Black Bean and Avocado Tacos

"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)."

Ready In:




  • Drain beans, reserving 1/2 cup of liquid. Rinse beans and drain again.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    Great alternative to beef filled burritos/tacos. Black beans and avocado give it substance and it is actually quite filling.

    I was so tired tonight. I whipped this up in just a few minutes and it hit the spot! I used a flax, oat bran, whole wheat wrap. Thank you my adopted one!
