Recipe

Sometimes a taco salad really is the best thing ever. The crunchy veggies, spicy ground meat, and salty cheese make the perfect combination in my opinion and it's a quick and easy dinner I could eat almost any day of the week. Normally I like to bake up some tortillas to sprinkle on top, but in this version we leave them out to keep things lower carb. For Paleo dieters or folks following clean eating diets, just leave off the cheese instead and perhaps replace it with some sliced avocado.
