Taco Turkey Bowl

I am the queen of meal prepping and letting half of it go to waste. Anyone else with me? I’ve realized that I need to switch it up (I can NOT keep eating the same quinoa bowls day after day) and that means I need to cook throughout the week. I also need meals that actually taste good but leave me leftovers.

I’ve been trying to incorporate more protein into my diet, so I’m starting with ground turkey. I shared the beginnings of my taco turkey bowl on Instagram this week and it turned out so yummy, I had to share the recipe. And the best part: it’s cooking-for-dummies level easy.

What you’ll need:

  • Ground turkey

  • Taco seasoning

  • Veggies: Trader Joe’s sells pre-chopped veggie bowls that include broccoli, carrots, green and red cabbage, jicama, green bell pepper, radish and celery. That’s what I used here.

  • 1 can of black beans

  • Avocado

  • Herdez medium guacamole salsa


In a large pan (large enough for turkey and veggies), cook the ground turkey first and add the seasoning once done. Then, add in the veggies and sauté. I like adding them to the same pan because you’ll get some of that seasoning on the veggies, too.

Once done, scoop turkey/veggie mix into your bowl and add black beans, avo and the guacamole sauce. Enjoy!

See, it’s fool-proof.
