Paleo-Tacos-Bake

To fold the flat tortillas, bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes in an upside-down muffin tin.
Baking is WAY healthier than frying. Or you can make flat tacos.

  • 3/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili power, optional, this contains nightshades.

  • Handful chopped cilantro
  • Top with:

Instructions

  1. Make one recipe of Paleo Tortillas. If you’re serving 4 persons 2 tacos each, divide the dough into 8 sections, press, and cook. If you want the tortillas to be folded, then bake them at 400 degrees in an upside-down cupcake pan and bake for 10 minutes (See photo). Or you can make your tacos flat.
  2. Tomato Salsa (Optional, contains nightshades):
  3. Add to a food processor: tomatoes, green onions, garlic, salt, chili powder, and ground cumin. Pulse briefly until tomatoes are in pieces, without turning them into mush. Pour into a serving bowl. Season to taste.
  4. Spicy Cheese Sauce:
  5. In a small blender, add: coconut milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, coconut butter, grated carrot, coconut oil, cumin, and chili powder, if using. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a serving pitcher and keep it at room temperature. (Not in the refrigerator, as it will harden like butter.)
  6. Cook the eggs:
  7. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Whisk until fluffy. Add salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon coconut or olive oil to a frying pan, and scramble the eggs.
  8. Cook the Sausage (Optional):
  9. Fry the sausage in a pan. Or you can mix sausage and eggs together. Yum!
  10. Assemble Tacos:
  11. Get out individual serving plates, or one large platter, or arrange your fillings buffet-style. Assemble the tacos any way you like. I layered mine like this: Tortilla, greens, grated carrot, sausage, scrambled eggs, chopped cilantro. Tomato salsa would be next, if you're using it. Drizzle Spicy Cheese Sauce over everything. I'll say it again - ¡Ay, caramba!
