- 1 lb ground beef, grass-fed
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 zucchini, chopped (optional)
- 1 pack mushrooms, sliced
- 2 large green plantains, peeled and cut into 1 inch slices
- 1-2 avocados
- ½ lime, juice only
- Avocado oil
- Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp sea salt
Sauté onion and garlic in 1 tbsp avocado oil until fragrant, then add in zucchini and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add ground beef and taco seasoning. Break a part meat and cook until liquid evaporates and meat is browned.
While beef is cooking, use another large pan to cook the plantains. Cover bottom of pan in avocado oil, heat oil then add plantain slices and fry on both sides until golden (roughly 2-minutes per side). Season with salt.
Remove plantains from pan and gently smash until flattened (I smash my plantains between two pieces of parchment paper with a mug or can).
Add smashed plantains back to the pan and fry again on both sides until golden brown. Now you have tostones!
Mash avocado in a bowl, add lime juice, sea salt, black pepper and a pinch of garlic powder.
Place everything onto a dish, as shown in photo, and assemble your tostone tacos as you eat them!
