Avocado stuffed with taco meat and toppings.

It’s no surprise that we love tacos around here!

After all, we’ve already shared recipes for our keto taco soup, taco stuffed peppers, and our famous taco pizza recipe!

This time around we’re keeping it simple! All of the usual taco ingredients, but we’re skipping the tortilla and using a hollowed out avocado instead!

You’ll definitely want to use that scooped out avocado to make our keto guacamole!

I love these because I can also heat up some tortillas for the family so they can enjoy taco night their way and I don’t feel like I’m missing out! Plus, I’m all about any recipe that gives me permission to eat avocados with a fork. I love those things!

Ingredient Notes:

Ingredients for taco stuffed avocados.

Avocado – You’ll need four large, ripe avocados. See tip below for more info on avocados and ripeness!

Ground Beef – We love tacos with lots of seasoned ground beef so that’s what we’re using. You could also use a different type of ground meat like chicken or turkey or even our Mexican shredded beef.

Keto Taco SeasoningFollow the link to see my homemade Keto taco seasoning recipe! It’s just what you need to season up all your taco recipes, including this one!

Toppings – We like shredded cheddar, lettuce, diced tomato, black olives, and sour cream with these taco stuffed avocados but you can use whatever you’d like.

Why We Love This Recipe:
  • The avocado that you scoop out can be sprinkled on top or you can mash it up and make guac! We’re happy anytime there’s the opportunity for guac!
  • This recipe is perfect for feeding non-low carb people too! Just set out some tortillas and let them choose how they want to build their taco.
  • Trying to feed a crowd? Stuff as many avocados as you like and set them out for people to dig in! Almost like a low carb version of walking tacos!

How To Make Stuffed Avocado:

  • Beef – Brown the ground beef, drain off any excess fat, and then season it with taco seasoning.
  • Avocado – To prepare the avocado slice them in half and remove the pit. Hollow out the avocado halves with a spoon leaving a small amount over the skin. Take the avocado you scraped out and dice it into small pieces to top your tacos or use it to make guacamole!
  • Fill – Spoon the beef mixture into each avocado shell.
  • Top –  Sprinkle on your favorite taco toppings, like cheese, lettuce, tomato, and olives.
Helpful Tip!

Avocados can be tricky in terms of their ripeness. You don’t want them overly ripe and too soft so make sure they’re stored in the fridge if they start softening before you have a chance to make this recipe. If they’re too hard, a neat trick is to store them next to some bananas! They’ll help ripen the avocado faster.
