Crispy Black Bean Tacos with Avocado-Lime Sauce

I love black beans in almost any form, but to me the real star of this recipe is the avocado-lime sauce. Think of it as a cross between cilantro-lime dressing and guacamole. It’s absolutely perfect for dipping these tacos, or as a topping for burritos or salads.
