Tacos are a fan favourite in my house, especially with the kiddies – it’s one of those go-to meals we can make ahead of time or as a last-minute dish that always satisfies that hangry feeling.

With Cinco de Mayo quickly approaching, it’s also the perfect recipe to capture the flavours of the holiday. Whether you’re planning a fiesta-style celebration or just want an excuse to enjoy tequila and tacos, this nutritious avocado recipe will get you Cinco de Mayo-ready in no time!


  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
  • 1 package of taco seasoning mix
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) water

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) crumbled queso fresco cheese
  • lime wedges
  • Topping Ideas: shredded lettuce, sliced radishes, diced tomato, sour cream, fresh cilantro leaves

In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook the beef over medium heat for 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Next, stir in taco seasoning mix, water and green chilies.

Cook 30 to 60 seconds longer or until liquid is absorbed.
