Taco Smash from Paleo Girl

As I’ve been trying to eat healthier I have been spending time searching Paleo websites – now I’m not strictly Paleo BUT there are some yummy recipes that suit me to a T – this is one of them.

Taco Smash from PaleoGirlsKitchen.com

Prep time: 12 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

2 sweet potatoes, peeled
1 carrot, peeled
1 small turnip, peeled
sea salt

Taco Meat
1 lb ground beef
1 ½  tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (or less if you don’t love spicy)

2 small avocados, sliced
1 roma tomato, diced

¼ cup cilantro, minced

⅓ cup white onion, diced
hot sauce!

1. Cube the sweet potato, carrot, and turnip. Cover them with water in a pot. Bring the water to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes. Drain the mixture. In a large bowl, combine the vegetables, sea salt, and pepper. Mash them together.

2. In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, brown the beef, breaking it up into crumbles. Mix in the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and red pepper as the meat is browning.

3. To assemble: put a scoop of smash on a plate. Top with ¼ of the meat mixture. Sprinkle with the toppings!
