Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap

I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie with great recipes:-)

It has been a crazy couple weeks for me. I played way too much and now, our trip to Kansas is upon us and I am completely unprepared! Not to mention, I still have to wrap up the end of the school year. Yikes! Hold on kid's it is going to be a bumpy ride:-)

This week, I am going to focus on getting ready for our road trip and as such, I am featuring a recipe that is road-friendly. Wish me luck:-)

Here is everything that I am serving this week:

Monday: Spaghetti (Cleaning Day/Early Bird Registration)

Tuesday: Chicken and Pasta

Wednesday: Pork Chops (Kindergarten Carnival)

Thursday: Eat in the Car (Last Day of School/Road Trip to Kansas)

Friday: Eat Out (Road Trip to Kansas)

Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap

Ingredients:
2 Tbs cider vinegar
1 Tbs canola oil
2 tsp finely chopped canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, (see Note)
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 Tbs minced red onion
4 8- to 10-inch whole-wheat wraps, or tortillas

Directions:
1. Whisk vinegar, oil, chipotle chile and salt in a medium bowl. Add cabbage, carrot and cilantro; toss to combine.

2. Mash beans and avocado in another medium bowl with a potato masher or fork. Stir in cheese and onion.

3. To assemble the wraps, spread about 1/2 cup of the bean-avocado mixture onto a wrap (or tortilla) and top with about 2/3 cup of the cabbage-carrot slaw. Roll up. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut the wraps in half to serve, if desired.
