The ketogenic diet is the go-to diet plan for individuals looking to burn fat while maintaining muscle. It relies on eating high-fat and low-carb foods. This diet, however, can become boring sometimes. That’s why this Mexican bowl sounds so yummy! The keto-friendly Mexican bowl offers an abundance of flavor, texture and health benefits – perfect for a healthy diet.
To make a Keto-Friendly Mexican Bowl, you’ll need a few simple ingredients. To begin, you’ll need one pound of ground beef. Any kind of ground beef should work, but try and find grass-fed beef if possible. The remainder of the ingredients are: a half cup of cooked onion, a quarter cup of diced jalapenos, two tablespoons of garlic, one can of diced tomatoes, one tablespoon of olive oil, one teaspoon of cumin, one teaspoon of smoked paprika, one teaspoon of chili powder, one tablespoon of tomato paste, one-half cup of olives, one-half cup of cilantro and one-half cup of water.
Making the Mexican bowl is simple. First, brown the ground beef on medium-high heat in a large skillet and cook it until it is no longer pink. Next, add the diced onions, jalapenos and garlic. Cook these together for about 2 minutes. Then, add the can of diced tomatoes and the remaining ingredients. Cook all of the ingredients together for about five minutes, stirring frequently. Once everything is cooked, set aside the beef and onions mixture.
Now let’s assemble the bowl. Place a bed of lettuce in a bowl. Sprinkle the beef and onion mixture on top of the lettuce and add chopped tomatoes, olives, fresh cilantro leaves and diced jalapenos. For an extra kick of flavor, prepare a simple avocado avocado-slaw to top the bowl. To make the slaw, combine one chopped avocado, half cup of cilantro, one tablespoon of lime juice, one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of diced jalapenos, one teaspoon of garlic powder, one teaspoon of chili powder and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Mix the ingredients for the avocado-slaw and spoon it on top of the Mexican bowl. You can serve the bowl as is, or top it with cheese, sour cream, or your favorite hot sauce.
This keto-friendly Mexican bowl offers a satisfying and nutritious meal that is sure to become your new favorite. Not only is it filled with flavor and health benefits, it is also incredibly easy to make. The vibrant colors, textures, and unique flavors make this dish look as fun to eat as it tastes.
