AVOCADO TACO BOATS
Yield: 6 servings
Serving Size: 1 avocado boat (1/2 avocado)
Ingredients:
3 ripe avocados 
1 teaspoon olive or avocado oil 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
1/3 cup yellow onion, diced 
1 red bell pepper, diced 
1 pound 8% fat ground turkey 
1/2 cup salsa 
Juice of 1 lime 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
Salt & pepper to taste 
2 green onion, chopped 
Sriracha to taste 
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
Guacamole Topper:
Reserved avocado flesh 
2 tablespoons salsa 
1 green onion, chopped 
1 teaspoon lime juice 
Salt & pepper to taste
Method:
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and then add the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute before adding the onion, and stir both together for 3 minutes.
Add the bell pepper and saute for 1 minute, then add the ground turkey and brown on all sides (about 5 minutes). Stir in the salsa, lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook until turkey is no longer pink inside.
Remove from heat, stir in half of the green onion and set aside.
Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit in each. Set the avocado halves in a baking dish. Scoop out a little flesh from each avocado and place into a bowl. Spoon turkey mixture into each avocado and pack down a bit. Sprinkle the tops with remaining green onion and bake for 12 minutes.
While the boats are baking, add the guacamole topper ingredients to the bowl with the reserved avocado flesh and mash.
Top each boat with 1-2 tablespoons of the guacamole (you may have some left over), drizzle with Sriracha and sprinkle with cilantro.
