-2 lbs of ground beef or ground chuck
-2 more green than yellow plantains
-1/2 of a white onion chopped
-2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles
-1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
-1 Tbsp chili powder
-1 Tbsp paprike
-1 Tbsp cumin
-1 Tbsp oregano
-1 Tbsp garlic powder
First preheat your oven to 350F. Next you take the ground beef or ground chuck, add in the spices ( salt, pepper, cayenne powder, chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder ) and mix the meat with the spices. Let the meat mixture sit while you heat the skillet with a 1tsp of ghee ( I used @organicvalley ghee). Meanwhile chop the white onion in 1in pieces and sauté the onion in the ghee. Once the onion is cooked through, add the meat and cook until brown.
While the meat is cooking, peel the plantains, cut lengthwise and line the bottom of the casserole dish with them. I sprinkled chili powder on them as well for a bit of a kick. Once the meat is thoroughly cooked through, strain it and them dump it into the casserole dish. Next dump the 2 cans of diced tomaotes with chilies on top and spread across evenly. Place the dish into the oven and let it cook for 40 minutes.
Once cooled, you can serve the taco bake with fresh salsa and guac. I used the medium fresh salsa from @aldiusa and the pineapple poblano as well. I also topped with cilantro for taste.
Caveat…it’s not gonna look perfect..it will fall apart BUT it tastes amazing and is so so easy to make!
