Beef Taco Meal Prep Bowls – Keto, Paleo

| | | | | |

My favorite thing about these beef taco meal prep bowls is that they are delicious cold or heated up! Which makes them perfect for quick lunches throughout the week. They are so simple to prepare but the seasoning on the beef and the fresh flavor of the pico de gallo take it to another level.

Beef Taco Meal Prep Bowls

I used my Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice recipe to add even more flavor to these bowls. I add jalapeno for heat to both the cauli rice and the pico de gallo but you can leave it out if you don’t like spice. You can keep your pico de gallo in a separate condiment container if you don’t like it warmed up. I like it both ways so I leave it in the bowl. If I want to add the avocado, I just pack it an avocado saver and scoop or slice it when I am ready to eat.

Notes for Cooking the Beef:

*I learned this method from Christina at The Castaway Kitchen

1.) Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat and add in the beef

2.) Use a whisk or meat chopper to break the meat up, don’t leave any big chunks

3.) Let cook for another 10 minutes until the liquid has evaporated, add the seasoning in and let the meat get nice and brown and crispy!
