Tacos are one of those foods that are just fun to eat. You can eat them in a colorful restaurant with sombreros aplenty. Maybe even a fruity margarita to wash them down with.
There are endless options to customize to your liking. Hard shell or soft tortilla? Beef, turkey, or pork meat? And toppings- well that list could go on and on.
At first glance one might think that tacos are a big NO with Crohn’s disease or for anyone following a paleo diet. Hard shells are made of corn and soft tortillas are made of wheat. Luckily, there are options for pretty much anything you used to love in your pre-modified diet days. Including tortillas!
For a long time I used these rice wraps, which are gluten free but not grain free. Now, I switch between those and these newer grain free tortillas. Both are tasty options that are pliable when you warm them up.
As a big toxin-free advocate, I recommend grass-fed and organic meats when available. If your local stores and markets don’t carry it, ButcherBox is a service I use and highly recommend. There is no commitment, so you can cancel anytime. Plus, you get to choose what kind of meat and how often it is delivered. And the meat is always high quality and delicious. (You can get $10 off your first order plus free bacon with my link).
Responsibly raised meat plus juicy pineapples. That might be the most underrated combination around.
Cooking the pineapples down just a little bit so they’re tender draws out their sweetness. Yet, they still hold up due to their hearty nature.

- Brown ground beef on medium heat in a large skillet with the salt and garlic powder. While the beef is cooking, chop the pineapple into bite-sized chunks.

- After 10 minutes, the taco meat is ready. Heat up the tortillas of your choice either stove-top or in a microwave. and top with the scallions.
So, what are you waiting for- go make these!
Before you go, I’d love to know, what other ways do you utilize pineapple in the kitchen?
