  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 cups shredded lettuce (romaine or iceberg)

  • 1 medium tomato, diced

  • 1 medium avocado, diced

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion

  • Juice of 1 lime


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground turkey and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking it up into crumbles with a spatula as it cooks.

  2. Once the turkey is cooked, add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to coat the turkey evenly with the spices. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and diced red onion. Squeeze the lime juice over the salad and toss gently to combine.

  4. Divide the salad mixture evenly between two plates or bowls. Top each portion with the cooked ground turkey.

  5. If desired, add a small amount of grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream (use in moderation for weight loss).

  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
