Quick Healthy Taco Scramble (Grain-Free)

My family loveThey are always eager to help with this one as they love Mexican flavors. If it tastes like tacos, they will eat it!

Taco Scramble: Quick Eats on Busy Nights

This Taco Scramble brings together all of the best flavors of Mexican food—cumin and spices, peppers, onion, and flavorful meats. (Without the vegetable oil-drenched corn chips or flour tortillas!) The stir-fry style presentation opens up all kind of possibilities … like adding in an array of fresh or frozen veggies not normally found in a taco.

It can be topped with all of the favorite Mexican restaurant toppings too, depending on your family’s diet: raw cheese, cultured sour cream, fermented salsa, guacamole, fresh avocado or tomato, cilantro, or a squeeze of lime.

For nights when fresh produce is on hand, it’s easy to switch over to Lettuce Wrapped Tacos for variety and a more traditional taco presentation.

Homemade Taco Seasoning Hack

If you love Mexican food as much as our family does, it makes sense to use a ready-made taco seasoning in place of the individual spices called for in the recipe. Of course, I don’t mean buying those packets of taco mix from the store, which are filled with … well, fillers.


Homemade taco seasoning makes it possible to pack in as many health-boosting spices and herbs as possible while controlling salt and preservatives. (Plus you can actually be sure it’s fresh.)

It lasts a long time when stored in a dark, cool place and I reach for it constantly. If you have time, you can even make certain spices from scratch for maximum freshness and health benefits.

Taco Scramble for Breakfast?

Grain-free breakfasts can be a challenge. It helps me (and the family meal budget) to reuse last night’s leftovers for breakfast. If this sounds like a gross proposition, consider seasoned meat and colorful peppers folded into an omelet or vegetable frittata and topped with a sprinkle of cheese and Mexican hot sauce. Not as out of the box as it seems!

Leftover Taco Scramble also can be easily packed for lunch. (It’s good cold, too, even!)
