  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 can Bush’s Black Beans, rinsed and drained

For the rice bowls:

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • sliced avocado
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomato
  • plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • hot sauce
  • extra salsa


  1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add your ground turkey to pan and break up with a wooden spoon.
  2. As your ground turkey is browning, add your bell pepper, onion and spices to the meat mixture. Continue to cook for about 5-7 minutes until veggies are softened and turkey is cooked through.
  3. Add black beans and salsa to turkey mixture and gently stir to combine. Turn off heat.
  4. Build your rice bowls by adding a scoop of brown rice to your bowl, then topping with turkey and black bean mixture. Add toppings of choice but I love to add shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, avocado, Greek yogurt and hot sauce.
