Keto Burrito Bowls
Admit it. Tuesday rolls around and all you can think about is Taco Tuesday. Or maybe it is now called Keto Taco Tuesday. Nah, that doesn't sound as good.
Well, you don't have any keto taco shells, so now what? Introducing my kid famous burrito bowls! My kids look forward to burrito bowl night just as much as I do!
They are quick and easy and a definite crowd pleaser. I will sometimes double the recipe just so I can have leftovers for a few days. This is one of those meals that really does taste good warmed up.

How to Make Keto Burrito Bowls
Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add ground turkey to the pan and cook until the meat begins to brown.
Add onion and pepper to the pan and cook until turkey is well browned and vegetables are soft. This usually takes about 7 minutes. Stir often.
Add the water, taco seasoning and optional red pepper flakes. Mix well.
Add warm, cooked cauliflower rice to each bowl. Top with the turkey mixture and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
Can I Use a Different Meat for Keto Burrito Bowls
Yes you can! I alternate between 3 different kinds of meats. I like to use ground turkey, ground beef and ground sausage.
I find that the ground sausage is the most flavorful on its own, but with all the tasty flavors added to this recipe, you can dress up any meat.
Burrito Bowl Toppings
Some of my favorite keto burrito bowl toppings are:
You can get creative and have some fun with your favorite keto burrito bowl toppings.
How to Store Keto Burrito Bowls
It is best to store leftover burrito bowls in an airtight container in the fridge. It will stay fresh, if stored properly, for 3-4 days.
Can I Make This Ahead of Time?
You sure can. You can make the entire recipe ahead of time and warm it up together or you can brown the meat, prep the veggies and simply do the final steps right before you want to serve it. Totally up to you!
I will even throw this into a breakfast scramble the next day!
I sometimes make rice and black beans for the non-keto people to add to their bowls. While my kids will often eat the same keto meal as I me, I don't feel it is a requirement.
So, often I will make the cauliflower rice for hubby and I and then the kiddos get rice and black beans. I've even been known to slip a few black beans into my bowl.
Either way, this is an easy keto meal that can easily be modified to satisfy the entire family!
