If you love avocados as much as I do, you are always looking for ways to incorporate this excellent fruit into your weekly menu. Did you get surprised I said Fruit? I can relate to that. For a long time, I refer to avocados as a healthy, delicious vegetable. When I heard about this, I also got surprised, but it makes sense as avocado has a seed. I don’t know about you, but this information does not change the way I feel about avocados. I am certain This Easy Stuffed Avocado Recipe is going to be highlighted in your weekly menu.

  Avocados are not only a delicious fruit, but it’s so versatile. Another fun fact: did you know that you can use avocados for baking? Yes, you can replace the butter and use mashed avocados. I’m very intrigued about that information, so I will bring you a recipe using avocados in my bakings.  In the comment section below, let me know what baking goods you would like to see using avocado as a substitute for butter.  

How to Make These Easy Stuffed Avocado Recipe

The first step to make these Stuffed avocados is to make the ground meat. I decided to use ground beef, but you can certainly use ground turkey. I use a few simple spices, and I can’t leave out the garlic. This ground beef is a straightforward recipe, and the best part is that you can even cook the meat ahead of time. Just place the meat in the microwave for a few minutes to warm it up and have it ready to assemble your avocados. It is also fun to let your loved ones do it themselves with toppings they like. I usually have the pico de gallo at the side, some containers with cheese, jalapenos for some heat, or any other toppings you think they will like. 

 

Easy Stuffed Avocado Recipe with Pico de gallo

As for the avocados, I like them just fresh like that. However, you can bake them for a few minutes or grilled them before stuffing them with the meat and pico de gallo. Either way, you decide to make these avocados will taste amazing. 

How to make the Ground Beef:

In a container, season the ground beef with 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon cumin, ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon oregano, and  1 teaspoon salt.

To prepare the avocados before stuffing them, I remove the pit from the half avocados.  I like to make a few cuts slicing the avocado; this is optional, but I have it very helpful when eating it.
