Corn Tortillas with fried beans and guacamole

This is an absolutely delicious version of vegetarian tacos! Thereby, I will share with you my favorite guacamole recipe. (The recipe for the corn tortillas is taken from the back of the cornmeal package from Saltå Kvarn.)

Serves 6

1 batch of corn tortillas (recipe below)
1 batch of fried black beans (recipe below)
1 batch of guacamole (recipe below)
1 cucumber, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 red onion, chopped

Serve the fried beans on a corn tortilla topped with chopped vegetables and guacamole. Try to roll up if you can, otherwise spread the topping on the tortilla and eat it like a pizza.

Corn tortillas

2.5 dl cornmeal
1 dl wheat flour
1 egg
5 dl water
1 tbsp oil
1 pinch of salt

Whisk together eggs, water and oil and then mix in the remaining ingredients. Fry the batter as pancakes.

Fried black beans

700 g cooked black beans (drained weight)
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 dl water
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp ground chilli pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
Oil for frying

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the beans and mash half of them with a fork while they are frying for a couple of minutes. Stir in the water, tomato puree and spices and simmer for a few minutes.

My best guacamole

4 avocados, peeled and mashed
2 dl yogurt
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
juice of half a lime
2 pinches herb salt
0.5 tsp cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients.
