Healthy Turkey Taco Skillet

This Turkey Taco Skillet takes less than 15 minutes to make and uses ingredients you might just have kickin' around the pantry!  The combination of fibre and protein with the beans and ground turkey make the skillet super satisfying.

The recipes makes for an easy make-ahead meal prep and can be utilized in a number of creative, Mexican-themed meal idea. I typically enjoy a simple serving of the skillet topped with salsa, plain Greek yogurt, avocado or cheese. Try using the skillet as a filling for tacos or quesadilla, served on top of a bed of rice, stuffed into a burrito, or topped onto a bed of greens for a large salad!
