1 lb. red potatoes1 Tbsp oil 1 Tbsp. fresh or 1 tsp. dried thyme 1 Tbsp fresh or 1 tsp dried marjoram 3 medium green onions, minced 1 Cup canned or cooked pinto beans 2 medium avacados, ripe 1 clove garlic, minced 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 1/4 tsp salt pinch cayenne 1 Tbsp red onion, minced 1 medium roma tomato, chopped finely, when in season 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced flour tortillas
Finely chop potatoes & put in a pan with boiling water. Simmer for 5 mins & drain in a colander. Put the oil in a lg. skillet & heat. Add thyme, marjoram, and green onion. Cook for 2 mins & add the potatoes. Sauté for 15 mins, tossing occasionally, until potatoes are browned in places. Add pinto beans & heat through for 5 mins. Remove from heat. For a not-so-local topping, make guacamole: cut open the avacado and remove the pit. Scoop out avocado & place in a bowl. Add the garlic, lemon juice, salt, & cayenne. Mash together until fairly smooth. Add the red onion, tomato, & cilantro. Stir to mix well. Let the flavors blend at room temp. Warm tortillas. Pile on potato mixture and guacamole and roll. Top with salsa, if desired.
