Paleo Enchilada Casserole

Growing up in Southern California there was always a plethora of Mexican foods available.  I remember our next door neighbor inviting us over for tamales, enchiladas and carne asada.  From a very young age, I acquired a love for Mexican flavors. One of the ingredients that makes Mexican cooking so tasty is cumin. 

Cumin has some amazing qualities. It has been around for thousands of years.  This small unassuming seed helps to boost our immune system, aids in digestion and adds a nutty peppery flavor to any recipe. To read more about cumin .

Paleo Enchilada Casserole

Serves 6


2lbs grass fed hamburger    
1/2 onion
2 TB minced garlic
1 head cabbage
5 oz can tomato paste
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup water
2 TB Cumin
2 TB Chili powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Olive oil
1 can of green chilies chopped

Cut cabbage from the head, removing the core. Place the cabbage into a pot of water. Cook until soft but not mushy. While waiting on the cabbage, brown the hamburger and onion, drain then add 1 TB cumin and chili Powder. Mix in the garlic then salt and pepper to taste.

In a sauce pan combine the tomato paste, chicken stock, water 1 TB cumin and chili powder. Salt and pepper to taste. Before using the sauce drizzle with Olive oil and mix together.

After draining the cabbage place a small amount of sauce in the bottom of  large Pyrex dish. Layer Cabbage, meat, green chilies and then repeat, finishing with a layer of cabbage. Pour the sauce over the top of the cabbage.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Finish the dish with some lettuce and slices of avocado.

What I learned

We may feel that we are small and insignificant but God has other plans for us.  He may want us to 
Flavor the world with His love.
Aid others in some way or
 Boost their spirits by encouraging them. 

You are the salt of the earth Matthew 5:13

I can't imagine Mexican food without cumin. I can't imagine the world without Christians who take their job seriously to flavor this world with the Love of God!
