Step 1

Halve avocados, brush with fresh lime juice, sprinkle with sea salt if desired.

Brown meat with the onion in a skillet over medium heat. Once cooked through, drain well.

Add homemade taco seasoning (I add a sprinkle at a time, and taste test until it’s right) and 1 tablespoon hot water.

Simmer for 1-2 minutes until flavors combine.

Scoop hot meat into avocados.

Add toppings to choice, i.e. cheese, salsa/pico, cilantro, fried egg.
