I love bowls!! This ground turkey taco recipe is delicous. My family usually has this dinner about 2-4 times a month. My husband likes to make tacos- I will fry him a few corn tortilla taco shells in oil; but I personally always make bowls or a salad. This is a delicious and easy recipe for the whole family!


Taco Meat:
1 lb Ground Turkey Meat
1 Taco Seasoning Packet
2/3 Cup Water
1 Cup Frozen Corn Kernals
Individual Bowls:
2/3 Cup Taco Meat Mixture
1/3 Cup Black Beans*
1/3 Cup Cooked Farro**
1 Cup Chopped Romaine Lettuce
1/3 Chopped White Onion
3 Tbsp Chopped Cilantro
1/3 Cup Chopped Tomato
1/3 Cup Cubed Avocado
2 Tbsp Crumbled Queso Fresco or Cotija Cheese
1/4 Cup Roasted Unsalted Pepita Seeds***
2 Tbsp Favorite Salsa****

Let’s Make It!

Taco Meat:
This is pretty simple and the directions are also on the back of the taco seasoning package. Bascically just sautee the ground turkey until fully cooked. Drain the fat- I usually put a paper towel in a strainer so the meat doesn’t fall through. Put the meat back in the sautee pan. Add the taco season from the packet, along with 2/3 cups water. Mix well. Add the corn and mix until combined. Turn to low heat for about 5 minutes.

Prepare the Bowls:
I start by creating the base in a bowl with rice, black beans and romaine lettuce. Add the veggies: onion, cilantro, tomato and avocado. Top with taco meat, queso fresco and pepita seeds. Finally add your favorite salsa! Enjoy!!


*Black Beans– I use raw black beans that I soak overnight or quick soak (instructions on bag)- this eliminates all of the extra sodium and preservatives in canned black beans; although, you can use canned black beans – Your Choice!
**Rice– You can use any rice of your choice here. I personally prefer brown rice, farro, red rice or a wild rice mixture. Cook rice as instructed on bag or box.
***Pepita Seeds– If you buy your pepitas raw, go ahead and throw them in a hot pan and toast them up a little bit. About 5 mins.
****Salsa– I use salsa verde, but you can use any salsa you prefer. Sometimes I don’t even need salsa, because when you mix it all up the taco meat seasons everything!
