Introduction

About this Recipe

Fresh and bursting with healthy fats, this is a real Summer-time treat. The ingredients are so simple, it’s hard to get it wrong. And you can always serve it over a plate of fresh greens.
Ingredients
  • ½ lb.    Ground Beef
  • ½ tsp    Ground Chili Powder
  • ½ tsp    Paprika
  • ½ tsp    Ground Cumin
  • ¼ cup    Passata (pureed tomatoes)
  • ½ cup    Mozzarella (shredded)

Toppings

  • ½           Cucumber (diced)

  • ½ cup  Sour Cream
  • 2            Avocados (halved and pitted)
  • 1 oz       Cilantro (chopped)
Notes:

  • 85/15 Organic Grass-Fed is my preferred choice, but use what you like (including ground turkey!)
  • For the pureed tomatoes, you can choose fresh or canned. With or without seasonings.
  • Use an English cucumber for fewer seeds.
  • If you like it SPICY, try fresh jalapenos.
  • You can also remove the avocado from the peel, and slice or cut into chunks. Arrange slices on a plate a top with fixin’s.
