White beans mashed with ripe avocado and blended with sharp Cheddar and onion makes an incredibly rich, flavorful filling for this wrap. The tangy, spicy slaw adds crunch. A pinch (or more) of ground chipotle pepper and an extra dash of cider vinegar can be used in place of the canned chipotles in adobo sauce. Wrap these up to take as a healthy and portable lunch for work. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2009

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk vinegar, oil, chipotle chile and salt in a medium bowl. Add cabbage, carrot and cilantro; toss to combine.

    Advertisement
  • Mash beans and avocado in another medium bowl with a potato masher or fork. Stir in cheese and onion.

  • To assemble the wraps, spread about 1/2 cup of the bean-avocado mixture onto a wrap (or tortilla) and top with about 2/3 cup of the cabbage-carrot slaw. Roll up. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut the wraps in half to serve, if desired.

Tips

Tip: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they'll keep at least 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.

Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That's why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.

I made this for lunch today and really enjoyed it! I added a sprinkle of ground cumin and ground coriander to give it that little extra mexican flavour and a little lemon to the avocado mix to prevent it from discolouring too much. I couldn't find the adobo chiles at the super market so I used a splash of chili sauce instead. Also to prevent a soggy wrap as I was taking this to work to have later at lunch I placed a cos lettuce leaf down on the wrap before adding any of the filling and it stayed dry for the most part. I have to say I was worried when I opened the tin of white beans and my cat started going crazy at my feet (she only eats cat biscuits) and even jumped on the bench (which she has never done before)!!! But when I tasted the avocado/white bean mixture before putting it on the wrap I was quite impressed. It tastes just like a really nice guacamole. It would be nice with some lime juice and fresh chopped tomatoes in there too which I might try next time. Pros: Healthy versatile and tasty Cons: N/A Read More

It was pretty good. I shredded the cabbage mixture myself and instead of cider vinegar and canola oil I used balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The red onion was my favorite part. I added the cheese but it was overpowered by the slaw so I couldn't really taste it. I also used a gluten free wrap made with ancient grains.:) Read More

I did not care for this at all. The white bean avocado half was lovely but the slaw just did not work at all. Even if it tasted ok the smell was too much. I don't like coleslaw though so maybe I should have realized it wouldn't be my cup of tea going in. Going to salvage the ingredients by using chicken and romaine for the other half instead of the nasty slaw. Read More

I will definitely make this recipe again. It was easy and made from simple ingredients. I am wondering if anyone has taken this for lunch the next day. There are only 2 of us and there was enough for 2 more wraps. I guess I will find out tomorrow. I am keeping the beans mixture slaw mixture and wraps separate in the fridge. I hope this will extend it's freshness until lunch tomorrow. Read More

This is a great no-cook option for busy summer nights. I have made it with pre-shredded cabbage and carrots and recommend shredding your own in the food processor--it holds together better that way and the flavor is fresher. I also find that the filling proportions suggested in the recipe are too much for an 8" tortilla. Just means you get an extra wrap out of it if you make it with 8" instead of 10". Good the next day too. Really easy to make vegan by leaving out the cheese. You really don't need it (although I like it). Pros: quick no-cook adaptable Cons: A little high in calories hard to fit ingredients in 8 inch tortilla Read More

My husband and 11 year old picky eater loved it! I left the beans whole and warmed slightly since my daughter will only eat what she can identify and thinks salads will end her life. She needed something warm with this meal combination. I left out the cheese and used extra virgin olive oil instead. As well I mixed chopped tomatoes and lime juice with the avocado. I made enough for our lunches tomorrow. Yummy and will repeat this recipe many times. Read More

I made this almost as written no cheese or cilantro although I wish I had the cilantro. It was very delicious fresh and filling. I blended the avocado and beans in my food processor.

