Dinners are about to get a lot healthier, and more delicious! Growing up, we always had taco night. It was so much fun being able to mix ingredients and sauces together, to create the most perfect taco! I don’t know many people who dislike tacos, but I do know a lot of people who would like to know how to make them a little bit more healthier.

A great place to start, is the beef. Please please please, do not go buy store bought, pre-made taco mix, YUCK. Im telling you, homemade is the way to go (and you won’t feel guilty about it the next day). Plus, majority of the store bought seasonings are loaded with sodium (way more than your daily requirement). Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for additional notes.

-4 servings (224 calories/serving)


-1 tsp Avocado Oil

-1/2 cup Red Onion (diced)

-1 tsp Chili Powder

-1/2 tsp Paprika

-1/2 tsp Cumin

-1/4 tsp Sea Salt

1. Heat a medium pan on the stove top and add avocado oil, onion, chilli powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, and sea salt. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes. 

2. Add the garlic and beef and sauté until the beef is browned.

Additional Notes:

Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days.

More Spice: Add cayenne pepper or red chilli flakes.

Pressure Cooker: No need to add extra water as the beef releases quite a bit of liquid naturally.

Serve it With: Lettuce Wraps, brown rice tortillas, or tacos. Or, use on top of greens as a taco salad
