Ancho Chile Shredded Beef Tacos

 

Meal prep like the pros with this simple ancho chile taco recipe made with flavor-filled chuck roast slow-cooked to perfection with fresh tomatoes and dried chiles. The result is tender, shredded beef and a thick sauce that brings a little heat to your table. Serve in a bowl with avocado, green onion and other garnishes, or spoon the beef onto primal tortillas. Either way, primal beef tacos made with nutrient-dense veggies and avocado-oil based Primal Kitchen® Chipotle Lime Mayo make for an amazing meal!

Want to know the secret ingredient? Ancho chiles! These hot peppers are originally from Mexico and give the sauce a smoky, earthy flavor with a slight kick. If you're looking for more heat, chop up a hot pepper and throw it in the pot, too!

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Our Keto Buffalo Wings are every bit as crispy-skinned, tender-on-the-inside, spicy and sexed-up as the most crave-worthy wings out there. We used an AirFryer to get the right texture (no deep-fried bath in cheap seed oils here!), and whipped up a finger-licking-good hot sauce made with our Primal Kitchen Spicy Ketchup to coat the wings.

AirFryer Teriyaki Chicken Wings and Drumsticks

Chicken wings and drumsticks are as Primal, paleo, keto, carnivore and even Whole30 as you can get—if you don’t deep fry them in refined oil or coat them in sugary sauces. Sure, baked chicken wings do the job, but that’s no fun. The AirFryer provides the perfect middle-ground solution: You get crispy skin on the outside without coating your kitchen in oil stains, and the meat inside stays moist and tender.

(Air) Fried Guacamole

Our Fried Guacamole marries the classic chips and guac combo into a handheld showstopper appetizer—no double dipping or browning-in-the-bowl guac concerns necessary. To keep things Primal/paleo, gluten- and grain-free, we used cassava flour and grain-free tortilla chips, and instead of deep frying, we used an AirFryer.
