For Cilantro Lime Rice
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I cooked my rice in chicken broth)
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter
For Taco Bowls
  • 1 lb Turkey Taco Meat (see recipe on blog)
  • 2 cups cilantro lime rice
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 small can sweet corn
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado diced
  • cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  1. Cook turkey taco meat per recipe instructions (see blog post for instructions)


  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Hot sauce, pico de gallo, crispy tortilla strips and sour cream would also be really delicious toppings
