1/2 cup diced onions

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 can refried beans

1 avocado

1 teaspoon lime juice

Taco seasoning

Directions:

Saute onion in neutral oil until translucent. Add garlic, cook for 1 more minute, and add packaged taco seasoning and ground beef or beef alternative and cook thoroughly. Warm the refried beans and mix with a dash of water. Puree avocado in a blender, then add lime juice.
