Avocado Tacos

Ok, this is less of a recipe and more of an idea really. I'm always looking for ways to eliminate (especially simple) carbs from meals without making them any less delicious. Not because I think having a tortilla every now and then is the end of the world. But it really has no nutritional value at all, so if you don't need it, don't eat it! In this meal, you don't need it! (And you probably won't miss it at all.)


4-6 avocados

2 pounds lean ground beef

1 small onion, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

3 tablespoons taco seasoning

salt and pepper to taste

Your favorite taco garnishes (We used shredded lettuce, diced tomato, cheese, sour cream, and black olives)


1. Brown ground beef over medium heat with onion and garlic until cooked through. Drain. Add taco seasoning and a splash of water to help coat the entire meat mixture. Stir to incorporate well. Salt and pepper to taste.

2. While beef is cooking, cut each avocado in half and scoop out some of the flesh, leaving about a half inch shell in each. (You can serve the extra as a topping or even turn it into guacamole.)

3. Fill each avocado shell (to overflowing!) with seasoned beef, and top with all of your favorite toppings! Simple as can be! Enjoy!
