Gluten Free Taco Salad

Confession, I have been craving Taco Salad like crazy lately. Being on a Paleo type diet, we try really hard to be constantly mindful of what we put into our mouths. I do not eat fried corn tortilla shells, nor really chips. With that said, even Mark Sisson says he recommends the 80/20 method.

So here is my cheat that I share with you guys today. It is still gluten free, and corn free.

Make this salad…. but at the last minute add Cheddar Nut thins, and continue to cook for a minute or so.

  • 1/2 head of Lettuce
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 3 green onions
  • 12 ounces of Grass fed Organic, ground beef
  • 2 Organic Roma tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh salsa
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 3 teaspoons of Chili powder
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • A pinch of Sea salt, and black, and red pepper

In a skillet brown beef, thoroughly. As you are cooking the meat, add all the spices listed above. When ground beef is 1/2 cooked add in green onion and then when meat is almost done, add in Cheddar nut thins, salsa, and tomatoes. Stir well. 

Chop/Dice up lettuce, and slice avocado. In a bowl, toss lettuce, and then top with grass fed beef, top with Cheese and avocado.

Serve and enjoy!!
