  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp mild chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 4 cups cooked white or brown rice I use a bag of frozen rice reheated in the microwave
  • 1 ripe avocado cut into quarters and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh salsa or diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves optional
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • any additional toppings you like, such as sliced olives, hot sauce, chopped onion/scallions...


  • Cut the peppers and onion into a small dice. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, cumin, and salt.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced peppers and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the veggies begin to brown.
  • Add the ground chicken, and use a wooden spoon to break the meat up into little bits. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the meat and veggies and continue to stir for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through (no longer pink).
  • To serve, spoon the chicken and veggies over the cooked rice in a bowl. Top with avocado, salsa, cilantro (if using), and a dollop of yogurt or sour cream.

    I love that all of the ingredients were super common and already in my fridge. More importantly, everyone ate it! My 6yo has been so picky lately and often won’t touch meat, especially if mixed with cooked veggies. This time she gobbled it up and did not make one negative comment. It made for such a pleasant dinner. Thank you so much for your amazing content and thoughtfulness behind it!

      Right?! Us too! My 7 year old ate almost everything including the veggies! And I love that these recipes use common ingredients! With just a little bit of help, my almost 8-year old did most of this himself! And was PROUD to serve it and eat it!
