Print Friendly, PDF & Email

No tortillas? No problem. Stuff your tacos into your favorite Mexican food topping…an 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!
