it’s been awhile! i am currently taking a much needed break from my normal work & spending lots of qt with my family, acting as the in-house chef. we’ve been doing family dinner once a week, feeding 6 & tonight i prepared some healthy tacos.

ingredients (serving 6):

  • romaine lettuce
  • ~8 cherry tomatoes, cubed
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 2 small white onions, sliced
  • 2 lbs of grass-fed ground meat
  • extra virgin olive oil- to drizzle in the pans
  • salsa
  • guacamole (or sub sliced avocado)
  • taco seasoning (based on a recipe found here):
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp salt

directions:

  • turn stove on low, drizzle some evoo in a med size pan & throw most of the onions in- leave a handful for the pan the beef will be cooked in
  • while the onions are softening, mix the taco seasoning together in a small bowl & slice up the veggies
  • once the onions are soft & translucent, add the peppers- turn heat to med & let cook until the peppers have softened up a bit
  • turn another burner to med heat, use a large pan, drizzle some evoo & put the rest of the onions in there
  • once the onions have softened a bit, place the beef in the pan, breaking it up, stir every so often & let it brown
  • once the beef is browned, add the taco seasoning & let the flavors mix in for a little bit
  • setup the tacos to be assembled- use the romaine leaves as the shell (yes it will get messy, let it happen) & line up the beef, peppers & onions, tomatoes, salsa & guacamole in bowls, ready to be assembled

enjoy!
