You will need:
- 8 6-inch corn tortillas
- Canola oil cooking spray

- 1 diced avocado
- 2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapenos, plus 2 tablespoons pickling juice from the jar, separated
- 2 cups shredded cabbage or coleslaw

You will need to:
- Position your oven racks in the upper and lower thirds in your oven. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Coat both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray. Place on baking sheets. Bake the tortillas, turning once until they are light brown on both sides, and for about 12 to 14 minutes.
- Combine the avocado, salmon, and jalapenos in a bowl. Combine the cabbage, cilantro, and pickling juice into another bowl. Blend the sour cream, black beans, scallions, and salsa in a food processor until smooth. Transfer the mixture into a microwave safe bowl. Cover, and microwave on high until hot, or about 2 minutes.
