Does anyone else love taco bowls? I do! They are so quick, tasty, easy, and you can make them low-carb if you need to. This recipe is a heck of a lot cheaper in ingredients then what you pay at Chipotle, and I can whip this up in 3-4 minutes. I usually use either grilled chicken that I cook in bulk or ground turkey breast that I season with taco seasoning. I make this often for lunch or a mid-morning meal. Here is what I like to put in mine:
-3oz grilled chicken breast, chopped (or ground turkey)
-1 cup raw broccoli (81g), chopped
-2 Tbsp salsa (33g)
-2 Tbsp fat free sour cream (30g)
-1/2 small avocado (45g)
-taco seasoning to taste
Carbs: 12g (5g fiber)
-If I need carbs in my meal I add 1/2 c brown rice, which will vary depending on the brand but usually adds about 120-150 calories and 30-35g carbs.
I make this quick meal a lot and it really fills me up! Plus it is full of vitamins, healthy fats, and fiber.
