These simple gluten-free and vegetarian tacos are one of my favorites…  A fabulous flavor combo, warm and decadent tasting but still fresh and light.

Plus super easy to make!

The avocado is oven-fried, resulting in crunchy breading and creamy, decadent avocado. Served in a crisp lettuce boat with pico de gallo and spicy Sriracha aioli.

It has a freshness and a bit of a kick. Indulgent tasting and totally satisfying but still fresh and light.

The Sriracha aioli is a long time favorite and can be made as spicy as you like.

All you need is mayo (canola, regular, avocado, vegan – whatever you prefer), sesame oil (or avocado oil) and sriracha!

Mix together and it’s creamy and has a bit of a kick, perfect pairing to the avocado!

Pico de gallo can be store-bought or easy recipe below.

Best part is, the entire meal can be made ahead and heated up as needed.

    1. I made these tacos tonight and they were not only super quick and easy to make but so amazingly delicious! So happy to have a healthy alternative to the usual tacos. Will definitely make these again! ?

    2. These are great! The crispy avocado is so crunchy and still filling and delicious! I actually substituted the siete tortillas instead of the lettuce which is great but I’m sure the lettuce is as well. Was just feeling like the tortilla that day!
