Paleo beef taco recipe


Not sure if our ancestors ever ate a beef taco like this but I could imagine they easily could have.  There is the obvious swap of the flour tortilla with a nice fresh organic lettuce leaf, which you could swap out for some red cabbage for a little more stability.  The meat flavoring compliments the meat but without overpowering so you really can taste the meat.  I suggest if you want some heat pick a spicier salsa to give an excellent contrast.  To cool things off top with some paleo guacamole or some cheese and/or sour cream if you do dairy.
