Skinny One Skillet Mexican Cauliflower Bowls (+ the BEST ground turkey taco meat ever)

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times. Mexican food is life. If you don’t agree this blog may not be for you.. just kidding 😜.  I think my ultimate goal in life is to find all the skinny-ish, healthy-ish Mexican food hacks so we can keep on eatin’ y’all!

Today I’ve cracked another one. One of my favorite dishes when I go to a place like Chipotle is a burrito bowl. (Dos Bros is my favorite Chipotle-Like place in Chattanooga. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s SO good.) I love ordering a burrito bowl- rice, beans, meat and all the delicious Mexican toppings. To create an at home, healthier version I use cauliflower rice and ground turkey.

Watch out y’all, this one skillet masterpiece is about to have you hooked!

1 Pack of Ground Turkey
