Ingredients

  • 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
  • 2 tbsps Chili Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (chopped)

Instructions

  • In a pan over medium-high heat, brown the beef. Break the meat into very small pieces with a spatula and cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess drippings, but keep the beef in the pan.
  • Add the chili powder, cumin, salt, tomatoes, jalapeno and green onion to the beef. Stir to combine. Cook for another 5 minutes until tomatoes are very soft. Remove from heat and stir in half of the lime juice. Season with additional salt if needed.
  • In a large mixing bowl toss the chopped romaine lettuce with olive oil and remaining lime juice.
  • To assemble the salad, divide lettuce between plates and top evenly with beef and avocado. Serve immediately and enjoy.

  • More Flavor

    Top salad with additional tomatoes, sliced jalapenos, green onions, salsa, cilantro, lime juice or hot sauce.
  • Make it Vegan

    Use black beans instead of ground beef.
