Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocado, Pico de Gallo, Cheddar

Ingredients: Makes 4 servings

1-1/3 cup Turkey Taco Meat 
1/4 cup Pico de Gallo
4 TBSP Cilantro Lime Sour Cream
2 each Avocado
1-3/4 tsp Canola oil
1/8 tsp Kosher salt
1/8 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Lime juice

  1. Prepare Turkey Taco Meat according to recipe. Hold hot.
  2. Prepare Pico de Gallo and Cilantro Lime Sour Cream according to their recipes. Hold cold.
  3. Cut avocados in half. Discard pits (DO NOT PEEL; leave skin intact). Cut a sliver of the skin off of the bottom of each half so that avocado's sit flat, instead of tilting once they are stuffed.
  4. Mix together oil, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Brush avocados with oil/lime juice mixture. Grill avocado halves on a preheated grill just to mark them.
  5. Fill each avocado half with 1/3-cup turkey taco meat, top with 1 tbsp. cheddar.
  6. Place avocado in 350°F oven to melt cheese and heat taco meat through. Top each stuffed avocado half with 1 tbsp. cilantro sour cream and 2 tsp. Pico de Gallo.
