  • 4 ripe Florida avocados
  • 1 pound Florida ground beef
  • 1 large Florida tomato, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning, plus more to taste
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 limes, quartered
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced small (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup jack cheese, shredded

Preheat a medium skillet over medium–high heat. Add the cooking oil to the preheated pan, then add onions and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until caramelized. Carefully add the ground beef and continue to cook, using a spatula or wooden spoon to break up the ground beef as it cooks completely. Add the taco seasoning and diced tomato, stir and carefully drain any excess fat. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Remove the taco meat from the heat to cool slightly. Use a kitchen knife to carefully cut each avocado in half, removing the large seed in the middle and continue this process for all 4 avocados. Use half of a lime to squeeze juice over each of the cut avocados. Lightly season each cut avocado with more taco seasoning. Evenly add the same amount of taco meat to each avocado half. Garnish each stuffed avocado with shredded cheese, salsa, fresh cilantro, lime quarters and sour cream.
