  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice (4 cups cooked)
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO, divided
  • 1.5 lbs ground turkey
  • 4 tsp cumin, divided
  • 4 tsp chili powder, divided
  • 4 tsp paprika, divided
  • 4 tsp dried oregano, divided
  • 4 red bell peppers
  • 2 large white onions
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1.5 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  1. Prepare the rice according to the package directions. Once done, set aside to cool.
  2. While rice cooks, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add in 1 Tbsp of oil, then add the ground turkey and 2 tsp each of the cumin, chili powder, paprika and oregano. Cook on medium heat until browned, breaking up the turkey as you stir.
  3. While the turkey cooks, prep the vegetables. Dice the bell peppers and onions, and mince the garlic. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  4. Once the turkey is done, remove it from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp of oil, then add peppers, onions and garlic. Cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, or until the onions have turned translucent and the peppers have begun to soften.
  5. Add in the cherry tomatoes and the remaining spices (2 tsp each) and stir to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  6. Add the turkey back to the pot along with the brown rice. Stir well to combine. Add the shredded cheddar to the pot and stir until the cheese is melted.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat. Divide into 8 meal prep containers. Top each with fresh chopped cilantro and a lime wedge.
  8. Store in the fridge and reheat in the microwave before enjoying!
