I had to change this recipe a bit to make it to my liking. The slaw is kind of "meh" on its own, however it is delicious when combined on the wrap with the bean spread. The bean spread itself was lacking in flavor before I put the cheese in. I ended up adding some lime juice to it and skipping the cheese so it was more like a healthy guacamole. Very delicious and I didn't miss the cheese at all.
Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap
From EatingWell: July/August 2009
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. Serve with tortilla chips, salsa and Tecate beer.

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.
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.
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.
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!
