Turkey Quinoa Taco Bowls

Turkey Quinoa Taco Bowls

I’m all about quick and easy meals. 30 minutes or less – even better. I try to cook things every week that I know will be enough for dinner for my husband and I AND lunch the next day. We make these taco bowls probably every single week. We switch up the meat to keep things spicy. One week we do beef, the next chicken and the next turkey. It’s a fun rotation. You can also switch up the rice/grain that you use. This example I have quinoa. I had some pre-cooked in my fridge and wanted to eat it up and it turned out amazing. We usually use Near East Spanish rice and we love it!

The great thing about cooking is you can be creative. There are no rules! If it sounds good, try it!

I hope you like this recipe- I made it with you in mind to share ♥
