Ingredients

Avocado Wedges:

  • 3 medium avocados
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 3/4 cup almond meal can substitute with breadcrumbs if not vegan
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Taco Ingredients:

  • flour tortillas can use corn tortillas for a GF option or lettuce wraps for low carb
  • green and purple cabbage
  • cilantro and fresh lime wedges

Chipotle Crema:

  • 2 Tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can of chipotles
  • 1/4 lime juiced
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit

  2. Cut avocado lengthwise and twist halves to separate. Remove pit and peel skin off. Cut into wedges.

  3. Pour almond milk into a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl mix almond meal and seasonings.

  4. Dip avocado slices in almond milk then press in almond meal to coat avocado slice on all sides. Using a spoon to pour the almond meal on the avocado makes this step easier and less messy!

  5. Place avocado fries on nonstick baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes until lightly golden

  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 1-2 minutes. Taste best if eaten immediately.

Make Chipotle Crema:

  1. Add all ingredients to small mixing bowl and mix well. Add more adobo sauce for heat, or lime juice for more acidity.

Assemble Tacos:

  1. Pile cabbage onto a warm tortilla. Top with 2-3 avocado wedges. Add a drizzle of the sauce, and season with chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice!
