  • Cook time: 5 mins
  • Total time: 15 mins
  • Serves 4


  • 1 pound ground beef, turkey, or your favorite meat substitute
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 ounces tomato sauce
  • 3 California avocados halved
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes sliced
  • ¼ cup lettuce shredded

Additional toppings:

  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro
  • Sour cream
  • Olives

If using beef, add ground beef to a medium-size saucepan. Cook over medium heat until browned.

Drain the grease and add the seasonings and the tomato sauce. Stir to combine. Cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Adjust for other protein options.

Remove the pit from the halved avocados and scoop out a spoonful of avocado and set aside for guacamole (see our easy recipe for guacamole!), leaving a good layer of avocado in the shell.

Fill the avocado half with taco meat/protein. Top with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro, sour cream, and guacamole. Delish!
