Mexican Beef Taco Filling


Oh my, this was so good!! Over the weekend I made this. It was not on my menu plan. Have you ever looked at your menu and said.. “blahh”… that was the case for me. I wanted to make something different. I went to my freezer and found 2lbs of thinly sliced round steak. I pulled it out and let it sit in a sink of warm water for about 30 minutes. It was defrosted enough for me to cut up into small pieces.

I also cut up one onion, several small mini peppers, and sliced up 1 head of romain lettuce and pressed 8 cloves of garlic.



I was doing this recipe on just inspiration! LOL.. no formal recipe. Sooo.. here is what I did..

I heated up my large cast iron frying pan. I put 2T coconut oil in the pan. I added the onions, peppers and garlic and sautéed this until the veggies were soft…



I added the beef and cooked this until the meat was complete cooked.
 
I then added the romain lettuce. I know this may sound strange.. but lettuce is a green.. you could sub spinach, kale or whatever your favorite greens would be. After I added the lettuce I let this cook until the lettuce was soft.
 
Then I added the spices:

¼ cup salsa
1T hot chili powder
2t cumin
1t salt

I let this simmer for a couple minutes.

Then I softened up a few corn tortillas in a little coconut oil.

To serve I put a large scoop of the meat veggie mixture in each corn tortilla…


If you would like you could add cheese, sour cream, extra salsa according to your own desires.. 

This was pretty easy to make and tasted delish!!
