This colourful dish is easy to prepare and full of goodness. With the lettuce playing the role of the traditional taco's we're all familiar with, it is easiest eaten with a knife and fork rather than fingers!

Getting started
2

Heat a pan on medium heat and add the coconut oil.

3

Once the coconut oil has melted add the ground beef.

4

While the meat is cooking prepare the salad by washing and chopping the lettuce.

5

Once the meat is cooked through add in the seasoning and mix well.

6

Assemble the salad by placing the lettuce at the bottom followed by the beef, avocado, salsa, sour cream and the cheese.

For a bit of kick, I like to add 1/2 a chopped fresh red chilli, either to my seasoning or sprinkled on the top at after serving.
