Whole30 and Paleo Taco Meat

Have you figured out how to make bacon taco shells yet?  NO?! Two ways, either buy a taco shell bake rack and use those as a mold and bake until crisp, or curl bacon around a muffin tin (use inside or flip it over and use the outside) and bake until crisp.  Now, what to fill them with?  THIS taco recipe!

Whole30 and Paleo taco meat

Whole30 and Paleo taco meat


2 pounds lean ground beef or bison (don’t like read meat? use ground turkey or ground chicken)

2 onions, one sweet, one yellow; diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

14oz can fire roasted tomatoes with garlic

3 bell peppers (I used one yellow, one orange, one red), chopped

2 jalapeño peppers, diced

3 tbl. chili powder

1 1/2 tbl. cumin

1/2 tbl. garlic powder

1/2 tbl. onion powder

1/2 tbl. paprika

Kosher salt


Optional: 1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (for heat)


In a large pot over medium heat brown meat with onion.  Spoon fat from pot and discard.  Add garlic, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, and spices.  Sauté until peppers are desired texture and meat is cooked through.  Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper.  Yes it is that easy!  See?  No junk filled seasoning packet required!
