crispy avocado tacos

When we were at MotoGP, we found a taco place that had better mojitos then margaritas but also had crispy avocado tacos.  Personally, I thought maybe not for me but I decided to give them a try.  Most everything else on the menu was too heavy or too much chicken.  I find chicken just hurts.  I had a fish taco and I had a crispy avocado taco.  Usually fish is my favorite but not at this place.  We went back for more tacos and I just ate the crispy ones.

These I decided to replicate.  I read more then a few recipes.   Came up with a plan and proceeded.  Oh my gosh!  Heaven.  The recipe I came up with is gluten free.  It can also easily be vegan if you so wish.  I just did not have any almond or hemp milk in the house.  I had a very full tummy after two tacos, which is half an avocado.  Very happy but very full.  Just be aware.

crispy avocado tacos

1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced into eighths.  It should be soft but firm.

1/2 cup millet flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons dairy or non-dairy milk

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/16 teaspoon ground chipolte pepper

1/16 teaspoon ground ancho pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

4 corn tortillas

1/2 cup black beans

coleslaw, vinegar and oil based

salsa of your choice

avocado crema

goat cheese crumbles

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a shallow dish, put the millet flour.  In a shallow disk, whisk together the oil and milk.  In another shallow dish, mix the almond flour, salt, pepper, and spices.

Dust an avocado slice in the millet flour.  Shake off extra.  Dredge the slice through the oil/milk mixture.  Dredge in the almond flour mixture.  Place on the baking sheet.  Continue until all the slices are done.

Bake for 20 minutes or golden.

Warm the tortillas.  Warm the beans.

When the avocados are roasted, take out of the oven.  Put a tortilla on a plate.  Smear with a bit of bean.  Put two avocado slices.  Add avocado crema, cole slaw, and goat cheese crumbles or anything else you wish.  Repeat until you have four tacos.

Happy belly!
