Recipe Notes

  • Taco fixin' ideas: grain-free tortillas, lettuce, tomato, cheese, jalapeños, scallions, avocado, cilantro, lime. 
  • Note: If your meat is very fatty, you may want to drain it before adding the spices and salsa.
  • Make it in the slower cooker: In a skillet, sauté veggies and brown the meat. Add everything into your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
