It’s something of a never ending quest of mine to create healthy, high protein, delicious low carb and keto recipes using ingredients I’ve got around the house. With this in mind, I’ve developed this Turkey Mince Taco Bowl.
This recipe is one of my favourites for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s incredibly easy to cook (the less dirty dishes the better). The macronutrients are suitable for those on a keto or low carb diet, and it can be adjusted to suit those who have no dietary restrictions.
The other reason I like this recipe is because it can be adjusted to suit your tastes. Like a spicier meal? Add jalapenos or some tabasco sauce. Have an intolerance to heat? Go with a mild chili powder like the one I’ve used here.
You can also add toppings to suit your preferences and dietary goals. From sour cream to salsa and avocado, with a side of tortilla chips (keto-friendly or not), or straight out of the bowl, the possibilities are endless.
This is where you get to have a bit of fun in building your Turkey Mince Taco Bowl. Choose from any of the following ingredients to create your own culinary masterpiece:
- Sliced Jalapenos
- Sliced Green Chillies
- Sliced Black Olives
- Mild or Hot Salsa
- Tabasco Sauce
- Sour Cream
- Grated Cheese
Creating Your Taco Bowl
Scoop some of the warm, turkey mince mixture into a bowl and top with your favourite additions from the list above. I recommend adding the cheese first as it will melt into the meat a bit. If you add your cold toppings first, it will cool the meat faster and you’ll miss out on the opportunity to create the cheesy goodness so many of us enjoy.
The other option here is to add some homemade keto tortilla chips to the side, or, if you’re not watching your carbs, use store bought tortilla chips or taco shells to hold your masterpiece. You can also add black, pinto, or refried beans to your bowl. The endless variety makes this recipe family friendly as well, as oftentimes not everyone has the same dietary goals.
No matter how to choose to make your taco bowl, it’s a hearty, protein-rich meal that’s easy to prepare and will leave you feeling satisfied.
Note: The calories provided in the recipe card above are for the turkey mince and sauce only. The toppings you choose to add to your bowl will change the calories per serving.
