Black Bean and Avocado Tacos

Made this super simple tacos's for dinner yesterday. This is a great treat for those who love avocado and also to those who want to try and introduce avocado into their diet. Kids will go crazy over this dish,if you top it over with some extra shredded cheese,  mine just loved it without the cheese.

1 tin black beans
1 firm and ripe Avacado
1 medium onion
1 medium tomato
1 tsp cuminpowder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
2 tblsp chopped cilantro
1 tblsp lemon juice
10 taco shells
salt and pepper as required.

Open the black bean tin and filter the water through the strainer. Rinse the beans twice with water and drain completely.
Add 2 tsp of olive oil in a pan, and add half of the chopped onions, saute till translucent. 
To this add the blackbeans, chilli powder,cumin powder and salt.Mix thoroughly and cook for 5 mins in medium heat. Switch of the stove and allow to cool.

For the guacamole - cut the avocado into two, remove the seed and scoop out the pulp into a bowl.
To this add the rest of the chopped onion, tomato, cilantro salt, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
To Assemble - To each of the taco shell add about 2 tblsp of beans and 2 tblsp of the guacomole. Top it up with shreeded cheese if desired.

Soaked and cooked Rajma/Kidneybeans can also be used instead of store bought black beans tin
Shredded lettuce also adds another layer and crunch to the tacos.
The same mixture can also be rolled into a burrito using Tortilla's
