Paleo Plantain Nachos

 Plantain Nachos

Are there any Paleo Challengers our there looking for some comfort food? We know how it can get on a challenge when you get stuck in a rut with the typical chicken and veggies, but why not mix it up with some Plantain Chip Nachos!

Yummm…

Now for the recipe!!!

Plantain Chips

  • 2-3 medium ripe plantains (You want to stick with a very green plantain for this. The more yellow/brown they get, the sweeter they get. Once you make these a few times, you will be able to pick out the perfect plantain!)
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sea Salt
  • Coconut Oil

Use a large pan on low heat and melt a generous amount of coconut oil so the plantains can almost be submerged.
1. Peel your plantains and slice in about ¼” slices.

2. Place the slices in one layer in the pan and sprinkle the garlic powder and sea salt over.
3. Flip them after a few minutes or when that side gets nicely browned. Keep an eye on them! They do burn quickly!
4. Let that side brown for a couple more minutes, then take a cup with a flat bottom and squish them until they are fairly flat. Flip them again (and put a little more coconut oil on them) and let them crisp up.

Taco Meat

NOTES: I would suggest taking out all your spices and a tablespoon, teaspoon & 1/2 teaspoon instead of measuring these out before hand. =)

  • 1-2 lb of ground meat (we go with 2 so we can have leftovers)
  • 2 TBS + 1 tsp Cumin
  • 3 tsp Paprika
  • 3 tsp Chile Powder (more for more spicy taco meat!)
  • 3 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Oregeno
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 to 1 Cup of water (when your adding the spices, keep adding some water to keep the meat from drying out.)

1. Place the ground beef in a pan and spread the following spices on top:

  • 1 TBS Cumin
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chile Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste

2. Let the beef cook until it has all browned.
3. Spread the rest of the seasonings over the beef. Add water as you feel needed so it doesn’t dry out (this is dependent on how much liquid there is left in the beef when you are done browning it).

  • 1 TBS + 1 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Chile Powder (more for more spicy taco meat!)
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Oregeno
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

4. Mix up and enjoy! Add extra spices as you would like to achieve your ideal taco seasoning!

Guacamole

This is how I dice an Avocado.

This is how I dice an Avocado.

  • 2 Avocados­ – Diced
  • 1 Tomato – Diced
  • Minced Garlic (or fresh garlic minced up)
  • 1 Lime
  • Cilantro (fresh is best)

1. Dice the avocados and place into a large bowl.
2. Cut the lime and juice half of it into the avocados.
3. Mix and mash the avocados to the desired consistency (use an immersion blender or mixer if you would like. I usually get ripe enough avocados that I only need a spoon).
3. Add in the desired amount of garlic and cilantro and continue to mix.
4. Finish up with adding your diced tomato!

 

Feel free to top your nachos with other diced veggies like green peppers, onions, red peppers, or anything else (still Paleo!) that you may put on tacos!
