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!

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!
