Grain-Free Ground Beef Tostadas

Grain-Free Ground Beef Tostadas

Grain-free tostada's smothered in guac with grass-fed ground beef, cilantro and tomatoes. Yep, I am pretty happy about it. ⁣⁣

Fun Fact: Taco seasoning is so easy to make! Honestly, the prepared stuff can come full of old spices and fillers like maltodextrin, rice flour or sugar. We make tacos so often I can eyeball the recipe below but a good rule of thumb is to buy organic seasonings and using a permanent marker mark your own experation date 1 year from purchase to ensure the highest phytochemical content.⁣


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt, plus more to taste
  • 8 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1⁄2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into 1⁄4-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 Siete almond flour tortillas (or another grain-free tortilla)


  1. Place the beef in a skillet and cook it over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes, breaking it into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks. If you prefer drier meat, drain some of the fat from the skillet.
  2. Add the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon salt to the skillet. Stir the seasonings into the meat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to combine and heat through.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the romaine, tomatoes, cilantro, and bell pepper with the avocado oil and half of the lime juice.
  4. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with the garlic and the remaining lime juice. Salt to taste.
  5. I used to toast to the tortillas one by one on the skillet but now I have hungry boys all around me so I either 1) throw them directly in the oven for a few mins to crisp or 2) spray them with avocado oil and bake them on a sheet pan all at the same time for efficiency. ;)
  6. To serve, layer the tortillas with avocado smash, ground beef, and the romaine mixture. Enjoy!
