Carne Asada Street Taco Salad with Cheesy Stuffed Poblanos| Keto | Low Carb

Taco Tuesday is a favorite in our house! This dish is simple and delicious and will make all taco lovers happy. The Carne Asada is made in a skillet on the stove stop making this a quick and easy weeknight meal. There is not marinating or grilling all goes in the skillet and yet let simmer while prepping your salad and other side dishes. I serve the meat on top of nice bed of greens and cheddar cheese. I then top with avocado or guacamole, chopped tomatoes or pico, green onions, hot sauce and sour cream. No dressing needed. You can top however you like. As a side dish, my favorite is a Cheesy Stuffed Poblano Peppes. This is another easy and quick dish for a weeknight meal as I make stuffed peppers in the air fryer and they are cooked in 10 minutes or less. Recipes are to below.
