I know, I just posted tacos, but I cant help it...I love Mexican food! Especially when it's GUILT FREE! This recipe is super versatile, and with a little help from kitchen appliances and a pre-packaged sauce your meal is ready in under 30 minutes. 
Anddd I need to give credit where credit is due. My hubby prepped the "rice" and turkey before heading off to work. So believe me when I say, It's simple!

Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 head cauliflower, broken up into large florets
  • 1/2 brunch cilantro with stems
  • 1/4 jalapeño
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (approx 1/2 lime)

Ground Turkey

Pulse together cauliflower, cilantro, garlic, and jalapeño in a food processor. No food processor? No problem! 

  1. "rice" cauliflower on a box grater and add in finely chopped jalapeño, cilantro, and garlic 
  2. chop all vegetables finely using with your kitchen knife or
  3.  buy pre-riced cauliflower and season. 

Place "rice" in a microwave safe bowl, add salt, and cook in microwave for 2 minutes. Give it a stir, and cook for an additional 1 minute. Add lime. If you want the rice to be more tender cook for 30-60 seconds longer. I like for it to have more  of a bite. You can sauté the rice in a skillet with a tiny bit of oil, but save yourself the calories and energy! 
Brown ground turkey in a large pan, and add ‪Frontera‬ skillet sauce. Heat through. Done! 
Build burrito bowls/salad or tacos with toppings you love. I had diced sweet potato in the fridge so sautéed that with a oil, S&P, and red bell pepper. Then topped w/ pepper jack cheese, black beans, and a tomatillo salsa. Yummy and satisfying! Sushil made tacos since he doesn't have to worry about carbs. 

Suggested add-ins: black beans, salsa, corn, sauteed onions and bell pepper, cheese, sour cream, guac, etc. 
 


Tips

  1. Make this vegetarian with soy chorizo or tofu. 
  2. Would work well with beef, chicken, or a flaky white fish!
