Avocado Tacos Reviews

  • I loved this recipe, even my strictly carnivorous boyfriend enjoyed it. I brush the outside of the tortillas with a olive oil-lime juice mixture before throwing them in the oven and left them there for a little longer than the recipe called for. I garnished the tacos with some pico de gallo, chili peppers and sour cream.

  • This is a good idea, but its a little boring as is. Its not much more than guacamole in a tortilla. I love avocados and eat them plain all the time, but if theyre in a taco, Id like to have other ingredients, such as tomato, lettuce, and maybe some black beans.

  • I thought this recipe was bland, but fun to play with. I added some shredded cheese to the tortillas and then warmed them. I added some chopped onion and tomato, and lemon juice to the avacado mixture. I also serve them with mexican rice. my hubby, and 16 month old love them, and so do I

  • While everyone else was eating their beef tacos, I was thoroughly enjoying the avacado version. Im addicted to avacados and thought these were terrific. I used green onions, a can of mild green chiles and topped it with shredded cheddar. Delicious and thanks Karyn

  • My husband and I love these tacos I had some plain, with just the avocado mixture and I had some with stir-fry steak strips, just 2-3 strips per taco, and less than 1/2 pound if steak altogether. I also added more like 1/2 cup of onion. Very tasty

  • This recipe is so light and perfect for a warm summer night. I would definitely make sure to use the jalapeno pepper sauce, it brings out all of the flavors wonderfully, but without it, the dish is very plain. However, I gave this 4 stars(which it really was a border line 3-4, but since i personally liked it, i bumped it up to 4)because my family wasnt very impressed. My husband felt that there was something missing, and didnt think that guacamole smeared on top of corn tortillas with a little sauce, was a gerat meal idea. I could definatley see his point. Although I had no qualms making a meal of it, my girls hardly touched it. I really cant see myself making an entree out of this dish either, mainly because I think the key to this dish being successful is completely reliant on who youre serving it to. If you love avacado and are perfectly happy with a simple, light dish, than I would recommend it.

  • This recipe seemed a little bland. I added chopped tomato, olives, and green chiles. It came out really good. My daughter & mom enjoyed it.

  • All things considered, with modification, this could be much better. sorry - i just wasnt impressed, and as a vegetarian married to a carnivore, im always on the lookout for things i can make for myself when i cook up tacos.

  • Oh yum. I LOVE avocados This was perfect for my vegian taco fiesta tonight. I have a house full of kids & hubbys out bowling, so we went to town on these babys Thanks Karen

  • Wonderful recipe I made it for dinner with thoughts of sharing, but I am glad that my DH had other things to eat Thank you for sharing.

  • This recipe has fast become a favorite of ours, I have made it 3 times now since I found on the site. I have utilized some of the tips from other members. I add lime juice, garlic powder, cumin and 1/2 can of mild chili peppers to the avocado and the other 1/2 of can to vegetarian refried beans. I heat the shells over a flame on the stove, then stack like a taco with beans, avocado mix, fresh cilantro, tomatoes, onions, black olives, lettuce and ranch dressing or hot sauce. My husband asks for these weekly Quite a suprise since his first response was very questionable. Easy to make for a quick and easy dinner

  • This is a nice starter for a recipe, but for me not complete. I followed the recipe (minus the jalapenos) but then added tomatoes, cheddar cheese, black beans and some fresh squeezed lime. With the additions to it, I thought it was great.

  • Avocadoes are so inexpensive this time of year, this recipe was just what I was looking for. I thought it was tasty...added some black beans and corn for substance- thanks =)

  • Wow, this was great We just finished dinner, and I had to write a review. My husband, a meat and potato kind of guy, really enjoyed this I did make a few adjustments. After reading some reviews I used pinto beans, I added garlic salt to the beans instead of the tacos. I also used green onion, instead regular onion. I chopped the avocado, I think next time I will mash some of it. We also squeezed a slice of lime over the top of the taco. Oh, and after reading one review, I took olive oil, about 1/3 cup, and the juice of one lime, and a half teaspoon of salt and mixed it together, then brushed that over the tortillas and warmed them in a cast iron skillet. This could also be done in the oven. They were not greasy, but they were soft and had wonderful flavor. I will definitely be making this again We served fresh watermellon with it, and it was a wonderful cool dinner on a hot day.

