This quick to put together dish is a fun spin on Taco Tuesday! It’s kind of like a dip without the heavy creaminess of a dip and with grass-fed beef you are getting a great source of protein. Just be aware that you want to eat this with people closest to you as it gets a little messy. *Judgement-free zone* while eating! I didn’t even bother bringing this to the table, the family attacked and conquered it right over the counter. This serves 4 as a lunch/dinner or more as a snack.

Large sauté pan
Wooden spoon
Cheese grater
Cutting board/knife

1lb grass-fed ground beef (use ground chicken or turkey if you prefer)
1 packet taco seasoning (or homemade if that’s your thing)
4oz finely shredded cheddar
3T sour cream
3-4 pieces green leaf lettuce shredded
10oz pico de gallo drained (or chopped tomato, onion and jalapeño)
1/2 can black olives sliced
1 bunch scallion greens chopped
Your favorite tortilla chips

1. In your sauté pan break up/brown the meat. When browned pour the seasoning over the meat and 2/3c water. Cook, stirring frequently until water evaporates.
2. While the meat is warm, flatten it out in the pan, sprinkle the cheddar over, then as much sour cream as you’d like. Next a layer of lettuce, the pico de gallo, the olive and the scallions.
3. Serve in the pan with tortilla chips and watch it all vanish!

Let me know how you/your family like this one!
