Calories 223kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Avocado or Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Cup Onion chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons Low Carb Taco Seasoning (note 1)
  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey or Beef
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 8 Ounces Tomato Sauce
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Serve In (Pick One, note 2):

Toppings:

  • Lettuce shredded
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Avocado

Instructions

  • Tortillas. Prep your tortillas (the meat cooks quickly). If using my low carb tortillas, be sure to wrap them in a slightly damp kitchen towel as you prep the filling (to keep them pliable and soft).
  • Saute. Heat oil (2 tablespoons) in a large skillet over medium heat. Once shimmering. Add the onion (1 cup) and saute until it softens and just begins to brown, 5-8 minutes. Stir in taco seasoning (3 tablespoons) and cook for 2-3 additional minutes to toast the spices, you'll know they're done once they become fragrant.
  • Meat. Add turkey or beef (1 pound), and break up with your spoon as it cooks and slightly browns. Cook until no longer pink. Add the salt (1 teaspoon), pepper (1/2 teaspoon), tomato sauce (8 ounces), and apple cider vinegar (1 1/2 teaspoons), and give everything a stir. Simmer until the sauce thickens to coat the meat, 4 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.,
  • Serve. Scoop the meat into your tortillas, and cover with your toppings. Enjoy!
