  • *4-6 soft Positively Plantain tortillas
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cups cooked Basmati rice I used leftover turmeric spiced rice
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Olive oil

  • ½ large onion or 1 large onion
  • 2 red peppers chopped into 1" cubes
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • Your favorite spicy mayo

  • Begin with sautéing onions in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook over medium heat, 5-8 minutes until translucent. Remove from pan.
  • To the same pan, add the cubed red pepper and saute 5-8 minutes until charred. Remove from pan.
  • Next, add the ground beef to the pan and cook over medium-high heat. Mix in ½ teaspoon salt, garlic powder, onion powder & cumin. Cook for 6-10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes to allow the meat to brown.
  • Taste the ground beef and add more spices as needed.
  • Transfer the ground beef to a bowl and return the pan to the stove over low heat.
  • Heat the tortillas for 1-2 minutes per side until softened.
  • Assemble the tortillas by layering the rice, ground beef, sautéed onions & peppers, sliced avocado, cilantro, lime juice & shredded coconut. Drizzle with spicy mayo. Repeat with remaining 4-5 tortillas. Enjoy!
