Eating Paleo is getting easier every week.  In an attempt to keep preparation easy this week, I decided to prepare a taco salad without the cream and cheese.

Taco Seasoned Beef

  • 2 lbs Grassfed Gorund Beef
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Hot Paprika, or regular
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Mix the seasonings together and set aside.  Prepare the ground beef and break up as you cook.  While beef is cooking add about two tablespoons of the season mix and continue cooking until it is done.

I placed 4oz. of the beef mixture on top of a salad that just included Spring Mix salad, sliced Roma tomatoes, Scallions, Black Olives, and sliced Avocados.  I thought it needed something else on top, Taco Sauce.

Taco Sauce

  • 1 8oz can Tomato Sauce, without salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Hot Paprika, or regular
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Put everything into the blender or bullet.  Sprinkle a tablespoon over the ground beef and enjoy.
