  1. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground black pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground beef, stirring often, until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Mix in onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir spice mixture into ground beef mixture and cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 more minutes.
  3. Combine salsa, sour cream, and lime juice in a small bowl. To serve, spread shredded romaine lettuce onto a serving platter and top with meat mixture, salsa mixture, cherry tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, and chopped cilantro.

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 ...

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.
