Grilled Pulled Pork Tex Mex Stuffed Avocados Recipe

Meghan Yager | Cake 'n Knife Updated

Grilled Pulled Pork Tex Mex Stuffed Avocados are a fun way to get your grill on without getting too unhealthy. With a kiss from the grill, the avocados get a little char before being stuffed with saucy pulled pork, peppers and an avocado crema.

I have the hardest time figure out good lunches these days.

I used to have a system, where I would eat basically the same thing for lunch (some sort of grilled cheese) every day with a varying side of fruit and vegetables. Of course, this routine got old really quick.

Then I devolved to simply devouring leftovers from all my cooking adventures, and while this was delicious, it left me without dinner and a whole new dilemma of cooking for me (plus one).

Discovering grilled avocados was the best moment of the last couple of weeks. I had grilled avocado with some grilled chicken at a local restaurant, and wowza.

The grilled avocado just popped off the plate and the creamy, charred goodness enhanced everything I love about the avocado.

Stuffed avocados haven’t truly been on my radar before, but now that I know the magic of grilled avocados, they are right smack dab in the lunch bulls eye for me.

If you have leftover pulled pork, this lunch is the ideal candidate for the summer months. Simply grill off an avocado, stuff it with pulled pork, peppers and a little seasoning, finishing it off with a drizzle of creamy avocado crema (yes, avocado on avocado IS a match made in heaven).
