City Mom’s Clean Tacos


I love Mexican food. Enough said. While on my path of clean eating I’ve gained more confidence in trying new things. I am now at a place where I am seeking to ‘clean’ up some of my past favourite recipes.

A Friday night favourite in our house is Taco Night! We love setting all the ingredients out on the table and personalizing our own tacos.

Usually I buy a taco kit and mix it all together, but sadly, that’s not clean, so I did some research and made a few adjustments and created a clean taco recipe.


Note: this is a gluten-free and cow dairy-free recipe


  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Mix all the ingredients together and set aside.


  • 1 can of organic diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup of filtered water
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Mix all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Mix until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a pot and simmer over medium heat for 15 – 20 minutes.


Select your protein. I used organic ground beef.

Brown the meat and add taco powder with 1/2 cup of filtered water. Mix until thickened, about 5 minutes. (Note: you may need to add more water.)


Select your favourite taco fixings and clean thoroughly with fruit & veggie spray. I used romaine lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeno and gluten-free brown rice wraps for the taco shell. I also used plain Greek-style goat’s milk yogurt as a sour cream substitute.

Place all the ingredients in separate bowls and place on your table. Create your tacos at the table over fun and family time.
