Swap out your usual taco shells for crunchy lettuce, then load ’em up with your usual taco filling, store-bought guacamole or with this quick and easy avocado filling. Let kids help with the simple steps in bold!


2 ripe avocados

1 large tomato, diced

½ teaspoon garlic salt

1–2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

½ jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)

8 large lettuce leaves, rinsed and dried


1. Scoop out the avocado flesh and smash it in a medium-sized bowl, then add other ingredients and stir well. Add more lime and salt to taste.

2. Spoon the mixture into lettuce leaves and eat them just like tacos.

Tip: Try different kinds of lettuce leaves. Romaine, red leaf and butter lettuce tend to work well.