  • The "KIDS" just love this recipe What "Kids" is the question you ask??? Well not the ones you are expecting, but the ones you are not, like the bigger oness( husbands) or the ones who are kitchen challenged

  • Really delicious--a nice vegetarian alternative to tacos with meat filing. The fresh cilantro is really the key to this. I added a bit of chopped tomato to the avacado mixture and it turned out great

  • I thought this was awesome. As a new vegetarian, it was so filling and I didnt miss the taco meat at all The avocado mixture was delicious. I coarsely chopped romaine lettuce and made pico de gallo with tomatoes, red onion and cilantro and black beans with garlic salt. I made it look just like the picture- even though that was not in the recipe. DELICIOUS Your family will love it too

  • I made it as is and felt it just wasnt very flavorful, so I added black beans and diced tomatoes and lightly fried the corn tortillas in olive oil and it was much better

  • I give it 5 stars for the idea; however it was the picture that grabbed my attention, which is nothing like the recipe. The picture shows black beans and tomatoes, ingredients that arent called for. So, I created my own veggie tacos and they were insane. Topped it off with cilantro lime dressing and even my meat-eating husband liked it. So thanks for the idea

  • This was delicious I laughed at first when I saw the recipe and thought, big deal a tortilla topped with guacamole minus the tomatoes. However, it tasted great I scaled it down to about 2 servings. I used 1 large Natures Promise brand tortilla, 1 mashed avacado with the garlic salt, about 1 Tblsp. of "minced" onion, and the cilantro garnish. I didnt add the jalapeno sauce at the end. I also didnt see the point of heating up the oven to warm 1 tortilla so I microwaved it until lightly warm. It really didnt need any other ingredients either. It reminded me of the guacamole on the cheese quesadillas at some Mexican restaurants. Simple but flavorful.

  • This was really, really good. I had some leftover Cilantro Tomato Corn Salad (from this site-a good pico) and added that on top along with some cheese. Excelent

  • I love avocados, but this is pretty boring. I have ordered guacamole tacos at our local taqueria but they throw in cabbage, pico de gallo, and queso fresco. If I try this again, Id definitely add to it.

  • This recipe sounded a little bland, but it was delic I split the call for garlic between garlic salt and garlic powder, used quite a bit more jalapeno sauce, and topped with shredded cabbage. Will definately make this again- so quick, easy, and tasty.

  • Much to our surprise, no one missed the meat We added some chile lime refried beans and cheese, they were excellent

  • Yummy I fried my corn tortillas in a little oil instead of baking to make it more tostada like, and didnt have the jalapeno sauce so I used some habanero tabasco I had. Delicious and simple

  • These were yummy and a great alternative to the basic taco. I fried my corn tortillas for a minute on each side and I cooked some black beans and onion with a little cumin. I put the beans, avocado, tomato, cheese, cilantro and some spinach on each tortilla and baked for about 5 minutes, just long enough to warm it all up. I will definitely make this again, maybe add more spices to zip it up a bit.

  • I have to agree with other that this recipe is rather...basic. I didnt feel like going the healthy route by heating them in the oven. Rather, I deep fried those suckers ( the corn tortillas) to get them crispy. I also added canned (rinsed and drained too) black beans, lettuce, and diary-free mozzerella cheese substitute (Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet- which is available at Whole Foods and Trader Joes). My non veg husband helped himself to 4 of them We thought this was a great base recipe to give us endless possibilities.

  • I added salsa and black beans. Awesome I really like this recipe. Will definitely be making this again.

  • I am only a mild fan of avocados, but this recipe has left me with cravings for more and more and more Yum a licious

  • Pretty plain and why doesnt the picture match the ingredients? Black beans and tomatoes..? Ok as is for an appetize,r but with beans and a few other typical taco veggies, plus cheese, sour cream and lime juice makes a lovely meal.

  • These were great, but you cant have just avocados and onions on tortillas all by itself. It isnt even guacamole unless you add the tomato I added tomato to mine and then warm refried beans which made it excellent

  • Yummy meatless tacos I love the hint to warm the corn tortillas in the oven. I thought the only way to get them not to tear was to give them a quick dip in hot oil. I will be using corn tortillas more from now on.

  • These were delicious very suprised and impressed. i added just a lil beans to them MMMMMMM

  • Yummy. I added fresh lime juice and chopped tomatoes. Thanks :)

  • Delicious I ommitted the jalapeno sauce, and dressed up the tacos with tomatoes, lettuce, and black beans. Super delicious...

  • I made this for a dinner party and it was a hit. I added black beans and chopped tomatoes and it was great.

  • YUM We LOVED these. The taco filling itself is also an excellent guacamole.

  • Good recipe, but too much like guacamole. I added a little lime juice and tomato to the tacos as well. Instead of making the the tacos filled with the avocado spread alone, I did a 50/50 mix where I made half like a guacamole dip and then kept the other half of the avocados sliced and not mashed to give a little more consistency to the taco. My fiance is a meat-eater, so he appreciated the sliced avocado, making it seem like he was eating something more "hearty"

  • This is a lovely, quick, and easy dinner. I had some peach-mango salsa on hand, which complemented the flavors of the recipe nicely.

