Not exactly Paleo because of the dairy (sour cream and cheese), but you can omit those. Otherwise a good dish.
The spices in this recipe were excellent, full of flavor with out being overly hot. The sour cream and salsa mixed together makes a tasty layer in this salad.
I made this tonight for my wife and I. We've been trying quite a few paleo recipes and I thought this sounded good... and easy to prepare. I wanted to stay away from other taco salad recipes, that use Catalina dressing. While I'm sure it's good, we are avoiding, what you might consider prepared foods. This taco salad recipe was outstanding. The seasoning mix added just the right amount of taste and heat to the ground beef. I tasted it before adding it to the browned ground beef, to make sure. The mixture of salsa and sour cream was also tasty. I will make this again in the future.
Such a great recipe on its own... I give a 5 star rating, but like most recipes, I tweak it for my taste. One thing I love to do on taco salad night is add finely diced red peppers in with the meat. I cook half in at the start then the other half of red pepper near the end for a more crunchy pep. On the bed of romaine I toss in diced cucumber. While dairy isn't considered paleo, I still consume it... I mean, c'mon, it's sour cream.... I can bathe in it!! And cheese... I'd be a cheesy crybaby without it!
Just used the spice combo for my own taco seasoning. Great proportions ......no need to buy taco seasoning anymore!
Some people opt for a little dairy on a paleo diet, especially butter. I think it is more of a grey area than a hard rule. This recipe is very much like the taco salad recipe I have always made and loved, but I never thought of adding lime to the salsa/sour cream dressing. It was a nice touch. My seasonings are more complicated but this was just as good, and I liked the cooked onion over raw. Thanks
Holy cow this is good! And so fast! It's perfect and the only thing I changed was added a lot more garlic cloves.
Made this tonight following the recipe exactly and the flavor was great!Awesome paleo goodness! You won't be disappointed with this taco salad.
