  • While the flesh of 1 avocado is still in the skin, use a knife to cut the avocado into medium-sized cubes. Use a spoon to scrape the avocado from the skin into a bowl. Reserve the avocado skin.
  • Add 5 oz canned tuna, 2 tbsp grated coconut, 3 tbsp evaporated milk, 3 tbsp tomato sauce, ¼ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper into the bowl. Use a spoon to mix everything together.

  • Tuna: This recipe calls for canned tuna, but I am never opposed to subbing a fresh cooked tuna steak if you’d prefer it! You can use this Fried Tuna Steak recipe. 
  • Coconut: I use grated coconut, unsweetened.
  • Evaporated Milk: You can find this in a can in the baking aisle of your grocery store.
  • Squeeze the lemon over your serving of Tuna Stuffed Avocados for a pop of freshness. 
  • You can easily double this recipe to serve 2!
  • Some recipes call for keeping the avocado intact and then mixing the filling ingredients together without the avocado included. In this case, you would then stuff the filling into the pit section of the avocado. Feel free to do this if you’d prefer it.  
  • Have an almost-full can of evaporated milk leftover? Use the extra to make this delicious Easy Tres Leches Cake recipe.
