Tacos are a family favorite! It’s important to keep your family’s favorite meals on the menu when you make a dietary change – like switching to a Paleo menu. One easy way to do this is to use Romain lettuce boats instead of taco shells. You can also make crepes that are Paleo compliant. Crepes create a soft tortilla option. Another possibility is to make taco salad minus the chips and cheese.
Paleo tacos…leaving out the grain, gluten, dairy, corn and legumes… Oh I heard some of you sigh… “What no taco shell, no cheese, no sour cream, no tortilla chips and salsa… How is this going to work?”
Well it works well… You start with heavily seasoned, grass-fed ground beef. I season with chili powder, cumin fresh chopped onions, fresh minced garlic, cracked black pepper, sea salt, and some kind of tomato product of your choice. I tend to use tomato paste because it’s thicker and a little bit sweeter.
Brown your meat with the onion, then add the spices. After the meat is fully cooked add the tomato paste. Delicioso!
Wash Romain leaves of lettuce to use as lettuce boats, and fill them just like you would tacos. We layered ours with meat, guacamole, fresh tomatoes, onions, pico de gallo, grilled fajitas. Add whatever you like that is paleo compliant.
