Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap

July/August 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (572 votes)

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.

The radicchio was really bitter (probably just the one I got), but other than that it was good. Instead of fresh avacado, I used some avacado veggie dip that I has leftover, which had a hint of jalapeno so it was really good.

I think I'm going to make it

I think I'm going to make it the way you did next time. I know I COULD like this but it's just not all there yet. Maybe adding some garlic powder and lime juice to the bean mixture would liven it up a big. Thanks for the ideas!

Great Wrap

I made this almost as stated but tweaked it to my liking. I added sliced chicken breast for extra protein, some lemon juice to the avocado mixture and added some half fat sharp cheddar.

easy, healthy
Sum of the parts better than the components

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.

Delicious and easy for a packed lunch

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.

fiber packed, easy to assemble
