    Today is my wife's birthday. She requested Avocado Taco's. I did some research and put this together.

    PANKO AVOCADOS

    Ingredients
    • 2 large ripe avocados
    • 2 Tbsp olive or avocado oil
    • 2 Tbsp plain, unsweetened almond milk
    • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs (gluten-free for GF eaters)
    • 1/4 tsp each salt + pepper
    • 1/2 tsp cumin
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • Lime x 2
    FOR SERVING
    • 6-8 tortillas (corn for GF eaters or flour)
    • Pickled Red Onions
    • Lime/Cilantro Aioli
    • optional: Lime juice
    • optional: Fresh cilantro, chopped
    • optional: Hot Sauce and/or salsa
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (232 C), line a baking sheet with foil, and prepare dipping stations by whisking together almond milk, lime juice, and oil in a shallow bowl and mixing panko bread crumbs and spices in another shallow bowl.
    2. Halve avocados and carefully use a large knife to cut into the pits, twist and remove. Then lay avocado halves skin side down and cut into 3 equal parts. Each avocado should yield 6 pieces. Repeat until you have 12 pieces. Gently peel away skin.
    3. Dip avocados first into almond-olive oil mixture, then transfer to the panko-spice mixture and use a spoon to gently coat. Carefully transfer to foil-lined baking sheet and repeat until all avocados are coated.
    4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the exterior.
    5. While avocados are baking, prep toppings. Warm beans + season to taste, slice lime, chop cilantro.
    6. When avocados are done baking, remove from oven and immediately assemble tacos. They taste best when fresh.

    Nice. I figured some people would go Mexican on this one. And I admit, one of my upcoming entries is indeed, Mexican.
