Foodie Friday: Turkey Taco Burrito Bowls

By  | 

Today’s recipe is basically DIY Chipotle. I love Chipotle. Burritos… burrito bowls… my weakness. My desire for a healthy burrito bowl topped with fresh veggies that I could make myself (combined with the fact that there is no Chipotle in my city) led me to this easy and delicious recipe.

The Recipe: Turkey Taco Burrito Bowls
Ingredients
  • 1.25 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) beef broth
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • Cooked rice
  • Taco toppings; shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, cheese, avocado, olives, guacamole, sour cream, tomato, lime wedges, etc.

Instructions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, over medium high heat, cook the ground turkey with the salt & pepper until cooked through and no longer pink, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks. Drain.
  2. Add the cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, and flour. Stir the mixture constantly for 1 minute while it cooks. It will be crumbly (that’s ok).
  3. Slowly add the beef broth, a little bit at a time, while whisking to let it thicken up. Add in tomato sauce and stir to combine.
  4. Bring to a boil. Once boiling add the black beans and corn.
  5. Turn heat to medium and let simmer for 15 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Serve with rice and taco toppings for delicious burrito bowls.

*Notes

  • It’s easiest if you combine the spices and the flour into a small bowl. That way when you are ready for it you can just dump all at once and then stir.
  • To make this a quick, 30 minute meal. Prepare and chop your toppings while the meat mixture simmers. Put the rice in the rice cooker or on the stove top first thing.
