Stuffed Avocados

I was in a bakery the other day, talking to a baker friend as he methodically rolled out dough to form into giant cinnamon rolls.

He set a cloth over the dough, dusted off his hands, and said we should continue talking as he started his lunch break.

I watched him pull out a large ripe avocado and cut it in half, topping it with finely chopped kale and hot sauce.

Then he began to scoop up the avocado and kale as we chatted about dough proofing methods.

I chuckled under my breath.

“What?” he said. “You don’t think I actually eat all this stuff every day.” Gesturing to the baked goods counter.

Of course I didn’t. This particular baker is a fit man with strong forearms from rolling out dough everyday.

It’s a fact, no one can eat delicious carby sweets and pastries all day and be healthy. It’s just not possible.

Yet it got me thinking about ways to improve upon his avocado lunch.

Low Carb Living

This time of year, most of us are eating a bit more thoughtfully than we might have around Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day or Saint Patrick’s Day.

After all, swimsuit season is right around the corner.

In our family, we are eating mainly low carb meals, with a few splurges on the weekends. I am also trying to make sure everyone in the family gets a good dose of raw veggies every single day.

If you are used to eating an All-American diet of classic comfort foods, it can be a little daunting to transition into lower carb meals.

I believe finding a balance between enjoying foods you love, while cleaning them up, is the easiest way to get over the hump.

For instance, in today’s recipe we’re making classic Tex Mex fajitas… Without the tortillas.

The extra fat keeps you full and satisfied much longer the carby tortillas.

Servings: 16 halves

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Peel and chop the onion into ½ inch square pieces. Then seed and chop the bell peppers into ½ inch square pieces.  Chop the cilantro and crumble the queso fresco. Juice one lime. Then cut the other lime into small wedges to use as a garnish.
  • Slice the flank steak into thin strips, against the grain. Then cut each strip into ¾ square pieces.
  • Place a large 14 inch cast iron skillet over high heat. Drizzle avocado oil in the skillet, then add in the flank steak. Sprinkle the steak with Mom’s Favorite Taco Seasoning. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring to brown the pieces on both sides. Then push the steak pieces to the side of the pan and add the onions and peppers to the middle. Sear the vegetables for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir the steak and vegetables together. Pour the juice of one lime over the steak mixture. Add in 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and stir. Them turn off the heat.
  • Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pits. (Do this by tapping a sharp knife into the center of each pit, then twisting it. Knock the pit off the knife blade with the heel of your hand.) Use a spoon to scoop a large hole in the center of each avocado half, creating a deeper crater for the filling. Slice the avocado pieces you remove to use as a garnish.
  • Fill each avocado half with steak fajita filling. Place a few small pieces of sliced avocado on top. Then garnish the tops with queso fresco and cilantro. Serve with a lime wedge.

  1. Can this be made as a meal prep? I’m worried that the steak will get chewy.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I think it makes a great meal prep recipe. I would just eay all the portions within 5 days. Also, squeeze the avocadoes with lime and wrap well, or don’t cut the avocadoes until the day you plan to it.

  2. Stuffed avocados are always a hit around here. I usually fill them with egg salad, but I love this idea too.

  3. Such a delicious idea for dinner! Sure to be a new favorite meal!
