Terrific Crock Pot Taco Bake

So I just wanted to share with you guys tonight’s dinner + tomorrows lunch.

I present to you my previous’ boss’ taco bake. This was the go to meal that she would bring to our monthly office potlucks. Of course she would add pasta and loads of cheese, so I had to Paleo-fy this recipe. I used shredded lettuce rather than pasta, put some guacamole and Paleo sour cream and we have a winner!! It turned out delicious, and I have leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch and for next Saturday as I had hoped for.

Paleo-fied Taco Bake

Here’s the recipe.


  • 1 lb. ground turkey, beef, sausage, or meatless crumbles (I used ground beef)
  • 1 large can of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Homemade taco seasoning


Throw it all into the crockpot and put on high for 4 hours. When it’s ready to serve, put the meat first and then top with lettuce and a dollop of homemade guacamole (2 ripe avocados mashed with a touch of homemade taco seasoning), and a dollop of sour cream. Jose doesn’t like spicy food, but I like mine with a spicy touch (the hotter the better) so I add a few drops of Tabasco and red pepper flakes.


Anyway, that’s that for today. I am going to make myself a hot tea and get ready for bed. Tomorrow is a work day …

Good night everybody!
