I love healthy Mexican food, especially when it’s healthy, delish, and ready in 30!
This taco meat recipe could not be more convenient.
It’s ground turkey taco meat made with rice…in one skillet. Boom!
Taco Meat for Meal Prep
I love meal prep that gets me through a busy week!
This skillet entree can be meal prepped on Sunday as a component to several meals through the week.
After it’s cooked and cooled, I simply store it in the fridge in an airtight container, and dish it out through the week into taco salad, burritos, enchiladas, nachos…you name it!
That’s if I’m being civilized, of course, because sometimes I just scoop it right out of the skillet with tortilla chips…and call it dinner!
I know…so classy!

Kitchen tools I use
Hey wait! No beans?
It’s crazy, but not everyone can eat beans…and sometimes I like to take breaks from them.
So, this recipe is dedicated to my bean-free readers.
But, if you want ’em…knock yourself out! Just add a can of drained, rinsed beans to the skillet before you simmer it. Boom!
