My husband often likes to lead these up with butter and sour cream then top with bacon crumbles. This recipe came about when I was trying to mimic the creaminess of those ingredients without all the animal products and fat. Naturally creamy avocado and beans do this well. The flavorful vegan cilantro crema is made with silken tofu, which is very low in fat but loaded with flavor. You’ll find so many uses for this!
Fluffy Baked Potatoes take 16 minutes in an Instant Pot pressure cooker.
Spoon refried vegan black beans over top and sliced avocado. Top with fresh, thinly sliced jalapeño and a flavorful cilantro cream. So easy!
