Taco Salad

Prep Time

10 minutes

Prep Notes

Mix seasoning ingredients and chop tomatoes. Prep other toppings as desired.

Prepare sour avocado cream the night before and keep in fridge until ready to serve.

Cooking Time

10 mintues


6 servings


2 lbs lean ground beef

1/2 tbsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)

1/2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

2 tomatoes

Boston lettuce, salsa and sour avocado cream to serve. 

Other toppings as desired.


Brown ground beef in large skillet. Drain excess fat.

Add seasoning mix and arrowroot powder and stir until thoroughly combined (you may need to add a small amount of water to the pan). 

Serve over a bed of torn boston lettuce and top as desired with salsa and sour avocado cream. 


I add organic gluten-free tortilla chips to my salad (and Heather's of course) in place of using the traditional flour-based tortillas, but everyone else in my family uses whole wheat tortillas in place of the boston lettuce. They also add cheese to their tacos - not so good for those of us that are dairy intolerant!

I buy a good quality jared salsa when I don't have time to make my own, especially since I have to make the sour avocado cream to have in place of regular sour cream.
