Ground Beef and Pork Mexican Taco Filling (Paleo + Whole30)

       One of my favorite weeknight dinners to make is a variation of a taco.  They are one pot wonders, can be eaten as a salad or with a tortilla and usually involve some sort of Siete product which I can never get enough of.  This recipe is hearty, flavorful and makes a big batch, great for leftovers for weekday lunches.

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 1.5 lb ground pork
  • 2 ¾ tsp salt, divided
  • 2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 Tbsp cumin
  • 1-28oz can crushed tomatoes

Directions:

  • Heat 3 tbsp avocado oil in saute pan.
  • Once hot add onions, garlic and 1 tsp.  Cook until caramelized.
  • Add beef and pork to the pan, break up clumps.
  • Once meat has begun to brown add 1 tsp salt, chili powder, paprika and cumin; mix evenly into meat.
  • Once meat is browned add crushed tomatoes and ¾ tsp salt.
  • Let sauce come to a boil then reduce and simmer for about 15 minutes or until sauce has begun to reduce and thicken.
