Cinco De Mayo Taco Salad!

I made this a few months back and it turned out so well, I figured today would be a great day to post the recipe.

Taco Salad

1lb grassfed ground beef

1-2 Tbs of either: coconut oil, olive oil, lard or if you’re like me, bacon fat

cumin powder

chipotle powder

medium yellow onion chopped

green or red bell pepper sliced (optional)

2-4 cloves garlic minced

salad greens

Heat oil, lard or bacon fat in large skillet on medium heat.  Add onion, bell pepper and garlic and sautee until onion is tender and clear.  While onion and pepper are sauteeing, combine ground beef, cumin and chipotle in a large mixing bowl.  Add ground beef mixture to skillet and brown.  Reduce heat to low and simmer another 10-20 min.  Place salad greens on a plate and put ground beef on top.  Add pico de gallo and guacamole.


1 large or 2 small avocados, pitted and peeled

1/2 white onion, finely chopped

small bunch of cilantro, finely chopped

juice of 1 lime

salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, spoon out avocado and mash with a fork until desired consistency.  Add onion, cilantro and lime juice.  Season with salt and pepper.  Store in airtight container with avocado pit to preserve freshness.

Pico De Gallo

4 roma tomatoes pitted, seeded and chopped

1/2 white onion finely chopped

1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

juice of 1 lime

diced jalapeno (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients into food processor or blender and chop coarsely until mixture reaches desired consistency.  I usually do about 5-8 pulses and it’s good to go.  Set aside or store in fridge when done.

If you’re not abstaining from alcohol, pour yourself a NorCal Margarita and enjoy with your meal.

  1. This looks delicious! I’ll have to try it out one of these nights. I just recently started eating Paleo, so it’s good to get ideas of different dinners to make.
