Avocado is a nutritional powerhouse, full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. This popular green superfood is low in calories and offers an impressive range of nutrients, helping to reduce your risk of health conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, and stroke. Avocado pairs perfectly with tacos to create a Tex-Mex feast that’s healthy for your whole family to enjoy.
To make these tasty tacos start by prepping the ingredients. You will need one ripe avocado, one to two tomatoes chopped, ¼ cup salsa, one ripe onion chopped, 4 ounces grated cheddar cheese, two to three cloves of garlic minced, one ripe tomato chopped, one bell pepper chopped, one-fourth cup of black beans, one-fourth cup of corn, one teaspoon of chili powder, ¼ teaspoon of cumin, ¼ cup of chopped cilantro, and four iceberg lettuce cupboats.
Once all of your ingredients are prepped you can start making your avocado and taco boats. Begin by cutting the avocado in half, removing the pit, and scooping out the flesh. Place the avocado halves in the lettuce cups, and fill the cups with the chopped tomatoes, salsa, onion, garlic, bell pepper, black beans, corn, cheddar cheese, cilantro, chili powder, and cumin.
Then, using a fork, mash the avocado, mixing it with the ingredients in the boats. Once fully combined, divide the mixture between the four cups, piling it high. Once each lettuce cup is filled with the avocado and taco mixture, top each one with a sprinkle of cheese and place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
Finally, once your avocado and taco boats are finished baking, pull them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Add a little extra cilantro on top for some extra flavor and color. And that’s it! You now have a delicious, Tex-Mex feast that’s sure to be a hit with everyone.
