  • 1 lb ground beef
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 cherry tomato halved
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 cup Pico de Gallo
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • sour cream
  • lime wedges for serving


  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and break up the meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned all over and cooked through about 5-7 minutes. Drain fat.

  2. Stir cumin and chili powder into the meat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add tomato paste and about 2 tablespoons of water. Cook until the water cooks off and the flavors have melded, about 2 minutes more. Turn off heat and set aside.

  3. Assemble salad: Toss chopped lettuce, cooked ground beef, cherry tomatoes, black beans, cheddar cheese, avocado, cilantro and pico de gallo together in a large serving bowl. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
