Fajita Gnocchi with Lime Avacado Salsa Recipe
- For the Lime Avacado Salsa:
- 2 large Avacados
- 1 package 8oz premade Pico
- 3 TBSP lime juice
- For the Fajita Gnocchi:
- 1 large pkg premade gnocchi
- 1 large green pepper, sliced in strips
- 1 large red pepper, sliced in strips
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 1 can black beans, rinsed
- Olive oil
- 4 TBSP butter
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Sour cream
- Chopped green onion
Make the Salsa:
Spoon the pico into a large bowl.
Add the cubed Avocados and lime juice; gently stir to combine.
Cover and refrigerate.
Making the Fajita Gnocchi:
In a large skillet over medium heat, add 3 TBSP olive oil and 2 TBSP butter.
When melted, add the gnocchi; cook over medium heat, until gnocchi is lightly brown.
In the same skillet, place 3 TBSP olive oil and the remaining 2 TBSP butter.
When melted, add the sliced peppers and onions; cook over medium-low heat until veggies are softened a bit–about 7-10 minutes.
Drain veggies and add back to the skillet along with the gnocchi, black beans and seasoning.
Cook over low heat, stirring until all combined and heated through about 10 minutes.
When ready to serve, top each serving with a generous amount of the salsa, a dollop of sour cream and some chopped green onion.
