Paleo Stuffed Jalapeno Ground Beef Casserole

0 from 0 ratings

Looking for a fantastic recipe you can make to impress your family and friends? I have just the thing. The jalapeno pepper, a pepper favored by many, has a unique flavor, so I felt it deserved a dish that highlighted it. It’s bright and robust, with just the right amount of heat to go with your lean ground beef. In order to balance out the spice of this dish, creamy cauliflower mashed is added to the casserole together with 4 slices of cooked bacon. Paleo dishes can taste just as good, if not better, than non-paleo dishes with a little bit of creativity.
