Good Eats: Turkey Taco Skillet

I completely understand how hard it can feel to get a healthy meal on the table on weeknights where you barely have time to sit down! Life’s a whirlwind sometimes, but it’s worth the extra bit of effort to put a meal together that won’t leave you feeling heavy and bloated! That’s why I love one pot dishes I can make in record time – with little mess to clean up. This Taco Skillet is a favourite of mine and using lean ground turkey makes it healthy without losing any flavour.

Turkey Taco Skillet


  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey

  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning

  • 2¼ cups water

  • 1 (16-oz) jar salsa (use a homemade version or choose one with fresh ingredients)

  • 1 (11-oz) can corn

  • Chopped red & green bell peppers

  • 2 cups brown rice

  • toppings, such as shredded cheese, cilantro, green onions, sour cream, tomato and lettuce


  1. Cook turkey in a skillet until brown (break it up into pieces)

  2. Stir in seasoning mix, water, salsa and corn. Bring to a boil.

  3. Stir in rice. Simmer on medium for 5 minutes.

  4. Cover with tight-fitting lid, and turn off heat (keep pot on burner).

  5. Let stand 15-20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

  6. Dish up into bowls and top with favorite toppings. Enjoy!
