Find the recipe here www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/refried-bean-and-avocado-soft-tacos.
1 white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
2 (15-ounce) cans no-salt-added pinto beans (about 3 cups), drained and rinsed
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
8 corn tortillas
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 avocados, thinly sliced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until beginning to stick to skillet. Stir in 1/2 cup broth and continue to cook 6 to 8 minutes or until onion is translucent and very tender. Reduce heat to medium-low, add beans and cook 2 to 3 minutes to soften, stirring frequently. Mash beans with a potato masher. Stir in remaining broth, cumin, pepper and salt. Cook 5 minutes longer or until warmed through, stirring occasionally and adding water or more broth as needed for desired consistency.
In a dry skillet, warm each tortilla to soften. Top with a generous scoop bean mixture. Add lettuce, tomato and avocado. Fold in half and serve with your favorite salsa.
