Tacos are one of the easiest things to make but not always the healthiest. This recipe uses sprouted corn tortillas with limited ingredients, homemade taco seasoning instead of store bought, and organic grass fed ground beef, making these tacos more healthy diet worthy than the store bought boxed taco kits.
While sprouted corn tortillas are not Paleo because corn is considered a grain, they only have 4 ingredients: organic sprouted corn, filtered water, sea salt, and lime. No artificial anything, vegetable oils, or preservatives!
You can also try tortillas from Siete Foods. They make grain free tortillas! Then you can take this recipe from healthy noms to Paleo!
Sprouted Corn Tortilla Tacos | Makes 8 Servings
- 2lbs 93% Lean Organic Ground Beef
- Sprouted Corn Tortillas
- Romaine Lettuce
- Pico De Gallo
For the Taco Seasoning:
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 Tsp Onion Powder
- 3 Tsp Paprika
- 4 Tsp Cumin

Mix the spices to make the taco seasoning. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet or pot until no pink is showing. Add 6 tablespoons of the taco seasoning to the cooked ground beef. (Save remainder of seasoning for another time.) Mix until combined.
Portion out into airtight containers and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