I love this recipe! I cook just for myself and I don't even mind eating it 4 days in a row. Following some of the comments I used some lime in place of some of the vinegar. I also agree with a commenter that it needs close to double the slaw mix (and perhaps a little more dressing). I added chiles to make it spicier and kept the oil at 1 tbsp even tho I added more of the other ingredients. I also added 1.5-2 oz thinly sliced chicken breast. I was able to keep the avocado mix lefotvers fresh but putting it in a dish and squeezing lime on top. Then I tightly wrapped it with sara wrap and put it inside some foil. Maybe that's overkill but it is still a lovely green 24 hours later! The only con is hand grating the carrots makes a serious mess and I will just buy it pre-shredded next time. Read More

Actually I stuck to the recipe pretty consistently and was impressed with the bright intense colors from the cole slaw. I used the blender on the slaw mixture and I got tired of pieces and bunches getting stuck- so I peeled the carrot. When I got to the bean-avocado part I put the beans in a gal.zip lock bag took my trusty rolling pin out and smashed them all (and the avocado) in a couple of minutes spent rolling it across the bag. My husband and I each made his own-but were still taken by the festive look-once they were done. I can see these being used as in a pot luck with a southwestern theme. We will have it during the hot summer days. Read More

Great even with no cheese This was a big hit at our house even though I left out the cheese and the oil to make it healthier. I used the substitution mentioned at the top of the recipe for the canned chipotles (ground chipotles extra vinegar) but mine didn't have very much kick so we ended up adding a mild tomatillo sauce to our wraps to amp up the flavor. Super healthy and so light yummy. and refreshing. Read More

I replaced the vinegar with fresh squeezed lime juice and I'd highly recommend that to others who love the fresh taste of lime. I also added a little more chipotle and cilantro. The left overs aren't as pretty as the avocado tends to oxidize but that doesn't change the flavor at all. Perfect for a hot summer night or a packed lunch.

I always like to change up recipes and make them my own (plus I have to work with what I have in the kitchen!) so I used sprouted grain tortillas (no flour). Subbed red beans for white beans no biggie and am not a fan of raw onion so I used 2 big garlic cloves for the bite and some chopped up orange pepper for the crunch. I believe that cilantro is a must with most dishes so I mixed that in the bean mixture as well. It was fantastic! Ate two and was super full. Added some leftover quinoa to the second one which added some nice firm texture and nutty flavor. I will make this again for sure! So easy and healthy and yummy! Pros: Lots of raw ingredients!

I took a little bit of everyone's advice and it turned out AWESOME!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE...great summer meal. I used 1.5 T of cider vinegar instead of 2 I made the bean/avocado mixture a little bit more guacamole-y by adding a few splashes of lemon juice (didn't have a lime) some garlic some olive oil about 1/4 t salt and a little bit of freshly ground pepper. I would think that you could make both mixtures ahead of time to be ready for dinner too...I actually think it would give the cabbage mix more time to have the flavors meld and I think the avocado mix would hold up and not brown with the added lemon or lime juice (plus you could press saran wrap on the top). (if you make ahead and refrigerate I would take it out and let it get to room temp.) Oh and I also just put the tortillas straight on my burner on a low-med flame for like 5-10 secs each side before filling. and for all you cilantro haters out there (i know you're out there!) my hubby HATES it and didn't even notice it was in there. I personally would like a lot more in there so next time I'll just sprinkle some more in my wrap--I am admittedly a little crazy about it though!:) Read More

My DH loved this. I made it for a few of this week's lunches and he couldn't get enough of them. He texted me specifically at lunch to tell me how good it was. Then ate another one as a snack when he got home. He took his third one with him to work today (that all three wraps in the span of 24 hrs!). I'm going to try the one that's left for my lunch today. I used Flatout's Sundried Tomato Wraps. I love the suggestion of adding a little bit of garlic more S&P to the avocado/bean mix. I just naturally used a few drops of lime juice just to keep the mix from browning. Any recipes that calls for chipotle chilies in adobe sauce I always use chipotle salsa (Herdez or La Preferida Brand) instead because I've found it keeps longer in the fridge and that way i don't have to dice the chipotles. I ended up adding 3 tsp of the chipotle salsa (I like heat) to the slaw mix and letting it sit overnight simply because when I got to the avocado part my avocado was overripe and I had to run to the store to get another one then assemble the wraps in the morning. But I think it really helped meld the flavors in the slaw together more. I will definitely be making this again I think my DH would throw a fit if I didn't. Read More

