  • 1 ½ to 2 lb ground beef
  • 4 avocados ripe and halved
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt I use kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • Topping: Pico de Gallo


  • The first step to making these Stuffed Avocados is to season 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.
  • Drain any excess grease, add 1/2 cup of tomato sauce and stir to combine—Cook for about 3-5 minutes. 

Now the ground meat is ready; we can start stuffing our avocados :)

  • 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.

How to assemble the Avocados:

  • Place a few spoons of the ground beef on top, and place the stuffed avocados on a serving plate.
  • Top with some Pico de gallo and other toppings you like. Some of my family members like to top them with some cheese and hot sauce. To give you a few ideas!
  • Make sure to look at my Pico de gallo recipe to complete this fantastic dish. Just click the link to get the simple recipe :)


  •  To make these Stuffed avocados is to make the ground meat. I decided to use ground beef, but you can certainly use ground turkey.
  •  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. 
  • 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.
