Meal Prep Turkey Taco Bowls

Yields 6 bowls     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 4 cups water + 3/4 cup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 each seeded and julienne red and yellow bell pepper
  • 1 peeled and julienne red onion
  • 2 pounds ground turkey meat
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons each chili powder and cumin
  • 2 cups black beans
  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 cup shredded coby jack cheese
  • optional shredded green leaf lettuce and salsa
  • chopped cilantro and lime wedges for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Add the rice and 4 cups of water to a medium-size GoodCook saucepot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, place a lid on and turn to low heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes before removing the lid and breaking up the rice with a fork.
In the GoodCook 13.5 sauté pan over high heat, add in the olive oil and caramelize the peppers and onions until they are lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Place the sauté pan back over high heat and add in the ground turkey. Using the GoodCook meat chopper, break up the ground turkey into small bite-size pieces.
Add in lime zest, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper and cook until the turkey has no pink in it. Add in the ¾ cup of water and cook until it has been absorbed into the meat, about 2 minutes.
Meal Prep Bowls: Evenly add the cooked ground turkey to 1 of the smaller compartments amongst the 6 GoodCook meal prep bowls. In the other smaller compartment evenly add in the beans, corn and cheese. In the large compartment add in the rice and roasted peppers and onions. Add an optional garnish of cilantro and lime wedges.
If you were eating this right away, feel free to serve with the shredded lettuce and salsa.
