Paleo Tex-Mex Casserole

Paleo Tex Mex Casserole

This recipe comes from Ciarra over at PopularPaleo.com.

Rather than use pre-packaged taco seasoning, I re-used the same seasonings I used in my Fiberific Burrito Casserole experiment from a few months ago. I also topped it with some diced avocado.

The Verdict

My wife is a big fan of this stuff, which is always a plus. I would describe it as “ok”. To be blunt, I didn’t listen to Ciarra closely enough. I ended up a bit rushed, and did not properly prepare the sweet potatoes before baking. As a result, I felt they were a bit raw and bland. I also went a bit overboard on the veggies. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it could use more meat.

Thoughts for next time:

  • Fry up the sweet potatoes with some butter or coconut oil before baking
  • Add more beef (use 2 lbs) for this amount of veggies
  • If making a non-paleo version, add some beans and rice and enjoy your carbs
