Zucchini Taco Bowl!

Happy Friday friends!
It is another chilly day here for Houston! We got a cold front and the temps dropped from 68 to 30! Then when I woke up it was real feel of 19! Too cold for my liking! One of the main reasons I moved away from Chicago was the cold winter weather!  My body does not do well!
Anyways, being so chilly on and off, I have been experimenting with different warm me up meals! Soup is always our go-to, but even that gets old after so many weeks, haha.

I received the Kitchen-Aid spiralizer attachment for Christmas and it has been fun playing around with it.  I was craving some taco styled food the other day, but didn’t have all the ingredients for taco soup, and I was not in the mood for a taco salad.  I looked to see what I had that might make for a good base, and I had a ton of zucchini just begging to be eaten!

Today I am linking up today for Foodie Friday with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Farrah from Fairyburger for our 5 ingredient or less themed week! Mine is 5 main ingredients plus spices 😉  I may have a few more than 5 ingredients, but there are only 5 steps to putting this yummy taco creation together!



  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 zucchinis, spiralized (or sliced and chopped if you don’t have a spiralizer)
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 roma tomato, chopped
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • Spices to taste (pink salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, red pepper flakes)
  • 1 tbs avocado oil


  1. Saute zucchini and red pepper in half of the avocado oil.
  2. In a separate pan brown the ground turkey with the remaining oil. Add spices to taste.
  3. Toss the veggies and meat together in large bowl.
  4. Add tomato and avocado (and cheese if you desire) on top.
  5. Enjoy
