On top of being a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, riboflavin, niacin, folate, magnesium, and potassium, they provide omega-3 fatty acids and beneficial fats. Thank you, avocado, for being healthy as well as so yummy.
While avocados are fantastic all by themselves, there's nothing like stuffing them with even more goodness. Last week I browned a pound of ground beef with taco seasoning to make the base for taco-stuffed avocados.
To put them together, I added even more staple ingredients for Latin food - shredded cheese, salsa, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and a few tortilla chips for scooping up any extra bits at the end of your meal.
What are your favorite toppings and stuffings for avocados?
