Taco Casserole Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 4 chopped tomatoes, large
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Anaheim peppers
  • 1 cup grated high-quality sharp Cheddar

Ingredients for Tortillas

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil

Directions

In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of oil and saute the onion until soft, 5 minutes. Add the ground beef. As it cooks, season with chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, sweet paprika and salt. When the meat is almost cooked, stir in the tomatoes. Turn off heat and set aside.

For the anaheim peppers, set the peppers over the flame of a gas stove, or under a broiler. Cook the peppers, turning as needed, until the entire pepper is blackened. Put the peppers in a sealed bag or container to steam and cool; rub the blackened skin off with your fingers. Chop, then mix in with the meat.

In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, tapioca flour, cumin, chili powder and salt.

In a large bowl, whisk together the water, eggs, and oil. Slowly add the coconut flour mixture to the wet ingredients, whisking constantly to eliminate clumps.

Heat a tablespoon of avocado oil over medium heat in a non-stick skillet. Pour a little less than 1/4 cup batter in the hot pan. Let the batter sit untouched for one minute then put a lid on the pan and cook one minute more. Flip the tortilla and fry for 1 to 2 more minutes. Continue frying tortillas until the batter is used up, making sure there is always a thin layer of warm avocado oil or coconut oil in the pan.

Preheat oven to 375 °F

Coat the bottom of a 2 quart square or round baking dish with a little oil. Add a layer of 4 tortillas. Cover with half of the ground meat. Add another layer of tortillas. Cover with more ground meat and the grated cheese.

Bake 30 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting. 

Optional: Add lettuce, tomatoes, and diced avocado as toppings once casserole is baked and cool. Enjoy!
