Fried Avocado Tacos with Tomatillo Avocado Sauce (Grain-Free)


I picked up some tomatillos for the first time at the farmers market and was inspired to make these avocado tacos and sauce. Such a fun spin on tacos that is so delicious!

For the Tacos:


1 TB + 2 tsp avocado oil

1 bell pepper, sliced

1 onion, sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 eggs

1 avocado (firm, but ripe), cut into 8 wedges

4 tortillas (I use these grain-free tortillas)


Heat 2 tsp avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté pepper and onion until soft. Salt to taste. Set aside. For the fried avocados, whisk eggs in a bowl, and combine almond flour and 1/2 tsp of sea salt in a separate bowl. Dip each avocado wedge in the eggs and then in the almond flour. Set on plate. Heat 1 TB avocado oil over medium heat. Fry the avocado wedges for 3-4 minutes total, carefully turning one time. Assemble tacos with peppers, onions, and avocados. Top with cherry tomatoes and tomatillo avocado sauce. 

For the Sauce:


3 tomatillos, husked

1 avocado

1/4 cup sour cream

1 jalapeno, seeds removed

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt 


Fill a saucepan with about 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Add tomatillos to pan, reduce heat and cover. Cook for approx, 5 minutes. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
