Taco Stuffed Avocados. The perfect low carb taco! These avocados are loaded up with the BEST taco meat, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and a dollop of sour cream. Perfect for an easy lunch or light dinner.

An avocado is the perfect substitute for a taco shell! Not only can you enjoy the taco toppings, but you get to enjoy the avocado and can even scoop some out for a little guacamole!

How To Stuff An Avocado

This is such an easy dish to make. All that’s needed is to slice the avocado in half, remove the pit, use a spoon to scoop out a little of the avocado to create a larger crater. And make sure you save the avocado to make some guacamole!

Then just load up the avocado halves with your taco toppings of choice! Although I recommend following the recipe below for the BEST taco meat made with a homemade taco seasoning. Or you can use these recipes for some Slow cooker sweet barbacoa, Mexican brisket, or carnitas to stuff the avocados with also.

How Many Carbs Are In These Taco Stuffed Avocados?

  1. This was very good!  You can always adjust the seasoning to what you like.  I put the meat in the center of the plate and added toppings but added the avocado around the meat.  Super easy to make.

  2. So how did you and your kids eat them?? I’m seeing the only feasible way as with a fork or spoon but then that kinda takes away from the taco vibe.

    1. Hi Tracee! For my kids I do just give them these on a plate with a spoon and they go to town. The avocado peel almost creates a bowl! So no, we can’t eat them with our hands like a taco, but they’re still tasty!

  3. My husband an I are on the Keto diet. We had these for lunch today and they were so good! Definitely will be having them again…many ties.

  4. How do you eat it with the hub still on there but you dig around in it or what it looks good I’m making it right now but I’m not sure how I’m going to spoon it out or whatever

  5. I loved this! I used taco seasoning and water instead of tomato sauce. I served this with rice and beans for dinner, we love carbs! Great recipe, avocados are the best!

    1. Looking forward to making these for the office. Best suggestion to keep the avocado from browsing til lunchtime?

      1. Wrap them tightly! The browning occurs when air hits the avocado. Wrap them nice and tight with plastic wrap to help prevent air from hitting them.

  6. I love this idea!! I am new to keto, and there is no way I could stick to it if I had to give up tacos! Theses are great and super easy!

  7. These look amazing and perfect for a low carb lifestyle since net carbs in an avocado are super low. High nutrition, low carb and all in a taco, thanks for sharing. Clean fats and fiber.
