Total Time:
1 hr


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow onion

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

  • 1 cup thinly sliced poblano pepper

  • 1 cup roughly chopped fresh green beans

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 ½ tablespoons 25%-less sodium taco seasoning mix

  • 1 cup diced avocado

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese

  • 12 (6 inch) white corn tortillas

  • Cooking spray

  • 1 cup refrigerated pico de gallo


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, poblano and green beans; cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Stir in black beans, water and taco seasoning until combined; cook, stirring often, until the juices thicken, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, uncovered, 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine avocado, cilantro and lime juice in a medium bowl; stir to mash until mostly smooth. Set aside, uncovered, at room temperature, until ready to serve.

  3. Preheat air fryer to 400°F for 5 minutes. Stir cheese into the vegetable mixture until evenly combined. Wrap 3 tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on High until warm, about 20 seconds. Place the warmed tortillas on a work surface; spoon about 1/3 cup veggie mixture into the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly and place seam-side down on the work surface. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and filling.

  4. Arrange 4 to 6 taquitos, seam-side down, about 1/2-inch apart in the basket; lightly coat with cooking spray. Cook, flipping and coating with additional cooking spray halfway, until well browned and crispy, 8 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining taquitos.

  5. Serve the taquitos with the guacamole, pico de gallo and additional cilantro, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
