My husband and kids claim this is the best taco recipe ever! It’s worth trying if you want a new take on a family favorite dinner favorite.
This recipe substitutes a custom seasoning blend for your typical taco seasoning. It also uses raw saukraut instead of lettuce for a healthy crunch that also delivers beneficial probiotics in every delicious bite. (Trust me, this is one of the most delectible ways to enjoy your fermented veggies.)
Ready to try it out?
Here’s what you’ll need for the seasoned beef:
2 lbs. ground beef (We get ours grassfed in bulk from a local rancher. I usually thaw it in a bowl of water an hour before using or put it in the refrigerator a few days before I plan to use it.)
2 t. salt (I prefer Real Salt or Himalayan salt)
1/2 t. black pepper
1 1/2 t. Frontier vegetable seasoning
1 1/2 t. Simply Organic adobo seasoning
1 1/2 t. Frontier dry onion
(Please note, this is a mild recipe–so if you like it spicy double up on the chipotle powder and use your favorite hot sauce.)
In a medium frying pan, heat up the cooking oil on medium heat. Once it’s hot–but not too hot–add the ground beef. Use a spatula to help the ground beef crumble into fairly uniform small pieces. Add all seasoning to the beef and cook it until it’s brown.
Here’s what you’ll need to put the tacos together:
Hard taco shells or soft tortillas (I used these Garden of Eatin’ blue corn taco shells from Amazon Pantry. You can also find low carb options, like these whole wheat Mission Carb Balance tortillas, but they do contain some soy. My husband is on a pretty hard core clean keto regime so he prefers to wrap his with Folios Cheese Wraps.)
Raw saurkraut (I make my own, but you can find it in the refrigerator section of some grocery stores and Costco.)
Shredded cheese (I used a five-cheese Mexican blend from Costco)
I like to put out all the ingredients and let everyone (at least those who are old enough) build their own.
