BBQ Stuffed Avocados
Basketball season is a big deal in our house! Sadly, my team is not in the tournament this year, but we’ll still be watching…and cooking up a feast!
When it comes to game day parties, barbecue is a staple here in Texas. One of my favorite ways to eat barbecue is on a baked potato, but that doesn’t quite work as an appetizer.
So instead, we took the idea of a barbecue baked potato and made it a little bit lighter, as well as a smaller size that’s perfect as a party appetizer.
Behold, the BBQ Stuffed Avocado!
BBQ Stuffed Avocado Ingredients

How to Make Stuffed Avocados with Barbecue
The best thing about making stuffed avocados is they are easy! This BBQ stuffed avocado recipe only takes about 15 minutes to make, from start to finish. That’s because we use Curly’s BBQ so we can spend less time in the kitchen and more time watching the games!
Let’s talk a little bit about the ingredients…
The Barbecue: Curly’s BBQ Pulled Pork
We love Curly’s BBQ because their products taste like homemade, but are pre-cooked so all you have to do is heat and serve! The pulled pork is one of my favorites — we’ve made quite a few fun recipes like Mini Monte Cristo Sandwiches and West Virginia Style Pork BBQ Sandwiches.
Curly’s BBQ products are available in the refrigerated meat section of your local grocer,

How to Choose an Avocado
Jumbo avocados work best for this stuffed avocado recipe because they have more “meat” than smaller avocados. That helps them to hold all the ingredients and keep their shape.
Look for an avocado with a little give to it — soft, but not mushy. Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit.
Use a spoon to scoop out a larger opening in the middle of each avocado half:
How to Layer Your Stuffed Avocado
We started with a layer of Curly’s BBQ Pulled Pork, then topped it with the extra avocado we removed earlier. Then we added another heaping spoonful of barbecue and topped it with a generous helping of shredded cheese.
Pickled jalapeños give these BBQ stuffed avocados the perfect spicy kick. After broiling, we finished our stuffed avocados with chopped green onions.

Just look at all that melty, cheesy, BBQ goodness! My team may not be a winner this year, but these BBQ stuffed avocados sure are!
