Grilled Avocado and Vegetable Tacos Recipe

It is warming up outside and that means our grill is heating up! I love grilling season! Cooking and eating outside is so much fun…and with a house of boys, the clean up is nice too. If they spill, I don’t stress about it. It is also warm enough for them to eat with their shirts off. I know I should be teaching manners at the dinner table, but outside summer eating is different. I am fine letting them eat with their shirts off, mainly because that is less laundry for me to do. I can just hose them off if I need to and their shirts won’t get dirty or stained. It’s a win-win! Especially, because Caleb loves playing in the hose. He probably spills extra so we will hose him off:)

To kick off grilling season, we made Grilled Avocado and Vegetable Tacos. They were a hit with the entire family. I love it when my boys eat their vegetables!

For the vegetables, I used zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, and red onion. You can use whatever veggies you have in your fridge or garden this summer. I toss the veggies with olive oil and Old El Paso’s Taco Seasoning.

When the avocado and veggies are grilled to perfection, I put them in an Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Tortillas. I also add cotija cheese and cilantro. Feel free to add your favorite taco toppings! Go crazy or keep things simple!

Get grilling season started by making Grilled Avocado and Vegetable Tacos. They are simple, fresh, and healthy! I know we will be making these tacos all summer long. I hope they become a summer favorite at your house too!

  1. This looks amazing, simple, and I know it will be something we eat all summer. Thinking I would top it with my homemade tomatillo sauce…and could easily turn these into fish tacos…thank you for the inspiration. Never thought to grill avocados!

  2. I could go for Mexican food all summer long, and I’m the grill man here. Totally agree with the messy kids, we love eating outside for the exact same reason, less cleanup and no gunk jammed under the table.

  3. These look great, but how in the heck are you managing to grill with all this rain we’re having ?!? 😉 Of course, we keep reminding ourselves that this IS the desert, after all, and rain is a GOOD thing! Heading down to Moab tomorrow for a few days camping, though, so hoping for a break in the moisture.

  4. Grilled avocados are the best. I love how when you warm an avocado all the oils and flavor comes out of them. And these tacos – yesss!


  5. Super easy to make and delicious! I love that you can use any veggie combo you want/have. I “grilled” our veggies on a lined skillet on our stove. This is also our first time using these shells and grilling avocado! ♥️
