Healthy Taco Bowl!

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

Calories: 225
Fat: 9g
Carbs: 12g (5g fiber)
Protein: 26g

-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.

Have you ever made a taco bowl at home before?  Anything else you like to add to yours?  If you make this recipe, let me know what you think in the comments below!

  1. Mexican food is my go-to for healthy and quick make at home meals. Funny, though, people don’t usually equate mexican food with healthy choices, but its so easy! I love my taco bowl made with black beans, sauteed peppers and onions. Sometimes I’ll add chicken or mushrooms, avocado and pico de gallo. If I make a batch on the weekend I can easily portion and heat up throughout the week.
