California Avocado Tacos

A fantastic, vegetarian taco that’s both delicious and healthy! If you need more protein in your taco, consider adding cooked chicken, fish, or beans to the pepper and onion mixture.

Tip: This recipe doesn’t need a lot of jalapeño. If you find yourself with most of a pepper leftover, mince and freeze the rest in teaspoon-sized portions for use in similar recipes.

Ingredients

  • Salsa:

    • 1 medium tomato, diced
    • ⅓ cup onion, diced
    • ½ tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 tsp. lime juice
    • Pinch ground cumin
    • 2 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro

    Tacos:

    • 4 bell peppers, sliced
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 12 (8") flour tortillas
    • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • ½ cup chopped celery
    • 1 avocado, sliced

Directions

  1. Mix together the salsa ingredients and set aside.
  2. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and onion and cook until the onion is soft (5-8 minutes).
  3. Fill each tortilla with the bell pepper mixture. Top with remaining ingredients and salsa.
