My personal attempt at bringing the summer-loving, vacation taking, fiesta seeking lady in me into my very own home

  • 12 ounces ground turkey meat
  • 5 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1 firm-ripe avocado
  • 1 green bell pepper

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons organic coconut oil
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 1 cup tortilla taco crisps, for garnish

Optional: cheese, black beans, sour cream


  1. Heat pan or skillet on medium-high heat, remove ground turkey from packaging, then drain excess fat by blotting it with a paper towel
  2. Add two tablespoons of coconut oil to the pan then add in ground turkey. Stir often and add in any desired seasonings (cumin, chili powder)
  3. Pan fry ground turkey until pink has dissipated and meat is fully cooked through. (i prefer mine extra crispy) Remove ground turkey from the element
  4. Place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, bell pepper, salsa, tortilla crisps and lastly squeeze with a fresh lime
