    Create the avocado dip:
    1. Add the avocado dip ingredients to a food processor. Blend until smooth, stopping every now and then to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add more water, one tablespoon at a time, as needed to thin out the consistency into a spreadable dip.
    To assemble tacos:
    1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and warm the tortillas in the skillet. If you're using taco shells, warm the taco shells in an oven or toaster oven for a few minutes at 350°F.
    2. Spread a spoonful of refried beans in the center of each tortilla or taco shell. Add a spoonful of the prepared avocado dip, some onion slices, and any of the suggest preferred garnishes.
