Black Bean Stuffed Avocados

Great for a simple lunch or healthy snack, these stuffed avocados come together swiftly and are loaded with Tex-Mex flavour! Cumin and fresh veggies keep the avocados healthy and super tasty.
Black Bean Stuffed Avocados {with Vegan Option} | Swirls and Spice Avocados are not something I am fond of eating on their own.  But add some texture and Mexican fair and I love them!  Despite my daughter’s recent addiction to garlic salt on her morning toast, I found enough of it to shake on my stuffed avocado creation–and was it ever good!Black Bean Stuffed Avocados {with Vegan Option} | Swirls and Spice

    1. I think that would work fine. I prefer the higher fat yogurt for richer flavour. You might want to sweeten plain yogurt a tad with a little maple syrup so that it’s more like sour cream.

  1. Welcome to Fiesta Friday…what a wonderful, and creative idea. I’d never thought of stuffed avocados before, and now you have me thinking of all kinds of toppings. So healthy, fresh and flavorful. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Oh wow, those look lovely! Thanks so much for bringing them to the party. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  3. I loooove avocado! All the flavors of your recipe are right on target;) Just had a grain-free lunch consisting of left-over beef, avocado with olive oil/hot sauce, on a bed of lettuce. Also, I had sweet potato chips and a smoothie! Hope you check out my blog for other creative combos..
