Turkey Taco Bowl
Taco Tuesday is right around the corner and I know you’re excited. But maybe you’d be interested in trying something a little out of the ordinary? Maybe even something a little bit lighter without sacrificing flavor? These Turkey Taco Bowls deliver. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a girl who could eat regular tacos everyday of the week. Although sometimes I do try to cut back on refined carbs like wraps and bread. I only do this when I know I won’t be sacrificing flavor. Some of you may think it’s sinful to substitute a Taco Bowl for an authentic taco, but I have to say, this meal is so satisfying that you won’t miss that wrap or shell! If I were you, I’d save my wraps for these chimichurri steak tacos instead. Now these tacos do call for pulling out all the stops.
I flavor for these taco bowls comes from my homemade taco seasoning and some staples like onion, jalapeno, and garlic. Homemade taco seasoning is so easy to make ahead and really allows you to cut back on the sodium content often found in the pre-packaged stuff. Make a big batch and store it in an airtight container with your spices. Then I pile the delicious mixture onto steamed or sauteed cauliflower rice. Have you tried this yet? I made mine at home once, but I have to admit – it got a little messy. Now I buy mine frozen in the grocery store. Just look for Cauliflower Rice with other frozen vegetables. I’ve steamed it in the microwave and also sauteed it in a pan. It’s great both ways. You could opt for brown rice too if cauliflower rice doesn’t appeal to you.
Don’t forget to top this taco bowl with all of your favorite taco add-ons. Avocado, salsa, Greek yogurt, shredded cheese and cilantro all taste great. This meal comes together in one pan if you opt for the frozen cauliflower. You’re welcome. I really hope you give this meal a try next week when Taco Tuesday arrives. You won’t be sorry.
