I love tacos. I could eat them every day — especially these healthy ground chicken ones*. Dress them up any way you’d like. I like to keep them pretty simple with a big slice of avocado and some cholula hot sauce.
what you need:
1lb ground chicken (dark meat preferably) Note: Ground turkey is an option as well!
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 other pepper chopped (green, orange, yellow or another red. Whichever you like best!)
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
corn or gluten free flour tortillas
what you do:
In a large pan heat up 3 tbsp olive oil. Add the pepper and sauté for 5 min. Add the ground chicken along with the chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Continuing sautéing together, breaking up the chicken as you go along till the meat is nice and browned (about 10 minutes).
Heat up your tortillas either in a dry skillet (my preference) or the microwave. Put a nice big piece of avocado on a tortilla, scoop on some chicken & peppers and top off with hot sauce.
Simple. Delicious. Good for you.
