  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced fire roasted tomatoes
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • Optional toppings: sliced avocado, cilantro, sour cream or Greek yogurt


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and sauté a few minutes until they start to soften. Add the garlic and cook another minute until fragrant. Add the ground turkey and season it with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Cook the turkey until browned, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks.
  • Add the tomato paste and mix it into the turkey. Cook 1-2 minutes and then add the fire roasted tomatoes, water, chili powder, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir to combine. Stir in the frozen riced cauliflower and corn (no need to defrost them). Cook 6-7 minutes until the vegetables are cooked. Stir in the black beans and about half of the grated cheese. Simmer another minute until cheese is melted.
  • Sprinkle the remaining half of the cheese evenly over the skillet and cover with a lid for a minute until melted. Uncover and garnish with avocado slices and cilantro. Serve with sour cream or Greek yogurt, if desired.
