1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 medium avocado
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh cilantro**
1 Tbsp lime juice, or more to taste
1 clove garlic, pressed through a garlic crusher
For serving
8 (6-inch) yellow corn tortillas,*** warmed
Shredded romaine lettuce, shredded Mexican blend cheese, diced tomatoes


In a medium saucepan combine black beans, salsa, chili powder and cumin. Simmer mixture for about 5 -10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slightly mash beans if desired.
Meanwhile in a food processor pulse together avocado, Greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice and garlic until cilantro is finely minced. Season with salt and pepper to taste (if you want the sauce thinner you can add in 1 Tbsp water).
