Taco Bowls

I absolutley ADORE the inspired flavors and ingredients in tacos! Cumin, paprika, chili powder, salsa, chilies, and tomatoes…LOVE!! Tacos are a go-to meal that I cook, in some variation, every single week as my family loves Taco Tuesdays!! Today I am sharing TACO BOWLS as it’s back to school for the kiddos and between after school activities, homework, and more this is the perfect dish because it’s easy to be individually crafted to fit your family. Just add whatever toppings you have in the refrigerator. My family loves tomatoes, olives, avocado, salsa, and shredded carrots. It’s quick, easy, and filled with plenty of nutritious ingredients like veggies, greens, and protein. 
Sunday evenings, I typically cook a few pounds of ground meat and multipurpose throughout the week with breakfast scrambles, toppings for lunch, or just a mid-morning or afternoon snack.  I vary the type of meat each week, choosing lean ground beef, ground turkey, chicken or pork. For this particular recipe, I used ground beef, but feel free to choose whatever meat your family desires. I also developed a taco seasoning recipe with the ingredients I love.  I make this in bulk and keep in a sealed container which will stay fresh for up to six months.  One tablespoon of taco seasoning to one pound of meat.  I add ¼ cup of water or broth to the mixture. This recipe is gluten-free, Paleo and Whole 30.
