How to Make a Low Carb Turkey Taco Skillet
Heat some oil in a large skillet. Add ground turkey and onion powder. Sauté until the meat has browned.
Add paprika, ground cumin and dried oregano (my favorite flavor combination for any Mexican dish!) and chopped red bell pepper. If you want to know how many carbs in red bell pepper – it's only 3.3g net carbs for the whole pepper! It adds color and flavor too – perfect for this recipe!
Continue to cook until the pepper has softened. I haven't added salt to the recipe because personally I don't think it needs it – but of course feel free to do a taste test and adjust seasoning as necessary.
Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the turkey (I use a Mexican blend) and cook until the cheese has melted. Remove from the heat and scatter over some chopped fresh cilantro.
Serve with shredded lettuce, sour cream, and/or low carb wraps! This is a pretty big serving for two people, although if you just had lettuce and sour cream and were super hungry – you'd probably manage it! When my husband and I shared it we ate about two thirds with wraps, and there was enough left over for me to have as lunch the next day – bonus!Low Carb Turkey Taco Skillet - an easy #lowcarb recipe using ground turkey Click To Tweet
