Easy Avocado and Black Bean Taquitos
Servings: 2
  • 1/4 cup Thrive Culinary Algae Oil
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 avocado
  • 6 small corn tortillas
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
Optional Salsa Recipe
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 shallot
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Before getting started, make sure to preheat your oven to 425 degrees F to get things warmed up. We’ll start by mashing black beans and avocado in two separate bowls. Mix the cumin and chili powder into black bean mash. Next, spread tortillas out on a baking sheet. Bake until hot for two minutes, then transfer to a plate and cover. This makes them softer and easier to roll into the taquito shape without breaking (alternatively, you can heat the tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute).

  2. Now here comes the fun part. Add an inch-wide line of avocado and black beans across the diameter of each tortilla, then roll up into a tightly wrapped cigar shape. Repeat for the remaining tortillas. Once you’re done, heat ¼ cup of Thrive Algae oil on high heat, and then place taquitos in the frying pan, folded side down. Fry for about 45 seconds and then flip over with tongs and fry for an additional 45 seconds. Remove the taquitos from the frying pan and place them on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

  3. To make the optional salsa, simply add all ingredients (tomato, shallot, lime juice, garlic, cilantro) into a food processor and pulse a few times until chopped but chunky. If you don’t have a food processor handy, no worries, you can chop manually and mix.

  4. Enjoy taquitos with salsa and/or guacamole!
