Speed Tacos

Sometimes you want…no…you need a hot, fast, and most importantly, a healthy meal.  But, you have zero healthy leftovers to reheat.  What do you do???

Enter the Speed Tacos!  These babies can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.  No pre-prep.  No staging.  This is 15 minutes (or less) from scratch!  And, everyone needs a simple taco seasoning recipe in their culinary repertoire.


  • 1 lb ground beef or ground chicken
  • Taco Seasoning
    • 1 tablespoon chili powder
    • 2 teaspoons cumin
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Leafy greens (romaine, spinach, iceberg, etc)
  • Tomatoes (diced)
  • Onions (diced)
  • mini sweet peppers (diced)
  • Salsa (I like Frog Ranch Hot Salsa)
  • Avocados (sliced/diced)
  • Paleo Wraps


Brown the ground beef or cook the ground chicken in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Both meats are ready when no pink/red color is remaining.  Add the chili powder, cumin, sea salt, black pepper, oregano, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and 1-2 tablespoons of water to the skillet.  Stir until the meat and the spices are combined.  This process usually takes 6-7 minutes total.


In each Paleo Wrap, add 1-3 spoonfuls of the taco meat and some leafy greens, tomatoes, onions, mini sweet peppers, salsa, and avocados.  You can get creative with the combination of peppers, onions, salsa, and leafy greens, and other ‘toppers’.  Serrano peppers, jalapeno peppers, Anaheim peppers, sweet cherry peppers, bell peppers, and onions of all varieties are great toppings for these tacos.  Switching up the variety of toppers can really alter the taste so it’s a great way to keep this dish from getting tired.  You can also easily turn this into a salad.  Just use a bed of leafy greens and leave the Paleo Wraps out.  Add a Paleo/Whole30 approved dressing like one from Tessamae’s selections in place of or in addition to the salsa.

Serve and enjoy!
