whisk until smooth. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp lime juice, 2 tsp chimichurri blend, 4 tsp olive oil)

3
Make the refried black beans

Combine black beans, remaining chimichurri blend, 1 tsp olive oil, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until beans are heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Off heat, mash ¾ of beans with back of fork and cover to keep warm. (4-serving meal: use 2 tsp olive oil, ½ cup water)(TIP: If the bean mixture is too stiff, add 1 tbsp water.)

4
Serve

Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven until heated through, 5 to 6 minutes. Lay warm tortillas on clean work surface. Spread refried black beans evenly on each tortilla and top with crispy avocado. Sprinkle with pickled shallot and remaining cilantro. Serve with chimichurri crema and hot sauce. ¡Buen apetito!
