Paleo Mexican style, no really!

Ok so anyone else out there get the hankerin' for some good mexican, I do all the time and this one is fantastic.

1-2 sliced bell peppers
1 sliced sweet onion
2-3 gloves garlic diced
2 tbsn olive oil
cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, and chili powder (I didn't give measurements because I like my seasoning not so hot and spicy. I use about 1 tsp of ea. and about 1/2 tsp chili powder)
1 lbs beef (cut thin and long)

Spanish Calirice:
1 head califlower shredded
2 tsp olive oil
1 cup chicken broth or water
1/2 can tomato paste
1 clove diced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Head of lettuce

Spanish Calirice:
take spreaded califlower and spread out on a plate, heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes to tenderize. In a pot put in 2 tsp olive oil and garlic on meduim temperature. Add the calirice and cook to brown a little (won't brown much). add all other ingredients for the rice (broth, tomato paste salt and pepper) stir in and cook to a boil.

Meat and vegys:
heat your 1 tbsn olive oil in a frying pan. Add 2-ish garlic, onions and peppers on med/high, saute until browning and tender. Add spices as you like for flavor, remember a little Cumin goes a long way so becareful not to over do that one. When they're tender remove from pan and set aside(leave all the scrappings in they rub off on the meat and it's tasty!)

Heat frying pan again on med/high add another tbpn of olive oil add the rest of the garlic and the meat, add spices as wanted cook until done.

Take a leaf of lettuce fill it full, wrap it up and eat. It looked so good I had to post the pic again. You can add to this with some salsa and/ or guac. Ill be posting a avacado salsa in a few weeks that would be tasty with this too.
