AIR FRYER AVOCADO TUNA MELT
Fried avocado is an indulgent treat that gets a healthier twist when you air fry it! Since I love avocado, I’m always on the hunt for ways to use it in our meals. Substituting bread in sandwiches with avocado is a great solution, especially if you’re following a low carb or keto lifestyle right now.
You can put pretty much any sandwich filling in an avocado and you have a delicious meal!
