We love taco nights in my house, and Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps and Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats are favorites in my home! But swapping the lettuce or zucchini for avocado? Even BETTER! You’ll need to eat them with a spoon eat up every last bite. This whole meal is ready in under 30 minutes.

These taco stuffed avocados are actually going on our dinner rotation this week. It’s a win, win because we all love my taco meat recipe, and we love avocados. And, since we over-indulged over the holidays we are cutting back on the carbs. Of course, avocados are loaded with good-for-you fats so they are much healthier than serving on a taco shell. And the portions are really filling, I couldn’t even finish the two.

For my daughter Madison, I’ll make hers on either flour or corn tortillas, or maybe even tostada shells.
