Ingredients

  • 2 avocados large

Taco Meat

  • 1 lb lean ground meat beef, chicken, turkey can be used
  • cup yellow onions diced
  • cup tomatoes diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder optional for spice

Toppings

  • ½ cup diced tomatoes diced
  • ¼ cup red onions diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 3 tablespoon cotija cheese feta can be substituted
  • lime wedges

Instructions

  • Add oil to a large pan and saute the yellow onions over medium high heat. When it starts to get translucent, add the ground meat and break it apart with a spatula as it cooks. Once cooked through, drain any excess grease from the pan.
  • Next, add the taco seasonings along with ¼ cup of water and allow it to simmer over medium low heat. Once most of the water has reduced, turn off the heat.
  • Cut your avocados in half and remove the pit. Rub lime juice on the surface to keep them from browning.
  • Generously scoop the taco filling into your avocado halves and add the taco toppings. Sprinkle cotija cheese and top and finish with a squeeze of lime.

  • 7 grams net carbs per avocado half
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
