Fried Avocado Tacos

These deep-fried avocado tacos are crunchy and creamy and spicy with the addition of a Sriracha crema and because I love spice I drizzled the fried avocados with even more sriracha hot chili sauce. I love the combination of flavors and textures in these tacos.

Ingredients

Fried Avocados:

Sriracha Crema:

Fried Avocado Tacos:

  • corn tortillas
  • cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • sliced red onion
  • crumbled queso fresco
  • cilantro

Instructions

Fried Avocados:

  • Place almond flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate shallow medium bowls.
  • Add salt, chili powder, and oregano to the breadcrumbs and combine.
  • Brush avocado slices with olive oil.
  • Working in batches, dredge in almond flour, shaking off excess. Coat with egg, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Coat with bread crumbs, pressing to adhere.
  • Pour oil into a large deep skillet and heat on medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry avocado, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to drain.

Sriracha Crema:

  • Mix crema and sriracha to taste together in a bowl.

Fried Avocado Tacos:

  • Spread sriracha crema on tortillas and top with fried avocado, cherry tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, queso fresco, and cilantro. For an extra kick drizzle with more Sriracha.

Notes

  • If you cannot find queso fresco, use crumbled feta instead. 
  • Full-fat sour cream can be used instead of crema.
