Have you ever looked at the ingredient list on pre-made taco seasoning? If you have, you are aware of the unnecessary fillers such as corn starch and wheat. And these are the ingredients we can pronounce! My point being, is instead of buying a taco seasoning packet, simply use your spice rack for the Mexican dinner. This is what I do for my family.
Clean Eating Tacos:
- 1 pound of grassfed beef (or very lean ground beef)
- Optional – 1/2 onion and/or bell pepper
- 1 1/2 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 3 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1/4 tsp fresh oregano (dried if frsh isn’t handy)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt or himalayan salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
Heat ground meat (and onion or some fresh diced bell pepper) on high. Cook, stirring frequently to break up the meat, until fully cooked, about 8 minutes.
Add spices to beef. If the meat appears dry, add 1-2 Tbsp of water. Stir to fully incorporate.
Turn temperature down to medium and cook another 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. I often stir in some salsa at the very end to add more moisture and flavor.
We usually eat our tacos w romaine lettuce leaves and homemade guacamole Oh! And I can’t forget to mention, save the leftovers for a killer taco omelette in the morning.
