  1. Make sure you use low-carb greens (like spinach and/or cabbage) for the base of the bowls. Arugula is a good option too.
  2. You can omit the onion if desired.

Low-Carb Ground Beef Taco Salad Bowl

This healthy ground beef taco bowl is packed with zesty flavors and fresh vegetables! Made with cauliflower rice, it's Paleo and Whole30 friendly.


  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 batch taco seasoning, (linked below in recipe)
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower, You can use bagged riced cauliflower as a time saver!
  • 4 cups Spinach + cabbage, (or your favorite greens)
  • Salt and pepper, To season the cauliflower rice
  • Salsa, avocado, tomatoes, olives, and any other toppings you love


  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, add your green pepper and onions to the pan. Cook until the onions are translucent.
  • Add your ground beef. Break it up and stir everything around. Continue to cook on low to medium heat, depending on your stove.
  • While the meat is cooking, toss the cauliflower rice on the stove in a medium sized skillet, over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. It will cook in just a few minutes. I like to cover my pan so it speeds up the cooking a bit and kind of steams the cauliflower rice.
  • When the ground beef is just about done, add your taco seasoning. Stir until the ground beef, green peppers, and onions are coated.
  • When the ground beef is finished cooking, turn off the heat. Turn off the heat on the cauliflower rice, and start making your bowls.
  • Add a bunch of your favorite greens to your bowl first. We use spinach and/or cabbage usually depending on what is in the fridge. Then add your cauliflower rice next. The ground beef goes on top of the rice. Then add your favorite toppings. We like to put olives, avocado, salsa and some homemade chipotle aioli.
  • Get to eating these bowls up! They are bursting with flavor and are filling too!