  • Delicious I added a little lime juice and left out the cilantro and both my husband and I loved them. Definitely something Id make again.


  • I really loved this simple dish. You could add jalapenos to it to give it a kick. I added a dash of rooster sauce and it was perfect. This is a great vegetarian find.

  • This dish needs something extra. Throw in some leftover chicken, refried beans, or tomatoes to liven it up. A great dish to have on hand for the vegetarian at your next taco dinner.

  • I love mexican food and this was a perfect taco in my opinion

  • Nice and Simple

  • I loved these. Avocados are one of my fave foods. I only had about 5 minutes to throw dinner together and these were perfect. I didnt have time to chop an onion (and Im not a big fan of raw onions anyway) so I used a sprinkle of dry onion flakes. I did use the cilantro and sprinkled the hot sauce right into the avocado mixture. I lightly fried some chipotle tortillas in a little canola oil insted of using corn tortillas. Served with shredded cheddar, chopped tomatoes, and nice crunchy romaine. I really enjoyed this meal.

  • If you add grill chicken to this recipe it takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness.

  • We really enjoyed this recipe I used canned seasoned black beans; cubed, not mashed, avocados, diced tomatoes, cilantro, and sour cream. Very basic, but a great combination of flavors. Definitely a new favorite

  • I added a little Rotel and lime juice, exed the cilantro only because we didnt have any. Made beans and rice for the topper and grated some cheese. Everyone really liked it

  • I made these last night. I followed some of the suggestions and made a few substitutions to the recipe. For seasoning I added cumin and chilli powder, and heated the tortillas in a frying pan coated with cooking spray. These came out yummy.

  • Back when I was eating meat, tacos were one of my favorite dinners. Now that Im a vegetarian, Ive been looking for a suitable replacement, and found that here I did make some changes to the recipe. I sliced the avocado instead of mashing it, sliced the onion instead of dicing, and added diced tomatoes, jalapenos, and shredded monteray jack cheese. I also left out the garlic salt. The resulting dish is now my FAVORITE summertime meal This recipe is a great base and very versatile, so its easy to change each time you make it (sometimes, depending on my mood, I also add some black beans or refried beans). Definitely recommend for any vegetarians

  • These tacos are a great idea, and excellent in theory, but it didnt translate well to my tastebuds. Meaning, I wasnt THAT impressed with the actual recipe. But I WOULD recommend starting with warm corn tortillas, slathering with your FAVORITE guac recipe, then adding all your favorite taco toppings. Enjoy with a nice cold margarita :)

  • Just couldnt believe how something so easy to make could be so GOOD My grandkids loved them & I make them often for myself when I am in a hurry & hungryThanks Karyn.

  • Awesome. I took the advice of other reviews and made them my own. I added a little Joe T Garcias salsa and some leftover Spicy Black Bean Salad. This took 5 minutes from beginning to end...mmmm.

  • Pretty good-it is like guacamole as taco filling so I added some Mexican cheese to make it more filling and I may add some beans or something next time. As is, I think it makes a better snack than meal. Very tasty though-thanks

  • It was delicious. Couple of my friends came over and we made it together. Easy and fast. Given we added to it too.

  • These were fantastic I added black beans and montery Jack cheese.

  • I thought this was excellent I followed the recipes as stated, and added about 1/4 to 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lime to the avacado mixture. I also had some baby spinach on the side to put on the taco as well. What I am going to try next time is add some corn to the mixture and maybe some red pepper. I was really surprised at how filling this was.

  • This is basically a taco with guacamole as the filling. Its quite good as a very light lunch or snack but it doesnt have a lot of heft...the flavors are quite good but If you want this as a meal I would recommend adding some black beans to make it more filling. Thanks for sharing

  • This was pretty bland, make sure you use really ripe avocados to maximize the flavor. I still give it 4 stars though, just because avocados are so darn good

  • I added chicken to mine.

  • As is, I would rate the recipe four stars - but it does make a great base recipe to adjust to individual taste. I made these for lunch today with a blend of tomato and onion (basically a pico de gallo once the cilantro was mixed in), with some garlic powder and salt. Definitely a keeper of a recipe for its flexibility. Yum

  • Made it about 5 times now, the fam loves it

  • Easy, yummy, everyone will love em

  • I only give this 2 stars because I added black beans and yellow rice, which make it worth eating. This was so bland and the Corn Tortillas overpowered the mild flavors. I ended up just mixing everything together minus the tortillas and had myself a yellow rice/black bean salad.

