I’ve been using a lot of ground beef lately. It is a staple in low-carb diets and cooks fast. You can also season it with seasoning of your choice and serve it the vegetables you like. This Taco Stuffed Avocado is perfect for people, who follow the Keto diet.

Of course you can cook beef and serve it with avocado, cheese and tomatoes on the side, but the idea of avocado boats is so much fun! I’ve also tried stuffing avocado with tuna salad and it tasted awesome!

These low-carb Taco Stuffed Avocado boats hold well and can also be served at a party. The avocado browns prety slowly, because it is covered in stuffing.

These stuffed avocados are a healthy twist on one of my favorite foods – tacos! Now, when I try to avoid tortillas, I can just add the meat and toppings to an avocado boat and call it a meal!

To make these Taco Stuffed Avocado {Keto, Low-Carb}, you’ll need:

  • Ground beef and seasoning. You can use store-bought taco seasoning or use a mix of spices you prefer. I also added some tomato sauce to the beef and it tasted delicious.
  • toppings like cheese, sliced Jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro, sour cream and I also used some small avocado pieces, that I scooped out of the avocados.

This Taco Stuffed Avocado {Keto, Low-Carb} is great for busy people, looking for a quick, less than 30 minute dinner option. Fun for the whole family! Great for a low-carb taco night.

Why scoop out some of the avocado before you fill them? Because this way the avocado boats can hold more taco filling.

You can also mash it and make guacamole out of it, or if you are like me, just chop it and add it on top of the boats.
