Refried Beans and Avocado Soft Tacos

Refried beans and avocado soft tacos are a delicious and satisfying vegetarian or vegan option for lunch or dinner. These tacos are filled with creamy refried beans, sliced avocados, and your choice of toppings. Here’s a simple recipe to make refried bean and avocado soft tacos:


For the Tacos:

  • 8 small soft taco-sized flour tortillas
  • 1 can (15 ounces) refried beans
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (optional, for non-vegan)
  • Lime wedges for garnish (optional)

For the Taco Seasoning (optional):

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Taco Seasoning (Optional):
  • If you want to add extra flavor to your refried beans, mix the chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  1. Heat the Refried Beans:
  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the refried beans. If using the optional taco seasoning, you can add it to the beans and stir to combine. Cook the beans until they are heated through, stirring occasionally.
  1. Prepare the Toppings:
  • While the beans are heating, prepare your taco toppings. Slice the avocados, shred the lettuce, dice the tomatoes, chop the red onion, and chop the fresh cilantro. Arrange these toppings in separate bowls for easy assembly.
  1. Warm the Tortillas:
  • Heat the flour tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave them for a few seconds until they are warm and pliable.
  1. Assemble the Tacos:
  • Lay out a warm tortilla and spread a generous spoonful of the heated refried beans down the center.
  • Top the beans with sliced avocado, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, and chopped cilantro.
  • If you’re using cheese, sprinkle some shredded cheese on top of the other ingredients.
  1. Fold and Serve:
  • Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling and roll it up from the bottom to create a taco shape.
  • Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and filling ingredients.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Serve the refried bean and avocado soft tacos with lime wedges for garnish and a burst of citrus flavor if desired.
  1. Enjoy your Refried Bean and Avocado Soft Tacos!

These tacos are a tasty and customizable meal. You can add other toppings like sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, or pickled jalapeΓ±os to suit your taste. They are also great for a quick and easy weeknight dinner or a satisfying lunch.
