Here’s a fun, healthy and fatty supper idea for you. I used to love tacos and Mexican food but since going grain free we’ve had to improvise a little. So I made tacos in lettuce bowls for supper last night with homemade guacamole and some caramelized onions on the side. It’s the perfect GAPS or PALEO supper. I cooked the ground beef and red peppers 🌶 in coconut oil and duck fat, added spices to create taco seasoning and served as you see below. We also had some homemade sauerkraut with our meal! You can also use ground chicken, lamb and pork or strips of beef, pork or chicken like you would use for fajitas or stir-fry’s. The important part is to incorporate lots of fat into the dish.
Ingredients for 4 people Taco Meat
– 1 lb to 1 1/2 lbs of ground meat of choice – 1/2 onion diced – 1-2 cloves of garlic pressed – 1 red pepper sliced in strips – For the following spices, please use the quantities you like: – 1-2 tsps of chili powder – 1/2 tsp onion powder – 1/2 tsp dried oregano – 1-2 tsps of ground cumin – 1/2 tsp paprika – salt and pepper – coconut oil and duck fat to cook meat and peppers * You can also add garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, and crushed red pepper flakes Directions: add coconut oil and duck fat to pan, on low-medium heat. Once warm, add the meat and peppers as well as all the other ingredients and stir well until cooked. At least 15 minutes.
Guacamole – 4 ripe avocados mashed – 1/2 onion diced – 1 small clove of garlic pressed – juice of 1-2 limes – 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil – 1 small bunch of cilantro chopped – salt & pepper to taste Directions: mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve on top of the meat in the lettuce bowls
Caramelized onions – 5 onions, I used red in this recipe – 5-6 cloves of garlic, pressed – 1/4 cup coconut oil – 1/4 cup butter Directions; Slice onions into strips, add coconut oil and butter to pan on low-medium heat. Once warmed up, add onions and cook until they become translucent. Stir every few minutes. Then closer to the end, add the pressed garlic and keep cooking. These can take for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
