TOTAL TIME

25-30 minutes


 

SERVINGS

4 Servings

 


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika

  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 3⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt, plus more to taste

  • 8 cups shredded romaine lettuce

  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes

  • 1⁄2 cup cilantro leaves

  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into 1⁄4-inch dice

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 2 avocados

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 4 Siete almond flour tortillas (or another grain-free tortilla)

Directions

  1. Place the beef in a skillet and cook it over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes, breaking it into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks. If you prefer drier meat, drain some of the fat from the skillet. Add the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon salt to the skillet. Stir the seasonings into the meat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to combine and heat through.

  2. In a large bowl, toss the romaine, tomatoes, cilantro, and bell pepper with the avocado oil and half of the lime juice. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with the garlic and the remaining lime juice. Salt to taste. In a medium skillet over medium heat, toast the tortillas one at a time until both sides are crispy.

  3. To serve, layer the tortillas with avocado smash, ground beef, and the romaine mixture.
