Taco Stuffed Avocados

Taco Stuffed Avocados. A healthy twist on tacos! Load up all your favorite taco toppings into an avocado half for an easy lunch or light dinner.

Hey everyone! It’s Serene from House of Yumm. Today I’m bringing you one of my favorite meals. Tacos! Except I added a little twist to these tacos and stuffed them into an avocado. This makes this dish perfect for a lunch, or even a light dinner. Best of all, my kids absolutely love this meal. I’m pretty sure these taco stuffed avocados are going to be a regular on our meal plan from now on.

It comes together super quick and easy too. Of course, it’s completely customizable. Although I highly recommend that you use my recipe for homemade taco seasoning and follow the instructions on how to make the best taco meat possible!

You can of course use any meat you prefer for the stuffed avocados, maybe some Slow Cooker Mexican Brisket, or Slow Cooker Carnitas. Then load up with your favorite toppings. Cheese of course, some tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro and sour cream are my go tos.

One of the best parts of doing these taco stuffed avocados is that you can scoop some of the avocado out before adding the toppings and use that to make some guacamole.

    1. I have found the best way to get nutritional info on all of the recipes is through MyFitnessPal.com. You just type in the recipe and it tells you! Skinnytaste.com is also a great resource for healthy and delicious meals and provides nutritional info. Hope this helps! XOXO

    I made this for the first time today, and it was very good! The only suggestion I would make, and some thing I will try next time, is to scoop the avocado “meat” out and mash it up, then put it back in the shell, with the fixings on top. That would make it easier to eat.

    1. Great idea! We scooped the entire inside out smeared half back in then topped. Much easier to eat. I also tried slicing in 8ths without taking much out. Either way. FANTASTIC fun recipe!

      You can even mix the mashed avocado with the meat mixture, then fill the empty avocado shell back up with the mixture. It is very yummy, and a few drops of lemon juice keeps it from turning brown, although it is still good, just not pretty anymore.

  2. Any nutritional values available for this recipe? It looks good but I also have to watch my fat & calorie intake as well as carbs. I’m diabetic and always looking for good, low-fat, low-calorie, & low-carb recipes.

  3. I am really tired of cooking the same boring stuff. I want to learn how to cook all these foods that u have in these pictures with the recipes.
    Thanks, from Angela

  4. I tried this about a month ago and again tonight and I think it’s my new favorite! I’ve been trying to get healthy fats in my diet and not only are the avocados great but I don’t know that I’ll even need the sour cream! Thanks for this recipe
