Happy Taco Tuesday, friends!
I have the perfect easy and healthy recipe for your Taco Tuesday dinner that will have you feeling good about your dinner choice…and allow a little wiggle room for extra margaritas 😉
These Turkey Taco Bowls with Cilantro Lime Rice are so yummy and so easy to throw together.
The meat is so flavorful and comes from my recipe for Turkey Taco Meat with a secret ingredient that takes the taco meat from yum to WOW!
These taco bowls also feature a recipe for really delicious Cilantro Lime Rice that was inspired by everyone’s favorite fast food joint and is crazy-easy to make at home.
I am back on my “trying to eat healthier” kick this week. So far I am 0-3 in the sweets department.
On Easter, my mom brought over a cute little basket filled with all my favorite candies. So, of course I had to rip open the bag of jelly beans and immediately devour a few handfuls. I keep taking a few jelly beans at a time and then closing the bag (like that’s going to stop me)- but inevitably I keep coming back for just a “few” more…the bag is almost gone.
Then someone brought some fresh-out-of-the-oven Krispie Kreme donuts to my office yesterday. Like I said previously, you couldn’t pay me to turn down a doughnut, so….there was that.
And THEN after dinner last night I decided I couldn’t let the rest of my Fruity Pebbles Funfetti Poke Cake from Easter go to waste.
Oh, and then there was that small cup of frozen yogurt AJ brought home for me- but we won’t talk about that…
So yeah, I am basically in need of a healthy dinner…for at least the next few days!
Enter this Turkey Taco Bowl with all my favorite fixings and a little less guilt!
Feel free to top these taco bowls with the fixings of your choice.
I really like corn, black beans, cheddar cheese, tomato and avocado, but feel free to get creative and add your own flare!
Of course, as I am typing this post, my wheels are turning and I am coming up with some other topping ideas that would be delicious…
A few dashes of hot sauce, some crunchy tortilla strips, some fresh pico de gallo and a dollop of sour cream is never a bad idea.
So, get creative my friends and try these Turkey Taco Bowls for your next Taco Tuesday celebration, or your next marathon of weekend meal-prepping.
These Turkey Taco Bowls are a healthier twist on a classic taco recipe with a little less guilt.
Cook turkey taco meat per recipe instructions (see blog post for instructions)
For Cilantro Lime Rice: Cook rice per box instructions (I used chicken broth instead of water). After the rice is cooked, squeeze in about 2 tbsp. of lime juice, stir in chopped cilantro, season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in 1 tbsp. of butter
Put rice in the bottom of a bowl, top with turkey taco meat and then top with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, avocado, corn and black beans- or the toppings of your choice.
Hot sauce, pico de gallo, crispy tortilla strips and sour cream would also be really delicious toppings
