  • Who doesn't love tacos???? Why not a Paleo version? AND Gluten Free A healthy version? A cost effective healthy version that your kids will love??? Ok so there are a few staples that you need to get together first. Like making a taco seasoning. I mean unless you want to buy one of those packet things but those have MSG and other chemical preservatives and such in them which personally I can't have. They are huge migraine triggers for me. Plus It's cheaper to make my own. I have a huge batch. Keep it in a mason jar with a label on it! you will always have your own!

    So here is how you make your own taco seasoning. This is what you need to first do this. Now mind you, you can use this seasoning on ANYTHING!! Use it on ground beef, ground chicken, ground turkey. Make tacos with cauliflower tortillas, make this taco pie, Make Taco salad!! there are so many uses I can go on all day. Make a big batch and share it with your mom together so you both have a small jar at home and you never need to go and buy it.  A TIP!! THOSE PACKETS YOU BUY IN THE STORE HOLD 1 -2TABLESPOONS. So whenever a recipe calls for a taco seasoning packet.. Just use 1-2 tablespoons of your premade stuff. the shelf life is like forever on this if you keep it in a mason jar or something air tight!.

    OK so Taco Seasoning:
    In a Jar mix: (NOTE I PERSONALLY MAKE probably 6-8 times this amount at once and put it all in a jar so I don't have to make it often)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper  flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ok now...Taco Pie Crust! It makes it more like a thicker biscuit type crust which is A-Okay with me
    2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
    ½ teaspoon sea salt (regular salt if you like)
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ cup butter or soy spread (some use GHEE I personally do not like that)
    2 eggs
    1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey, or your sugar substitute of choice

    Directions for biscuit mix:
    In a medium bowl combine almond flour,  salt and baking soda.
    In a large bowl blend together butter, eggs and  agave/honey.
    Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until a nice dough forms,  it will be sort of sticky.
    Set aside.

    Taco Pie Filling
    2lbs ground meat of choice, I personally use ground chicken or turkey
    1-2 tablespoon taco seasoning
    1 can of diced  tomatoes, undrained (or my cheap option just dice a few roma tomatoes myself)
    Cheese (optional) I don't use cheese for me but on some I put it for others like kids etc
    taco toppings! (lettuce, black olives, tomato, onion, avocado, etc.)

    Brown ground meat in a pan, when half way cooked, I like to add 1 tbsp off taco seasoning. Let it continue to cook through. Taste, if it's in need of a little more flavor, i add another tablespoon. Then toss in the tomatoes and a little water. Mix well and let simmer until the liquids evaporate.

    While that is simmering, go ahead and get this crust set up now.  Preheat your oven to 350.
    Grease a deep dish pie pan or even a casserole dish, whatever works for you! Personally I use an 11x13  With damp hands (it prevents the dough from sticking to your fingers!!) press the biscuit dough into your pan. Bake it partially for 10 minutes so the dough starts to look like it's set up a bit.

    When that is done, pour your meat into to the pie crust, IF YOU ARE using cheese, at the cheese as well (I put cheese on half or a 1/4 of the pie) and then return this to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes give or take.

    Cut this baby up and let everyone add their toppings..lettuce, olives fresh tomatoes! whatever you want!! and enjoy!!

    Cost break down

    Almond flour costs about $5 per bag. You use maybe $1 max worth (again im being generous
    Im not even counting the salt or baking soda because they are staples and cost you pennies for such a tiny amount.

    Crust:
    Flour $1
    Honey/etc $ 0.50
    Butter $ 0.50
    Eggs $ 0.15

    Total: $2.15

    Filling:
    2lbs ground turkey $5.00
    Tomatoes: $1.50
    Total: $6.50

    Toppings:
    Variable depending on what you want but we will say, lettuce, olives, tomatoes, avocado
    1/4 head of lettuce, 1 avocado, half can of olives, dice tomato $3

    TOTAL MEAL: $11.65
    This makes 12 servings (most people always go back for another slices lol but serving size wise it is 12) so cost per serving is....... A WHOPPING $0.97  Now if you use beef instead of turkey it will be a little more, if you add cheese it will cost a little more but seriously how much more? not much. I didn't add the cost of spices because you use such a little bit, it is pennies on the dollar.  So again, how much would it have cost you to make enough tacos for 12 people buying unhealthy preservative filled taco shells? You can't say eating healthy is expensive
