The Cozy Cook, from whom I adapted this recipe.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1/2 (1.25 oz.) packet taco seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 small onion, diced
- 4 ripe avocados
- 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese (I used half cheddar and half pepper jack)
- 3/4 cup low fat sour cream for topping (optional)
- Cilantro, for a garnish or topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. Cook the ground turkey over medium heat until browned. Drain excess grease. Add 3/4 cup water and stir in taco seasoning and diced onions. Cook until the onions are softened, then turn the heat off.
Slice avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pits and carefully scoop out some of the flesh to make room for the taco filling. Dice the avocado that you scooped out and toss in with the meat mixture along with the diced tomatoes.
Scoop the meat mixture into the Avocado slices and top with cheese. Bake on prepared baking sheet for approximately 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and hot. Serve immediately with diced cilantro and sour cream. Have some chips handy to clean up any spills!
