  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 9, 1/2 cup servings. 1x

Description

This one pot meal has incredible flavor and depth. Plus it’s so easy to make! 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Laura’s Lean beef
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno – seeds in
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons taco seasoning (Soul Fit Grill is my go-to)
  • 1/2 cup of cheddar or mexican cheese for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream for garnish
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish. 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil.
  • Juice of 1 small lime.

Instructions

  1. Chop/prep your bell peppers, onion, garlic and jalapenos – everything can be roughly chopped here, but make sure your chopping is even so the peppers cook evenly.
  2. Heat your pan to medium high heat
  3. Add your garlic and onions to your pan with avocado oil until the garlic gets golden brown (the onions will cook down throughout).
  4. Add in your Laura’s Lean beef and break it up into smaller pieces to let it brown, season it with taco seasoning, salt and pepper
  5. Let the ground beef cook until it’s close to your desired temperature (8-10 minutes on medium high heat) and add in all of the pepper close to the end. You don’t want to overcook the peppers – you still want them to have a nice crunch. 
  6. Add in your lime juice and stir to incorporate it.
  7. Stir once again as the meat and peppers cook together. 
  8. Top with sour cream, cheese and cilantro. 
  9. Serve with a margarita and enjoy! 

Notes

  • This also goes great with some cool avocado. I also loved it with an egg on top. 
  • To make your life easier, prep your veggies first so you can add them in at the various steps. 
  • If you don’t have avocado oil, any neutrally flavored oil will do.
