Ingredients

Per Tortilla (multiply for how many tortillas you want to make) Taco Beef Zucchini Salsa
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ¼ cup diced zucchini
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 green onion, sliced thin
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
MCT Guacamole Optional Toppings
  • Sliced olives
  • Iceberg
  • Cilantro
  • Yellow bell pepper
  • Avocado

Instructions

  1. For the grain-free soft tortillas, add a drizzle of avocado oil to your cast iron pan and heat over medium for 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk egg white, cream of tartar and lime zest. Pour into preheated pan, roll around until circular. Cover pan with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove cover, flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, no cover. Fold in half and remove to a cooling rack. Repeat until you’ve made enough tortillas to make you happy.
  2. For taco beef, add all ingredients to a pan and saute until beef is fully cooked through.
  3. For zucchini salsa, add all ingredients in a bowl. Toss to combine and set aside.
  4. For MCT guacamole, add all ingredients into the jug of your blender and pulse quickly, until chopped and combined. Or, mash in a bowl.
  5. To assemble tacos, hold tortilla in the palm of your hand and fill starting with taco meat. Enjoy!

Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.

Notes

Avocado oil: if you don’t want to use avocado oil to fry with, leaf lard works great, or coconut oil.

Cast iron pan: I used a 10-inch cast iron pan that I’ve had for 8 years and I love to pieces.

Vitamin C crystals: are used to prevent the avocado from browning. Works like a charm
