Avocado Spread

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

There’s no greater joy than a perfectly ripe avocado. Many of us here at FoodShare love avocados at home and use them in salads, wraps, dips, guacamole, or a simple spread. This avocado spread recipe is straightforward; you only need four accessible ingredients. We used avocados, lime juice, cream cheese, and some spices. Serve it with toasted bread and a soft-boiled egg or as a dip for other dishes. We don’t recommend storing Avocado Spread. It’s best always to make it from scratch. However, if you have any leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to two days. Cover it with plastic wrap, pushing it down with your fingers to ensure it’s in contact with the avocado.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 packet low-sodium taco seasoning (or make your own!)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • Plain Greek yogurt, for topping


  1. Halve and pit avocados. Using a spoon, scoop out a bit of avocado, creating a larger well. Dice removed avocado and set aside to use later. Squeeze lime juice over all avocados (to prevent browning!).
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and taco seasoning, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until the cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any fat.
  3. Fill each avocado half with meat, and top with reserved avocado, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a dollop of yogurt. Scoop out of the shell with a spoon to eat!
