Paleo Beef Tacos

Just because we switched to the Paleo diet, doesn’t mean we have to give up Taco Tuesdays!  We just have to switch it up a bit to fit the diet…This is a quick and easy meal that we eat almost weekly.

  2. While the ghee is melting, mix together the spices together in a small bowl.
  3. Start to brown ground beef .
  4. Mix spices with the ground beef while it is cooking.  Add more according to your taste.
  5. While meat is cooking, prep and chop veggies for toppings.
  6. Once meat is done cooking, prepare your “tacos” using the lettuce leaves and ground beef (see picture).

We love this super simple recipe that we can just quickly throw together.  My son even enjoys these new tacos 🙂 and we don’t really miss the tortillas too much.
