We love taco nights in my house, and Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps and Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats are favorites in my home! But swapping the lettuce or zucchini for avocado? Even BETTER! You’ll need to eat them with a spoon eat up every last bite. This whole meal is ready in under 30 minutes.

These taco stuffed avocados are actually going on our dinner rotation this week. It’s a win, win because we all love my taco meat recipe, and we love avocados. And, since we over-indulged over the holidays we are cutting back on the carbs. Of course, avocados are loaded with good-for-you fats so they are much healthier than serving on a taco shell. And the portions are really filling, I couldn’t even finish the two.

For my daughter Madison, I’ll make hers on either flour or corn tortillas, or maybe even tostada shells.

Tips and Variations:

  • Look for smaller haas avocados that usually come 4 in a pack. Those typically yield 4 ounces of avocado once you remove the skin and pit.
  • The pit has a small well once removed, so I spoon a bigger opening to allow more filling in each, and simply take the extra and spoon it on top.
  • If you want to try this with chicken, this crock pot salsa chicken works great.
  • Don’t like turkey? Swap it for ground beef or chicken instead.

To Meal Prep

To Make this for meal prep, make the turkey ahead and refrigerate up to 4 days. If prepping for lunch, divide the remaining ingredients in small containers and heat the turkey separate. Cut the avocado just before you’re ready to eat. The avocado should be room temp and the taco meat should be warm.

Taco meat can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

  1. Very good, really good! I ramped up the veggies by adding some chopped fresh spinach to the turkey saute and added some spicy salsa verde and chipolte sauce to the yogurt dressing… we like more heat! I’ll keep this recipe as a favorite–and a great way to use ripe avocados…they all seem to get ripe at the same time!

  2. This recipe is a delicious life saver! It’s a favorite of ours & ive made it several times.. Can never get a photo as they are quickly devoured!!

  3. Excellent, we had fun eating them and they were super tasty, easy, and quick to make. Didn’t make any changes. They are way more filling than I thought they’d be, too. 

  4. How many count as a serving? 

  5. I love this recipe!! I sub the turkey for extra lean beef and add lemon juice and a lot of pepper. This is my first comment after 2 months of following your recipes. This is my favorite one!
