I always appreciate a new twist on a favorite, especially one which utilizes beans and fresh cabbage rolled in a handy wrap. Unfortunately what looks good on paper, is not always so once made. Starting with just 2 garlic cloves made the bean puree garlicky enough.... couldn't image adding the other two PLUS the two in the slaw. And I could have done without the mayo -- really didn't add to the flavor -- would have been tastier using olive oil. The zing from the dijon and cumin was enjoyable; however, the bean puree could have benefited from the zing of fresh lemon juice instead of that in powdered form. Once assembled, the textures of the cooked slaw with cooked chicken with soft bean puree in a soft flour tortilla were rather... well, boring. The concept is a good one and deserving of another go-round... just with a few tweaks.
