  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (2 tsp)
  • 1 lb 93% lean ground turkey

  • Fresh cilantro and lime slices, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Add garlic and saute 10 seconds, then add turkey and season lightly with salt and pepper (about 1/4 tsp each add more at the end as desired). 

  3. Cook, turning and breaking up turkey occasionally, until cooked through, 5 – 6 minutes. 

  4. Add in chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper and cook 20 seconds longer, while tossing.

  5. Pour in chicken broth and tomato sauce, bring to a simmer then reduce heat to low and let simmer until sauce has reduced, about 3 – 5 minutes. 

  6. To assemble bowls divide rice cauliflower among bowls, top with turkey mixture, corn, cheese, avocados, pico, cilantro and serve with limes for spritzing. 

  7. *For homemade pico de gallo, in a bowl toss together 3 diced Roma tomatoes, 1/4 cup diced yellow onion, 1 small minced garlic clove, 2 Tbsp minced cilantro, 1 Tbsp lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.
