Ingredients
  

  • 1 pkg (12 oz) frozen or fresh cauliflower rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 can (15-ounce) black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups frozen corn

Pico de Gallo

  • 2 Roma or plum tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Prepare cauliflower rice according to directions on the package, then set aside.
  • Then, cook frozen corn according to the package and heat black beans in a small separate saucepan. Set aside corn and black beans.
  • Next, heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add ground turkey, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook the ground turkey until is browned, about 5 minutes. Make sure to crumble it as it cooks. Drain excess fat, if needed.
  • Prepare homemade pico de gallo. Mix ingredients for pico de gallo in a bowl and set aside.
  • Now it is time to assemble the burrito bowl! Take the cauliflower rice and spread it on the bottom of the meal prep container or bowl, dividing it evenly. Then add ground turkey, black beans, corn, and pico de gallo.
  • Top your burrito bowl with lime juice and additional ingredients such as your favorite salsa, guacamole, cilantro, or chopped avocado. Enjoy!

Notes

Tips
  • Using pre-made pico de gallo and cauliflower rice is a time saver.  But you can definitely make your own if you prefer. 
  • If making this meal ahead of time, you can store this in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I recommend reheating before eating.  But you can eat it cold if you prefer.
