Notes
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Store the cooked ground beef separate from other ingredients, so that you can easily reheat the meat and then assemble with salad when you’re ready to eat.
  • Feel free to substitute or add any other toppings you like! Black beans, corn, jalapeño are some options.
  • Feel free to substitute beef with any other protein of choice. Turkey mince, chicken, shrimps or tofu would be great for this recipe too.
  • Feel free to adjust amount of chilli powder according to your spice tolerance.
  • Feel free to omit or substitute cheese with a dairy-free cheese to suit your dietary requirements.
