Turkey Taco Bowl with Spicy Avocado Dressing - an easy recipe to use up leftover tacos! They're simple to put together and are a healthy lunch idea PLUS a yummy dinner.

Last week I posted the recipe for Spicy Avocado Dressing, you’ll want to save that one too – it’s needed to complete the recipe (and it’s oh-so-good).

Spicy Avocado Dressing - an easy homemade salad dressing recipe that's creamy, yet dairy free. This makes a great fry dip too! Whole30, Paleo and 21 Day Fix approved!

I love these turkey taco bowls for two reasons:

  1. They’re super easy.
  2. They’re a great way to use up leftover taco meat.

Use whatever you have in your fridge to complete your turkey taco bowl. I usually make these with the additional of black beans for some added protein. If you want to make these taco bowls Whole30 friendly, skip the cheese, corn tortilla shell, and black beans (you’ll also want to make sure that the taco mix is homemade or Whole30 friendly).

  4. This sounds really good! It’s a great idea to use up ground meat!

  5. This looks lovely; a perfect healthy alternative for a favourite meal… But I would likely substitute shredded turkey meat instead of ground.
