Taco bowls!

We love tacos! We have been eating a lot of wraps for lunch and we were all tortilla’ed out, so we made some taco bowls. They were delicious, super filling, and pretty healthy!


1 lb turkey burger

1 can corn drained or 2-3 stalks of corn on the cob (sliced off the cob)

1 can black beans drained

1 green bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

2 poblano peppers

2 jalepenos

1 onion (we used yellow, use whatever)

2-3 tablespoons of cumin

1 tablespoon garlic

1/2 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

(if you want to use a taco season packet instead, go right ahead!)

1/4 cup water

Salt/pepper to taste

Olive oil to coat pan

1 avocado

Sour cream for serving

Salsa for serving

Lettuce for serving

Shredded cheese of your choosing for serving

Ranch for serving (super optional)


I started by chopping all the vegetables. I diced them pretty small. I put the turkey burger in with some olive oil and cooked it until it was brown before adding in all the vegetables.

I add all of the spices and a the water and continue stirring occasionally. I added the corn and the black beans toward the end.

I made a quick guacamole with some of the onion, jalepeno, a few shakes of each of the above seasonings and mashed it all together.

I put the taco mixture in the bottom of the bowl, added a handful of lettuce and topped with a spoonful of sour cream, guacamole, salsa, a sprinkle of cheese and a drizzle of ranch. I put a few tortilla chips on the side to start and I keep adding chips in as I eat through the bowl to have a crunch in every bite!