Good choice for Meatless Monday I took these to a potluck at work and they were a big hit. I chose to use broccoli slaw instead of the cabbage and carrots. Personally I would have preferred a little more "heat" but serving with salsa allows individuals to create their preferred "heat" level. I will definitely make these again as they were tasty and easy to make. Pros: Good taste simple recipe Read More

Good starting point All the flavors mixed together in this wrap were great. The cabbage mix tasted odd alone; it was too sour and with the spicy element just tasted odd. The bean and avocado mixture was creamy if a bit bland on its own but with a couple of tweaks I think it could be really good dip. If I make this again I'd mix it differently by putting the spices in with the beans and avocado. The dish as a whole was really tasty and had interesting textures. Cons: The flavor of vinegar mixed with adobo sauce was a little odd. Read More

That's a wrap! I made some minor adaptations but feel I have kept the spirit of the recipe. Taking some other reviewer's suggestions I mixed the chipotle in with the avo/bean mix and also added a little garlic salt and fresh lime juice. For the cabbage mix I subbed lime juice instead of vinegar; it goes nicely with the cilantro and serves the same purpose. For my wrap instead of a tortilla I borrowed an idea from Rod Rotondi's "Raw Food for Real People" and used a raw collard green after carefully trimming down as much of the tough stem as possible while still leaving the leaf intact. (1. Lay leaf flat on cutting board. 2. Insert small paring knife near small end of stem and carefully slice away excess stem working your way down to the thick end and keeping knife blade parallel to the leaf.) This makes for a tasty colorful wrap lowers the calorie count and gets some healthy greens into your meal! With my own modifications this is definitely a keeper for me. Pros: Fresh easy quick Cons: Dense meal if using tortilla wraps Read More

Quick easy tasty This burrito is excellent. Some minor adjustments: used packaged cole slaw for cabbage and carrots added a splash of raspberry vinegar to mashed beans and avocado. This recipe could easily be adapted to add chopped shrimp or cucumber or fresh basil instead of cilantro. This is a keeper. Pros: Great summer eats Read More

Wrap with a zing! I am vegetarian and get tired of the usual veggies in a wrap. This was a fun and tasty idea. The beans add plenty of fiber and protein. I cheated and used store bought chipotle glaze instead. I left out the canola oil and used the cider vinegar to control the temperature of the sauce for the slaw. Loved the slaw! Gave it a great zing! Pros: Easy flavorful Cons: Very light meal. Needs to be paired with something else. Read More

Wrap with a Kick I liked this wrap and would definitely make it again. The chipotle peppers in adobo definitely give the wrap a spicy kick which is good but this sometimes overpowers the other flavors in the wrap. The only change I made was adding 2 teaspoons of lime juice to the avocado/bean mixture. Pros: Filling Flavorful Read More

Delicious This was a great wrap I never would have thought of mixing white beans (I used Great Northern) with avocado. The carrot-cabbage slaw gives it a nice kick. I used three chopped up chipotle peppers. Pros: fiber packed easy to assemble Read More

awesome! I made this and it was very good. I used chipotle chili powder (2 tsp.) instead added garlic powder to the avocado/bean mix left out the salt added lime juice and used corn tortilla wraps. I like that you get the heat from the chipotle but the avocado and beans don't let it dominate the flavor. very good! I will be making again. it could be used as an appetizer at a party snack light lunch or dinner. Read More
