Crispy Baked Avocado Tacos

Creamy, decadent avocado in a lettuce boat and topped with pico de gallo and Sriracha aioli

Fresh & Indulgent tasting!

These tacos are one of my favorites… such a great combo!  The avocado is oven-fried, resulting in crunchy breading and creamy, decadent avocado. Served in a lettuce boat with pico de gallo and spicy Sriracha aioli, it has a freshness and a bit of a kick. Indulgent tasting and totally satisfying but still fresh and light.

Crispy avocados adapted from an Eating Well recipe, they are super easy to make and beyond delicious.  The Sriracha aioli is a long time favorite and can be made as spicy as you like.  Pico de gallo can be store-bought or easy recipe below.

Best part is, the entire meal can be made ahead and heated up as needed.
