A Taste of Mexico

I recently had the pleasure of dining at one of my favorite taco restaurants in Mexico. It may not look like much, with its long lines and crowded tables, but the food is absolutely amazing. While I was enjoying my own delicious meal, I couldn’t help but notice the guy sitting next to me. He had ordered an al pastor-stuffed avocado that looked absolutely divine. The combination of tender al pastor, creamy avocado, and a layer of fried cheese was simply irresistible.

The Recipe

Here’s how to make these delectable avocado tacos:

  1. Halve the avocados, remove the pit, and scoop out a bit more flesh to make room for the taco filling.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned. Crumble it as it cooks.
  3. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef, add water, and stir to combine. Cook for a few more minutes.