  • Firstly, Id like to say that this recipe has a lot of potential. I followed the recipe exactly when making the avocado mixture, and its definitely not bad. Its pretty much guacamole, and while its on the plainer side, its still enjoyable. After trying it as is, I added hot sauce, tomato, & lime juice. I couldnt really get behind having tacos with only guac for filling, and I knew that going into this, so I made a corn, spinach, yellow squash, onion, and black bean fajita mixture and used that & some cheese to accompany the avocado mixture. Really delicious

  • I loved the avocado did my kidsI added black beans and tomatoes.

  • This recipe is okay as a base. As a full recipe, its a bit dull for my taste, basically a mild guacamole in a corn tortilla. After trying the recipe exactly as written, I made it again but added roasted corn and black beans, along with some Jack cheese. Keeps the recipe healthy and easy while adding some flavor and texture.

  • My husband & I are vegetarian....i personally loved these tacos for a meal. Hubby thinks theyre more appropriate as an appetizer. We set these up as a taco bar w/ black beans, corn & all the fixings, everyone can make their own tacos the way the like. Only rule: NO MEAT ALLOWED

  • Yuck I guess its not what I expected. The flavors are very mild. Its under seasoned.

  • I am trying to eat less meat and these were actually AWESOME. My husband the carnivore really truely loved them he asked for more.. YEAHHH

  • The cilantro was good with it, but other than that they are a little too bland for me. I didnt have jalapeno pepper sauce (maybe that was the problem) so I tried hot sauce.

  • Great vegetarian meal and is a huge success.

  • Easy and good, kinda like guacamole and baked chips.

  • Not horrible - bland Not sure exactly what is missing. Its just not for me.

  • Great base for tacos.

  • Great tacos I added some of my favirate veggies, like organic baby spinich, red, whit and green pepers, and some garlic pepper and it was great yum

  • Yum I added a tomato and squeezed a lime into the mixture. Also, I skipped on heating the tortillas. Delicious and very refreshing.

  • This is a wonderful vegetarian recipe--I added black beans, sliced tomatoes, and peppers, and didnt miss the meat or cheese

  • Quick and easy with three of my favorites, avocado, cilantro and onions. Thank you VALKARYN.

  • Really enjoyable. Try it with the cheddar and maybe some salsa sauce.

  • My 2 year old ate them. that is saying a lot. she eats nothing.

  • Love this recipe My husband and I are eating these weekly Thanks for sharing

  • Simple and tasty. I omitted the onion and seasoned the mashed avocado with various Mexican spices, salt, pepper, half a teaspoon of chicken bouillon and added 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (although lime juice might work better.) Great vegetarian dish, but probably would have tasted even better with shredded chicken.

  • Greay as a side disch. Next time I will top with refired beans. Thanks

  • I would give it 10 stars if I could This is awesome My entire family loved it. We even shared it with my cousins family and it is a hit with that family as well. Even with a three year old We add black beans to the avacado mixture, put tomatoes on top with a smidge of cheese, put back in the oven for 3-5 min. or until the cheese is melted. Excellent Recommended for sure :)

  • YUMMY My family absolutely loved these. The best part is that they are super quick and easy.

  • I added sea salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder, and put fresh corn cut off of the cob on top. Yum

  • Aok

  • Very good recipe. Added lettuce, green onions and tomatoes and skipped the jalapeno sauce(for health reasons).

  • This recipe served as a great starting point for my girlfriend and I to elaborate on. We added shrimp that we cooked with garlic, butter, red onion, chili powder and lemon. Then, for the pico de gallo, we used tomatoes, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, lemon, garlic salt and pepper. And last, we warmed up a can of black beans and put corn tortillas in the toaster oven. Splashes of Tapatio filled in a very nice part of the palate. Cheese was a great topper as well.

  • I made these when my family came over for mothers day and they were a huge hit, even with people that dont like avocado

  • So easy and very fresh and light

  • Delicious

  • Black Beans are a must Delicious. Addictive. Healthy.

  • This was a tasty vegetarian alternative to regular beef or chicken tacos.

  • This was really simply and delicious Avocados are one of my absolute favorite foods, so this really hit the spot for my hubby and me. I added black beans and sharp white cheddar cheese. Thank you for sharing This will be a regular for us.

  • Kind of average, but I liked how easy and quick they were to make. I had to serve several different guests so I made the avocado spread sans onions, and instead put out small dishes of various toppings for my guests to custom make their tacos - bell peppers, onions, black beans, cilantro, cheese, hot sauce... It went great with the Hot Corn Dip recipe. Some even put the dip on the tacos

  • A no brainer really. So simple- Just like regular tacos make additions/subs according to your taste.
