Taco Salad

Another classic for me growing up was Tacos. I love tacos, so naturally, taco salad is a must in this recipe collection!


  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 pound of ground beef (chicken or turkey)
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, rinsed, dried, and chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 6 oz. cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 tbsp. sour cream
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 8oz Salsa


In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Turn up the heat to high and add the ground beef. Brown the meat, stirring constantly, until crumbly. Drain excess fat. Lower heat and add the paprika, cumin, oregano, chili powder, cayenne, and plenty of salt and pepper. Add water, tomato paste, and mix together well. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Place the romaine lettuce on four plates or tortilla bowls. Spoon the meat mixture over the lettuce. Top with tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, green onion, and salsa. You could always buy a taco mixture to cut down on time if you’re in a rush!
