Avocado Tacos

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

5-10 minutes




About the Recipe



  1. Make Guacamole and set it aside.

  2. Set oven rack in the second position from the top and cut a sheet of tin foil to fit.

  3. Place 4-6 corn tortilla shells on the tin foil and sprinkle liberally with shredded cheese. We like a Cheddar/Monterey Jack mix but use your favorite.

  4. Turn the broiler on and leave the oven door ajar.

  5. Do Not Walk Away <-- This is a warning to the absentminded cook, like me. :P

  6. When the cheese is melted, bubbling, and beginning to brown, pull the shells. The timing of this will depend on your oven. It is usual just a few minutes. My oven cooks the back middle shell the fastest, so I pull them as they begin to turn golden.

  7. Put a generous spoonful of Guacamole in the center and fold over.

  8. You can dip in salsa if you like, but they are perfect as is.

  9. Enjoy!

Other Tips:

  • You can use Flour Tortilla Shells if you prefer them or if that is what you have available. The corn shells add another level of flavor that we enjoy.

  • If you don't have all the ingredients for Guacamole. Sliced Avocados sprinkled with Garlic Salt works great too.

  • Or you can skip the Guacamole and just dip in salsa. Quesadilla-style!
