The Keto Avocado Taco Boats are the perfect way to level up your low carb Taco Tuesday Routine. They are fresh, light, and fun!
Switch up your Taco Tuesday
This is the keto taco you've been waiting for -- we're swapping out tortillas for avocado boats! This recipe is more of a keto taco salad. The presentation is so beautiful: perfectly cooked ground beef seasoned with homemade taco seasoning, nestled on top of chilled shredded lettuce, topped with cheese, salsa, sour cream, tomato, jalapeño, and avocado, all served in an avocado boat. What's not to love?
How do I know if an avocado is ripe?
If you're not sure how to pick the perfect avocado, it's pretty simple: go by touch. Pick up a ripe looking avocado (with a darker skin) and hold it with your fingertips. Gently apply pressure, don't squeeze. If an avocado is ripe, it'll have a little give to it. If it's overripe, it'll feel mushy.
Another tip for picking a good avocado: go for the more pair shaped options. Rounder avocados usually have a large seed in them, and more seed = less avocado. Pear shaped avocados usually have a smaller seed -- look for an avocado that is smaller at the top and thicker at the bottom.
The key to Keto Mexican Food recipes
Mexican food is easy to make keto -- just ditch the tortillas, rice, and beans, and load up on the proteins. If you're not into ground beef recipes, you could swap out beef for ground chicken, turkey, pork, or a combination. Let's be honest here: this is an avocado recipe ... the avocado is the real star of the show. There are about a million different ways to make Keto tacos, and I think all million of them are delicious.
