I literally can’t wait to share todays recipe because it has two of my most favorite things in the world: California Avocados and Gourmet Garden herbs.
Let me tell you a little about this love:
I am an ambitious shopper…and what I mean by that is I often think I am going to do a lot more cooking then I actually do in a week. I buy bundles of parsley, cilantro, and lemon grass with big plans to make thai chicken curry soup, black bean burger tacos, and chicken alfredo. Those big plans don’t always come to fruition. Well hello there drive thru! Nice to see you again.
And so…Gourmet Gardens! The lightly dried herbs, and herb pastes are a total crisper drawer saver for me. No more mushy, slimy, disgusting herbs I forgot about, and are now decomposing in plastic bags.
How awesome is that? If you are not using them already, you are missing out big time! I literally use them in pretty much every recipe I put on here.
You can find them in the fresh produce section, usually by the herbs, go figure, or the mushrooms!
Anyway, when you combine the deliciousness of herbs with creamy, tasty, and flavorful California Avocados, you have a winning combination. CA avocados are the best. I mean, I usually make them into guac, or a dressing, but this is my new favorite way to use avocados.
I wanted a taco, but wanted a lighter version. I skipped the shell in favor of the CA avocado, and went with ground turkey instead of beef.
Ah-flipping-mazing! Seriously, this recipe it is our new #tacotuesday go to. All the flavor of your favorite taco, but even yummier. And uh, so quick and easy to make.
Have I mentioned I am obsessed with avocados?
You will be too, once you try these.
