That is exactly what these Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocado Bowls are for us.
It’s no secret. Avocados rock my socks. I love them. Love the fatty and creamy goodness.
It’s like when I began putting chopped avocados into my tomato soup … I realized the addiction was strong.
Rolling with it.
TIP: If you’ve got the extra time I actually love making faux tuna melts with these as well. Top with some swiss cheese and broil on High for about 3-4 minutes. Keep an eye on it to prevent the cheese from burning.
One day I found myself running out of wraps for my buffalo chicken wraps, I substituted the wrap for an avocado. Heaven.
It was delicious with our Taco Avocado Bowls too.
