Fried Avocado Taco

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.
Taco Ingredients:
·         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)

Sauce Ingredients
·         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.


  1. Shut the Avacado-green front door! Fantastic idea ... I'm adding cilantro to this beautiful creation. ;o)

    1. Dee Dee, that's a great idea! I should have thought of that. It definitley needed a little extra kick of flavor and cilantro would be perfect. Also, you made me laugh out loud!

  2. Holy shit. Fried avocado taco. Holy shit.

  3. I had fried avocado tacos for the first time when we were in Austin in January and they’re amazing! It never even crossed my mind to try to make them at home. Amber, you’re a genius! My socks are knocked off and my mouth is seriously watering!
