Get ready to get your socks knocked off. Yep, a fried avocado taco. As if avocado can get any better, right? Of all of the things I knew you could do with avocado I had never thought of frying it. But everything tastes better fried so why not!?!? And with beer batter? And in a taco? Get. Out. of. Town. YUM!
Ok, here’s how you do it. Easy peasy.
· 2 to 3 firm-ish avocadoes, peeled, seeded and sliced into ¾ inch slices
· 1 cup beer
· 1 cup flour
· 1 teaspoon salt
· Aprox. 4 cups vegetable oil
· Flour or corn tortillas
· Cabbage, thinly sliced
· Grated cheese
· (anything else you want to add – onion, corn, black beans, you name it. Treat this like you would a fish taco)
· Half cup mayonnaise
· ¼ cup sour cream
· 1 teaspoon (or more!) Sriracha sauce/Tapatio/spicy sauce of choice
· 1 lime, squeezed
Combine beer, flour and salt into a medium sized bowl. Heat oil in a deep pan or pot on medium heat (375 degrees) until hot. Roll avocado in beer batter and drop into pan. Rotate once and remove when batter has turned to a golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Combine sauce ingredients while avocados are frying. Assemble. Devour.
