Fried Avocado Tacos

There is a local restaurant that my family goes to occasionally. Mostly for their spinach tamales. The last time we were there, while washing my hands in the bathroom, I noticed a sign the restaurant had posted on the wall about their new dishes. Avocado tacos. Avocado tacos?! Well, that certainly got a return trip!

They were only okay. While we were disappointed, it inspired me to try to make my own.

Fried Avocado Tacos

2 c. beer (Mexican beer if you can find it)
2 c. flour
2 t. salt 
2 t. agave nectar 
1 t. baking powder 
2 t. Sriracha sauce
2 c. panko bread crumbs 
Peel and slice the avocados. In a bowl, mix the beer, flour, salt, agave nectar, baking powder and Sriracha sauce. In a Ziploc baggie, add the panko bread crumbs.
Dip the avocado slices in the beer batter, then add to the Ziploc baggie and give it a good shake to coat the avocado. Do this with all of the avocado slices.
In a frying pan in hot oil, deep fry the avocado slices until nicely browned.
Serve the avocado slices in taco shells with lettuce, tomatoes and a dab of vegan sour cream. You can also sprinkle on some chopped cilantro and a spray of lime juice. Enjoy!
