Instructions

  1. Prepare green beans by trimming both ends, and cutting them into 1 inch slices. Steam or blanch green beans for roughly 2 minutes. Remove from steamer or stock pot and run cooked green beans under cold water. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a saute pan. Add minced garlic and salt and saute for 2 minutes. Add sliced bell peppers and cook covered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bell peppers have softened. Add cooked green beans and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, chop tomatoes, lettuce and onion. Set aside.
  4. Prepare easy guacamole. Mash avocado in a bowl with a fork. Mix in salt, cilantro, lime juice, and red pepper flakes.
  5. Assemble tacos by spreading VFR's Taco Sauce on tortilla or on bottom of taco shell, top with lettuce, tomato, onion, then add Green bean-bell pepper mixture, and top with easy guacamole.
