Do you have your go-to in the kitchen? That one meal you eat just about every week? This is ours! We have these ground beef taco bowls (or some version of them depending on what is in the fridge) just about every week. Yep. Every. Single. Week. They are a breeze to make and so flavorful, especially for the minimal effort! Done and done. Go make these ground beef taco bowls!
This is going to be easy. All you do is get your green pepper and onion going on the stove and then add your ground beef. Heat up your cauliflower rice in another skillet, prep your toppings, and then you’re done! That’s it! It is really that easy. It is even easier if you buy the already riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s in the frozen section. It also comes in blue packaging in the refrigerated produce section.
I think taco flavored anything is really my favorite, so we find all kinds of ways to create taco-like dishes. This one is a no-brainer because it is so quick and easy to make and filled with plenty of nutritious ingredients. Lots of veggies, greens, and protein. We have been unpacking stuff and doing house projects all day long for the past week or so, and in the evening this recipe has been a lifesaver, making it so we can still have something homemade and delicious but that doesn’t take a lot of mental or physical strength to put together. Don’t you just want to pick up a fork and dive in?

- 1 green pepper - diced
- 1/2 onion - diced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 batch taco seasoning (linked below in recipe)
- 2 cups riced cauliflower - you can get it already riced at Trader Joe's as a time saver!
- Salt and pepper - to season the cauliflower rice
- Salsa, avocado, tomatoes, olives, and any other toppings you love
- Spinach + cabbage (or your favorite greens)
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 and 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 kale 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 cabbage, fresh tomatoes, olives, avocado, salsa and chipotle lime mayo from Primal Kitchen.
Get to eating these bowls up! They are bursting with flavor and are filling too!
