Taco Salad in a Mason Jar

If you love taco’s just as much as I do, then you’ll love this amazing taco salad recipe while sitting around a campfire in the middle of the Adirondacks!

Note: I get most of my items from our local farms or family owned stores, and I always look for organic! I have also provided links for some of the best store brands too!

Prep Time:
10 Minutes
Cook Time:
15 Minutes
Total Time:
25 Minutes


  • 1 lb Ground Meat of Choice! (Grass fed/Free-Range/Organic/LOCAL!)
  • 2 TBS of Taco Seasoning (Or Spice’s of Choice! – Spicely Organic Spices are my favorite brand for bulk spices!)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Pepper
  • Organic Black Beans – Drained & Rinsed (Or Beans of Choice!)
  • 1 Tomato – Chopped
  • Lettuce
  • Salsa of choice (I try to find at the local farmers market or make it homemade)
  • Olives (I LOVE Lindsay’s Organic Olives stuffed with garlic! – I purchase these at Hannaford in glass!
  • Cheese (If you are not 100% Paleo – I always suggest Raw Cheese!)
  • Ripe Avocado
  • Cilantro for Garnish
  • Wide Mouth Mason Jar!

*** All Ingredients are optional! You can add or remove ingredients for your liking!
*** If you have an autoimmune disease or digestion issues, I find that pressure cooking our food helps draw the lectins out and decrease inflammation in the body! – Like your beans of choice, onions and peppers! (Beans & Nightshades aren’t for everybody!)


  1. Fully cook the meat of choice with spices of choice! (Set Aside)
  2. brown the onion & pepper in a pan with a bit of oil
  3. Wash & drain the beans (I often pressure cook the beans and/or cook them quickly over the stove top- your preference!)
  4. Either layer the ingredients or mix the ingredients together, topping with lettuce, sliced avocado and cilantro (all optional)
    (Meat, Beans, Salsa, Onions, Peppers, Tomatoes, Olives, Lettuce, Cheese, Avocado, Cilantro)
  5. Seal the lid of the jar
  6. Store in the refrigerator or cooler until you are ready to eat!
