It’s been awhile since I shared a taco recipe. (Remember Taco Tuesday?) It feels like ions ago that I was churning out taco recipes once a week. It’s not that I haven’t been making tacos- they make an appearance on our dinner table at least once a week- it’s just that I haven’t had a taco recipe that’s gotten me excited enough to share on the blog. And it’s partly because I’ve been lazy…..but whatever. However, these Loaded Guacamole Tacos? Total game changer.

Remember the “cleanse” I told you about last week? Well the hubs and I are still (mostly) doing it. And by mostly I mean we’re staying away from gluten and dairy but the coffee and wine quickly made their way back into our lives. So did the sugar. Oops. And not really intentionally, we’ve been eating less and less meat, chicken and fish while totally digging on mostly vegetarian meals. I’ve been trying to get as creative as I can with the veggies while making sure we’re still leaving the table satisfied and full. These tacos have been one of the best things to come out of my kitchen over the last two weeks.

Guacamole is always my favorite part of any taco ensemble and I swear I always load so much on my tacos that I mask the other flavors with all the avocado goodness. So why not make avocado the main attraction! A guacamole taco? Is that even a thing? If it wasn’t, I’m a genius and if it was, I’m late to the party. Either way I’m just happy these tacos happened onto my dinner plate. While I wasn’t entirely sure how they would turn out, these Loaded Guacamole Tacos totally exceeded my expectations!!

I made so much filling that we ate the tacos for dinner one night and then snacked on the leftovers for a few days after. The base is pretty traditional: cilantro, jalapeño, tomato, onion , lime and salt. But then I got all crazy and added roasted sweet potato- which adds a subtle sweetness and some substance as well as some crumbled feta for a nice salty touch. The pepitas are a must to lend some crunch and texture. And while you could easily not make tacos and just go to town on this guacamole with some tortilla chips or cut up veggies, the tacos are fun twist. While the hubs and I both loved the guac, my kids thought it was a little too weird. Whatever I say….just more for us!

    Your guacamole is exactly the way I love it — chunky! And sweet potatoes are the perfect filling for these tacos. I could eat these every day!

  3. Aww your pup is so cute! I make tacos ALL the time, but now that I’m thinking of it, I haven’t shared a taco recipe in a while either. Maybe I need to fix that ASAP! Guacamole is pretty much my favorite thing ever, so a whole taco filled with guac is right up my alley!

  4. And you made them veggie just for me, right? Love these!

  5. This is worthy of posting for sure! Glad you did, and as far as I know it wasn’t a thing. But maybe I am even later to the party. Either way I am so on board with these!

  6. True story: I always think of you (and my other friend, Kelly!) whenever I make or eat tacos. Guac gives me life. Tacos give me life. Making these as soon as humanly possible. (Probably for lunch tomorrow.)

  7. I could live on tacos and guacamole and sweet potatoes so I love everything about these!!

  8. These look outstanding! I love the heavy-handedness with the avocados. Nice!

  9. Yes! I often times think to myself while eating a taco topped with guac, that I really just want a tortilla stuffed with guac and only guac. Thanks for making that dream come true!!!

  10. Wow, these look insanely delicious! And your puppers is adorable!
