Mexican Mix and Match

I love having company! Our friend Vashti was here from Hawaii for a short course. And she graduated this past week!! But before she left, we got to have her over for dinner one more time. 

I made homemade Taco seasoning (recipe below-YUM) from Marks Daily Apple for the ground beef. And I served it with julienned iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, guacamole, salsa, and hot sauce... plus sour cream and cheese (for the non-paleo.)
I forgot to get a picture of all the filled dishes on the table... but you got the idea!

I love Mexican Mix and Match, because it's so easy! And everyone can get what they want. We did a similar thing for our Cinco De Mayo party this year, and it was a big hit! For the non-paleos, you could add rice and beans and tortillas as well. You know, if you're into that kinda thing. :) So whip out your favorite serving dishes and start filling em up!

Me and Vashti (behind us are the remains of our Mexican Mix and Match)
Billie confessed that he has always wanted black-rimmed glasses. So he tried Vashti's on. Think it fits him??

Homemade taco seasoning 
From: Marks Daily Apple
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teasoon garlic powder or minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lb. ground beef 
Simply season raw meat then cook as desired. (I added a little water to the meat as it was cooking in the skillet.)

*I did try to make the Primal Tex Mex Tortillas, but they didn't turn out well for me! When I was through with them, they looked like a skillet full of scrambled eggs. ha! But we sprinkled the remains on top of our salads anyway!
