Floating Tacos

This recipe will blow your mind!
Not only is it incredibly easy to make, but the amount of flavor
packed into this meal is shocking, especially since there are so few ingredients. My dear friend Kyle was kind enough to let me share his floating taco recipe with all of you, and I am confident that this recipe will become a signature dish in your home. This meal has very little prep and cooking time, and perfect for entertaining.


Serves 4

1 pound ground turkey ( I use a higher fat content ground turkey)
1 red pepper chopped
1 red onion chopped (reserve 1/4 cup  or so for guacamole)
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons garlic powder or onion powder
1 bag gluten-free tortilla chips ( pick your favorite, and this is optional)
4 cups raw spinach
1 small package of grape or cherry tomatoes (slice)
3 avocados
1 package Greek yogurt
Shredded pepper jack cheese ( or your favorite kind)
1 lime
Hot sauce


In a pan heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil and a splash of olive oil. Add rep pepper, onion and garlic to pan. Sautee for several minutes. Add turkey meat. Add spices. Break up turkey meat while cooking and incorporate pepper/onion/garlic into turkey. Once turkey is no longer pink turn off heat.

Plate prep:

Take a handful of corn chips and slightly break them into bite size pieces and create a bed for the spinach. Take an extra large handful of spinach and roughly cut into bite size pieces. Place the spinach over the bed of chips. Add 1/4 of the turkey mixture to the top of spinach. Garnish with shredded cheese, sliced tomatoes, guacamole, and Greek yogurt. Optional: sprinkle with ground pepper. Repeat these steps for all four servings.

Guacamole Recipe:

Mash up 3 avocados and add a sprinkle of chopped garlic and 1/4 cup chopped red onion. Add a handful of  chopped tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle 1/2 lime. Mix all together.
