Paleo "Puerto Rican Beef"

My friend shared this paleo recipe with me last month and I've already recreated it twice! Once with beef and once with chicken. It's very easy to make and versatile, serve it with mashed sweet potatoes, wild rice, or on top of a salad!

Paleo "Puerto Rican Beef"
Time: 30mins

- 1-1.5lb Ground Beef or Chicken
- 1-2 tbsp Coconut Oil/Olive Oil
- 1 Onion
- 2 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1/2 tbsp Cumin
- 1tsp Coriander
- 1/2-1 tbsp Tumeric Powder
- Salt and Pepper
- 1/2 tbsp Garlic Powder
- Cayenne or Crushed Chili Peppers (Optional)
- 1 tbsp Oregano
- 1 bunch of chopped kale (spinach or chard works too!)
- 6-10oz Jar of Green Olives (I've used garlic stuffed and jalapeno stuffed)

  1. Add oil to a medium heated pan and cook the onion and garlic. Once onions become translucent, add ground beef or chicken and crumble. Incorporate the spices into the mixture, add more as necessary.
  2. Reduce heat and add your kale and olives. Once the kale wilts the dish is ready to serve!
  3. Serve with sweet potatoes or with tomatoes, avocados, and cucumbers! Enjoy!
