1Make Slaw

Add cabbage & carrots to bowl. Add avocado dressing, a pinch of salt & pepper, mix together & set aside.

2Toast Flatbreads

Preheat broiler with top rack 6 inches from heat source. Lightly brush pitas all over with oil. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Broil on top oven rack until lightly browned on both sides, 1–2 minutes per side (watch closely as broilers vary).

3Cook Onions & Ground Beef

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add chopped onions & a pinch each of salt & pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender & browned in spots, 3–4 minutes. Add ground beef & taco blend & cook, breaking up meat into smaller pieces, until browned & cook through, 3–4 minutes.

4Assemble Gordita

Divide beef mixture between pitas. Drizzle with oil, then top with cheddar. Broil on top oven rack until edges of pitas are lightly toasted & cheese is melted, about 1 minute (watch closely).

5To Serve

Serve gorditas topped with some of the slaw, garnished with whole cilantro leaves. Serve remaining slaw on the side with charred corn salad & lime wedge. Enjoy!
