Additional serving suggestions;

If, by chance, you don’t think these turkey taco stuffed avocados are your style because you’d be missing the crunch from a traditional taco shell, then why not crunch a few chips over the top to garnish?

This way you still have the crunch you desire, but you’ll also be cutting back on a few of the carbs as well.

Also, why not add some beans for extra fiber and protein? Kidney beans, black beans, or even garbanzo beans would be a great choice!

  3. Avocados are loaded with fiber! Fiber is an important key to weight loss and metabolic health.
  4. They’re packed with powerful antioxidants which can protect eye health.
  5. Avocados may help relieve symptoms of arthritis.

Can these stuffed avocados be made in advance and frozen?

You can surely make the filling in advance, and freeze that if needed. But the avocado halves need to be fresh, not frozen.

Can I substitute ground beef for the ground turkey?

Sure, but be aware that the calorie count and nutrition information (provided in the recipe card) will no longer remain the same.
