Repairing Stucco to Install Doorbell

I'm in the process of installing a Ring type doorbell. When I took off the old doorbell the plastic anchors they used basically are rotating in the drilled hole and are not secure at all. I have a feeling if I used some ready mix stucco patch and filled in the holes it would not hold up when I drill new holes for new doorbell. Any tips or tricks for something like this are appreciated. It doesn't have to look pretty because it will be under the mounting bracket. Thanks

Some liquid nails in the holes for the anchors will probably solve the problem. If this is an EIFS system or a onecoat, thincoat stucco over foam use the liquid nails that won't dissolve the foam. Fill the hole, insert the anchors, let the glue set then put in the screws.
Stucco patch will not do what you want.
