Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground black pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground beef, stirring often, until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Mix in onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir spice mixture into ground beef mixture and cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 more minutes.
  3. Combine salsa, sour cream, and lime juice in a small bowl. To serve, spread shredded romaine lettuce onto a serving platter and top with meat mixture, salsa mixture, cherry tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, and chopped cilantro.

The spices in this recipe were excellent, full of flavor with out being overly hot. The sour cream and salsa mixed together makes a tasty layer in this salad.

I made this tonight for my wife and I. We've been trying quite a few paleo recipes and I thought this sounded good... and easy to prepare. I wanted to stay away from other taco salad recipes, that use Catalina dressing. While I'm sure it's good, we are avoiding, what you might consider prepared foods. This taco salad recipe was outstanding. The seasoning mix added just the right amount of taste and heat to the ground beef. I tasted it before adding it to the browned ground beef, to make sure. The mixture of salsa and sour cream was also tasty. I will make this again in the future.



Not exactly Paleo because of the dairy (sour cream and cheese), but you can omit those. Otherwise a good dish.
