I love the flavor combination of black beans and avocado! Using reduced fat sour cream and cheese, a serving of 2 tacos is 11 points (WW).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain beans, reserving 1/2 cup of liquid. Rinse beans and drain again.
  2. Combine beans and reserved liquid in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until simmering. Simmer 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Cover and set aside to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Warm each tortilla on the griddle for about 1 minute each side, or until hot but still soft. Place on plate in oven to keep warm. Continue until all the tortillas are heated. Cover plate of tortillas with foil.
  4. To serve, spoon some beans down center of hot tortilla. Place a few slices of avocado along the beans. Add any other garnishes as desired, such as cheese or lettuce. Top with a tbsp each of sour cream and salsa and a few leaves of cilantro, if desired. Fold up and eat while still hot.

Yum! I love Mexican food that's still healthy :) I've started making breakfat tacos/burritos in the mornings with eggs, avocado, turkey and cheese - so good and keeps you full all day!

That was terrific! I only used black beans, avocado, cheese, and sour cream on corn tortillas because it was all I had on hand and it turned out great! Hit the spot! Thanks for posting :-)

Delicious! I used whole wheat tortillas as a personal preference. Also, since I drained off all of the black bean liquid to reduce the sodium, I added lime juice to the pan for the liquid, since we love the combo of black bean and lime-- perfect! Thanks for sharing!
