  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup salsa

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 romaine hearts, shredded

  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste (Optional)

  • cup cilantro, chopped


  1. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground black pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground beef, stirring often, until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Mix in onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir spice mixture into ground beef mixture and cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 more minutes.

  3. Combine salsa, sour cream, and lime juice in a small bowl. To serve, spread shredded romaine lettuce onto a serving platter and top with meat mixture, salsa mixture, cherry tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, and chopped cilantro.
