avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
12 (6 inch)
fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
jalapeno pepper sauce, to taste
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 it's a little boring as is. It's not much more than guacamole in a tortilla. I love avocados and eat them plain all the time, but if they're in a taco, I'd 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. I'm 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!
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 wasn't very impressed. My husband felt that there was something missing, and didn't 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 can't 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 you're serving it to. If you love avacado and are perfectly happy with a simple, light dish, than I would recommend it.
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 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 wasn't impressed, and as a vegetarian married to a carnivore, i'm always on the lookout for things i can make for myself when i cook up tacos.
