- 1 head lettuce, washed and chopped
- red onion
- grass-fed ground beef or chicken
- black beans
- ¾ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon cumin + extra for tortillas
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- tortilla chips
- tomatoes*, diced (or pico de gallo, which is diced tomatoes mixed with onion, cilantro, chili peppers, and lime)
- lite sour cream
- bunch of coriander
- 1 lime
- Turn the broiler in your oven on high.
- Melt the butter/oil in a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat on the stove. Add the onions and cook for several minutes until they start to soften.
- Add the beef and beans to the pan. Break it up with a spatula while the beef browns. Season the meat mixture with the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Place tortillas on a large, ungreased baking sheet and sprinkle them with cheese. Put a few dashes of cumin on top of the cheese. Put them under the broiler for 2 – 3 minutes or until lightly brown.
- While the beef and tortillas are cooking, spread the lettuce out over a large serving platter then top it with rows of tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream.
- Add the cooked ground beef mixture in a row on the serving platter. When the tortillas are done and have cooled slightly, slice them (kitchen scissors or a pizza cutter work great for this) and add them to the platter as well.
- Sprinkle entire dish with fresh cilantro leaves and some fresh-squeezed lime juice. Serve immediately and enjoy!
