Tasty Avocado Taco Bowl Recipe

This healthy taco bowl recipe is awesome! My husband even said this meal is probably in his top 5 favorite meals now! Whaa?! That’s a big deal. I have made a lot of different recipes over the years.

The healthy aspect is not a selling point for him either (or the other people I served it to) – they are all about taste and they all loved it! In fact, they have requested that I make it again when we get together in a few weeks. One of my husband’s comments about this taco bowl is that it is like a fiesta in his mouth. 😉

Taco Bowl Ingredients

There are quite a lot of ingredients in this recipe (find the full list below), but they all work really well together! I’m usually not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, but they are really wonderful in this dish! I think the avocado and the avocado lime dressing are my favorite parts though.

If you wanted to, you could definitely modify this recipe to include some of your favorite taco bowl ingredients. Let us know if you do and how it turns out! We’re always looking for new variations to try.

Making the avocado lime dressing

Avocado Taco Bowl Sauce/Dressing

The avocado lime dressing for this recipe is really easy to make. Just add all dressing ingredients to a blender and blend it up until your desired consistency. If it’s too thick you can add more water. This dressing would be a tasty, healthy option for any Mexican style salad!
