Turkey Taco Bowls

  1. Melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Brown the ground turkey for 5 minutes. It will still be partially pink.

  4. Stir in water, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and salt.
  5. Simmer everything 10-15 minutes.

  7. Scoop into bowls over mashed plantains.
  8. Add toppings of your choice. I used Wholly Guacamole Verde and fresh cilantro.
  9. Serve with a squeeze of lime juice (1/2 lime per bowl), Wholly Guacamole Verde, Belizean Onion Sauce or Whole30-compliant salsa.
