Avocados contains the good kind of fat. Scoop out the seed and fill it like a taco for a tasty and filling meal anytime.
Preparation time: 20 mins
What you need:
2 avocados halved
½ minced meat (I used beef)
1 tsp oil
Seasonings – Dash of oregano, black pepper, salt to taste, my fresh seasoning blend of cilantro, green onions and garlic (packaged dried seasonings will do)
4 tbs tomato or pasta sauce
1 tbs lemon juice
¾ c grated cheese
1 medium tomato cubed
½ cup salad mix (or plain lettuce)
1 sprig green onion chopped
Sour cream (optional)
What you do:
1. Saute beef in oil in pan on medium heat. Add lemon juice and cook until all pink colour is gone.
2. Drain any excess grease from the meat then add the seasonings, tomato sauce, and salt to taste. Stir, and let cook for about 5 more minutes.
3. Cut avocados in half and remove the seed by spearing it with a sharp knife. Peel off skin or leave it in.
4. Fill the hollow in the avocado halves with the meat, them layer with tomatoes, salad mix/lettuce and cheese.
I made this for our wedding anniversary prior to leaving for the day. My husband’s plate (below left) was decorative but everything was spilling from mine so I simply sprinkled the layers and it was just as delicious. And it looked great too. It’s a foolproof winner for sure!
