Just when you thought you had seen it all in a taco, I come around with this crazy version that includes kale. But before you dismiss these, hang tight and let me explain.
Three years ago, when I began to develop recipes for my third cookbook, The Best Grain-Free Family Meals on the Planet,I had a call-for-ideas from my MOMables community. This recipe came from Wendi who made these for her son Beckam, and it’s one of their family favorites.
In today’s version, I use ground buffalo meat, just like Wendi shared with me, but I’ve made them with ground beef and ground turkey, and it always comes out delicious. Check out this video to see how quickly they come together in the skillet.
As many of you know, tacos are a way to my heart, right after coffee, of course, and this recipe makes an appearance our weekly taco night from time to time.
You might be thinking that there is no way kale can taste good in a taco, but I’d argue that when finely chopped, it wilts down to a texture very similar to spinach, which you can substitute in this recipe if you don’t have kale on hand.
For the most part, the meal comes together in about 15-20 minutes inside a large skillet, making it a breeze to prepare and cleanup is minimal. Don’t you love that type of recipes? I sure do!
