Quick Taco Salad

This is my go to meal if I have waited too long to let my dinner meat thaw out. Hamburger is usually fast to thaw out. Or I'm trying to cook dinner last minute or just having a busy day, this is a sure fast way to get dinner on the table. The nice thing about a Taco Salad, is that it's a great meal for lunch or dinner and it can cater to many food allergies or special diets! And there is usually leftovers. We typically have some left overs with a family of 4, which is GREAT for a busy schedule. One nice thing that has happened since going on the GAPS diet, is the kids are so much easier to please! We had tacos last night. I had leftover squash from our squash pancakes this morning, some cooked mixed veggies and taco meat. Threw it all in a pan, cooked it up, and what do you have?? I have noooo idea! But they ate it!

One of the hardest learning curves I experienced when going from processed foods to foods from scratch was seasoning! I am use to pre-mixed Taco Seasoning!! Hello!! It took some time and a few recipes to nail down my Taco Seasoning the way I like it! I hope you like it too! Or at least it can give you a foundation for your own taco seasoning! :)

Quick Taco Salad

What you will need:

2lbs Grass Fed Beef Hamburger
Organic Non GMO Corn Chips (Optional)
Shredded Cheese
Tomatoes (Optional)

For Sauce you will need:

1/2Cup Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil
1tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic 
1tbs Paprika
1 1/2tbs Cumin
1tbs All Purpose Seasoning or Parsley

Combine Coconut Oil and and Hamburger in a large Skillet (I use) and cook till browned. Add all seasonings and mix well. Prep your lettuce and cheese! And layer by layer make your Taco Salad! In our house we are all on different diet restrictions. So this salad you see is my husbands salad! lol Not mine. :( My newest addiction is very sensitive to dairy and I'm nursing, so I can't eat ANY dairy (learn more about diary sensitivity in babies). My kids can't have the Corn Chips. But of course my hubby gets everything!
