The Best Tacos

by drpaul

Having grown up in Southern California, Mexican food is a staple for our family. A Paleo diet style doesn’t include corn tortillas – a tortilla substitute would be to use lettuce leaves as “taco wraps”. - Dr. Paul

1/2 lb cut up or ground beef, pork, turkey, chicken (or in this video, venison), per person - great use of leftovers  
1/2 large onion or 2-3 shallots, chopped,
organic butter
Organic* corn tortillas or lettuce leaves
Taco Seasoning without MSG (listed as yeast extract) (or sea salt, chili powder and cumin, to taste)
Optional: raw cheddar cheese, shredded
Hot sauce or salsa

  • Melt butter in medium sauté  pan over low-medium heat
  • Add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes (longer if the meat you’re using is already cooked, i.e. leftovers)
  • Add meat; if raw, cook for 4-5 minutes
  • Add seasoning
  • Warm tortillas on griddle or in toaster oven
  • Assemble tacos:
    • Warm tortilla or lettuce leaf
    • Seasoned meat mixture
    • Optional shredded raw cheese
    • Hot sauce or salsa
  • Serve with steamed broccoli and/or green vegetable salad

* Whenever buying any corn product, it’s very important to buy ONLY organic products. Sadly, thanks to the merciless campaign by chemical criminal Monsanto, genetically modified foods (GMO, for genetically modified organism) have become commonplace in America (most other countries ban Monsanto GMO crops). Making the matters worse, is our spineless Monsanto lobbyist-influenced legislators refuse to require GMO foods to be labeled as such. So, the only safe recourse is to buy certified organic.
